Hello, my name is Michael Perry, and thank you for checking out my portfolio. I’m a Mid-Level Technician for my company and am currently enjoying college at Ivy Tech as a CINS Major. I’m very excited to have the opportunity to work in the field that I’m currently attending school for. I recently achieved the Java Certification, which is on the path of my Associates Degree.

Since I’m a part-time student, I’ll be taking my three leftover classes over the next two semesters. After I achieve the CINS, I’m going to take a break and work toward certain certifications from CompTIA and Microsoft, before I return to school to further my education. My following portfolio contains the following:

  • Career Goals
  • Resume with References
