There's obviously much about me that there is to know, but for a website I don't want to overload it with too much stuff, so I decided to merely put a HTML version of my C.V. here.

I'm a potential employee looking for a career as a programmer. Currently equipped with excellent C/C++ skills, a highly enthusiastic and outgoing personality, and topped off with the fact I'm a great team player, I'm looking to join your professional, creative environment.

I believe that I take a flexible approach to work, with me quite happily working within a team and also on my own, proven through all my previous job experience. Also, suited to programming, I have a natural way with numbers as seen with my studies of Mathematics in the last few years, an essential quality.

I am also sociable, and enjoy meeting new people. Having good work relationships is very important to me, but is secondary to the task in hand. I am able to remain focused on a task and be calm under pressure - working to a specific deadline was a large part of my role in my supermarket job, and as part of my education in general. Overall I believe I have a fair idea about what a team and business wants from me and I think I could live up to that. Even though I'm currently studying and haven't had experience working within Industry, I believe that all these qualities combined with my willingness to learn mean I would suit it and it would suit me.
