I can do this job and career

I have worked hard my entire life, long hours even 70 hours each week most of the time. I have utilized my spare time to study computer topics as best I could and to get a little work done on projects. I believe I have a strong base of knowledge and with some immersion time could become a great asset. I’d love to work a career that is my true passion, Java Programming.
