Jo-an V. Agency Contractor

Virtual Assistant

Philippines - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 4

When I was studying, I'd been the class President in our class for the last two semesters~ I learned how to be a leader, a team player and a follower. I learned a lot from my Computer Science degree such as C++, Visual Basic, Oracle, Cisco, Solaris, HTML, and Java programming Languages : but still I want to learn more.. For HTML, we were asked to create a website using Notepad with about 15 pages having links, video and audio. With Visual Basic, we also created (our team) an inventory system and MS access as our repository. During our System Development project, I was assigned to be for Coding team and I also assisted with analyzing what do we needed and not needed for our system. So our team was assigned to connect NETBEANS + ORACLE , and oracle serve as our repository. I also experienced to do a system all by myself using Netbeans with MS ACCESS during my On the job Training. But I am still developing it, and I am still seeking more experience to gain more knowledge so I will finish developing this program. I never want to dissatisfied my client, since I believe that they deserve more than what they paid for. I enjoy learning new things Jo-An V.
