Mr. Telecom Negotiator
on-traditional student for undergrad. Went back to school @ 30 and graduated with a 3.3 GPA, 2 degrees (SCM and Sustainability), and a certificate (Data Analytics) – while working 30ish hours a week. I have a couple of Ds on my transcript due to the large workload but, retook for better grades. Since I have a son with disabilities I haven’t pursued any additional certificates. I do have some casual volunteering work.
