While I am in school it can give leverage and accountability to work ethic. My travel can be local or 10-30 miles from where i am living. Which is Quincy MA. I am currently attending school at Quincy college for computer science it may not be relative to the field i attend for college but i can say its useful when it comes to customer relations and support.
