I am working with web software security. I am happy that I had the opportunity to learn different subjects: physics, mathematics, and programming in different languages. The basis of such knowledge makes it easier to work, work possibilities are wider and it is easier to settle in the company. The acquired knowledge helps to understand the specifics of work of other IT employees (colleagues) and it is easier to work.
I greatly benefited from the fact that after starting the studies of Multimedia Technologies I was familiarised with work in television, creation of games, 3D modelling and this have not restricted me from work in that field only.
