Material Handling – A Step in the Right Direction

I have a really cool story that may be a helpful resource for any young graduates looking for work. I graduated from SDSU back in the earlier part of this millennium, around 2001. At that point, I had spent the majority of my young life getting an education. Most people that went to school for 7 years, ended up with a master’s or Ph.D. degree. Not me. But I am proud to say that I did get my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, and was ready to begin my career. Step into the right direction when choosing your career.
