Search Plan Profile

I am looking for a company that can further develop my communication skills while allowing me to demonstrate my computer, writing, editing, and graphics experience. I am searching around the Greater Philadelphia Area.


I am interested in working for a company such as Gartner, as it will allow me to showcase the skills I have learned in my Education Media minor. I would work to promote and teach new education software to companies in the Information Technology and Services Department.
