My name is Braeden Santos. I am an IT professional with experience in Networking, Systems Administration, Cybersecurity, and PC Servicing/Troubleshooting. I am currently attending New England Institute of Technology in Rhode Island pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Cybersecurity and Network Engineering. Previously, I have attended Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School in Massachusetts, majoring in the Information Support Services and Networking career and technical program.
In my years of IT schooling, I have been taught many of the skills that are essential to getting into a career in the Information Technology field. I have just obtained my Associate’s degree and am currently working towards my Bachelor’s degree, which I am slated to complete the program by September of 2019. Many of my soft skills include leadership, customer service/help desk, email and phone support, and teamwork. I have also picked up the majority of the skills relevant to the IT field on my own by experimenting with computers, reading technical articles and how-to’s, etc. As an IT professional, I am a strong proponent of self-learning. In other words, learning does not stop at the post-secondary level, you will always learn for the rest of your life.
In my free time, I enjoy PC gaming, listening to various types of music from heavy metal to electronic, and hanging out with friends and family.
