Originally From: Oshkosh

Why did you choose the Marketing and Business Management programs?
I enjoy conversing with people, especially in a work setting, so a business degree seemed like a natural fit.
What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?
Not only am I learning new skills in the business field, but I am also learning new personal skills. I enjoy getting to meet new people and becoming a better leader by taking on new, difficult tasks. I still have much to learn and I can’t wait for the rest of my ride at FVTC.
Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
Price was a big factor for me. By attending FVTC I will graduate debt-free, whereas at a 4-year college that would not have been the case. Additionally, The staff at FVTC are incredible. They helped me get comfortable in a new setting and adjust to everything.
How has Fox Valley Technical College helped you change your life?
When I first started at FVTC I didn't have any idea what my future would bring. Thankfully I was guided in the right direction by my teachers, especially Teri Stark. My experiences have encouraged me to work hard in all of my classes and to always try my best. FVTC has also bettered my life by allowing me to dedicate myself DECA and get more involved.
What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
I am hoping to land a job as a traveling consultant or a manager of a marketing team. I am very open to different career avenues because anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
In one sentence, what's your best advice for someone who's not sure they're ready for college?
Give it a shot! It's better to try and fail rather than not try at all.
