- Region: Northeast
- Position: Health Care
I left my job in health care feeling very disillusioned and demoralized and decided to return to school to upgrade my computer skills and study business. Following sponsorship from MNBC, I enrolled in the Applied Business Technology at Northern Lights College.
The courses were stimulating and practical. My grades were excellent and I began to feel more and more confident as time passed. Upon graduating I received a job offer, (once again in health care), and began working the next business day after the final exam. The skills I gained in the ABT program have increased the responsibilities within my job, and have given me greater understanding of the working of a hospital environment. My working hours are suitable for me as a single mother and the pay is good. Most importantly, I am happy in my job and find the work very satisfying. I could not have asked for more from an educational opportunity.
Thanks to Carol and Linda for making this possible.
