What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?
I have the learned the importance of personal branding and networking. It isn’t always what you know, but who you know and how you present yourself that makes the biggest difference.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
I chose FVTC because of its high quality of education. I also researched their graduate employment rates and found them to be very high in my chosen area of study. FVTC is giving me the quality education and training that I need to be successful in the workforce.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
I am looking to find a job within an office setting here in the Fox Valley. It is my goal to work for a company with a strong mission statement and overall positive atmosphere. It’s the environment and the people that you work with that make a job great, not necessarily the tasks that you undertake. I would also like to work somewhere with opportunities for growth. I love to learn!
