My educational background has definitely helped me in my career thus far. As part of my job, I need to be able to synthesize vast amounts of information from different sources into a cohesive picture. Being able to communicate effectively is a vital skill in any career, and the courses in the INST program gave me plenty of opportunities to hone that skill.
