One of adverts I've read recently contained the following:
" Your audio and WP skills should include a working knowledge of MS Office and Word for Windows".
Could you tell me please, what does "WP" mean?

Hello Marina_i
I'd say it means 'word processing' given that it later mentions MS Word.
All the best

I like to be a computer programmer.

I would like to apply for the jobs of research and development of material science because i majored in that filed for my bachelor's and master's degrees; moreover, i am very interested in studying, conducting experiments, and constantly being in touch with innovative things. I think that the progress in technology is attained by the accumulation of every small step even though there is just a little discovery. Now, i prepare for my application of phD degree. I hope i can become an expertise in specific field of material science and dedicate my ability to helping the development of technology. Also, i look forward to working in a research institute in the top of the world.
