"When I first started working in my field, I quickly realized that I was not equipped to perform as well as I could. Part of the reason was because my education did not prepare me well enough for the challenges I would face in the IT industry. Walden provides quality education that applies to the real world. I use the lessons I learned from my courses every day."
