"Perks and Pitfalls of Development."
Pros: I love that my job allows me to interact with a multitude of people. You have the opportunity to build long lasting relationships with many people and are able to build strong connections. It is not a traditional 9:00-5:00 desk job as you get the opportunity to travel a lot.
