What Ive taken from this assignmentThis assignment has taught me that theres different jobs out there, no matter what field/ industry youre interested in, you can always use the information you had learned during this semester relating to technology in your job. I also had found out that these IT related jobs in retail pays really well and are usually very similar to each other regarding soft skills and the technical skills. This assignment was definitely helpful because it serves as a job hunt for me, a soon-to-be B.A graduate in Business. It showed me what jobs are out there, how much they pay, and what is required of me both in my soft skills and technical skills, in which I had already taken some classes in.
