"#Python Solution from array import * def problem_1(N,p,q): array_1 = array( 'i', range(1,N+1)) for n in array_1: if n % p == 0: print 'OUT' elif n % q == 0: print 'THINK' elif n % p == 0 and n % q==0: print 'OUTTHINK' else: print n problem_1(20,6,8)" Doent't work, think how an else-if sentence is used in compilation :) Less

Explain how you can add value to the company with your knowledge and skills?

5 Answers

Sadly because of my lack of experience and education I have few skills. What I do have is my work ethic and my constant desire to be be the best at whatever I do. I’ve always been a fast learner. I know I am right for the job , I’m looking for the job thats right for me. Less

I will add value by ensuring that the company operates optimally, having good interpersonal relationship with colleagues and customers. Delivering quality results on or before the deadline. Less

I will ensure quality projects are delivered at minimum cost.
