Dear What Am I Worth,
I am 22 and have just completed a degree in information technology at Wanganui Polytechnic. I have been working for two companies for about eight months, one in Wellington doing programming in C/C++, ASM, in DOS, Win3.1 and Win32. My projects included fixing and improving in-house software. I was also creating and updating its websites.
My other job was doing ASP coding and database design and development. The database work involved gathering information, creating the database, GUI development and user documentation.
