    Carleton alum Beth Ashworth is now working in the IT subfield of Quality Assurance, and recently contacted us. She explained to us that "if you ever have students looking for an entry level IT job who are both techy and good at communicating/writing, but aren't necessarily interested in programming/developer jobs, QA is a good field to go into." She indicated that her consulting company (www.olenick.com) has a training program for newly graduated students, and she'd be happy to work with current students to help them get in. Contact her directly at beth.ashworth@gmail.com.
