I always wanted to work in the Medical field.
I never thought that this dream of mine would ever come true. I worked for most of my life in jobs that gave me no satisfaction other than a paycheck. I wanted more. I used to drive past the Institute of Technology every day and wonder what they offered.
One day I stopped in.
I had just been laid off due the winter rains and once again, at Christmas, I was unemployed. I asked if there was someone I could speak to about the school and what it offered. I spoke to Megan and found that IOT offered me the medical career training I always thought was just a dream.
It’s not an easy course. I can honestly say it was pretty intense.
You will succeed only if you put effort into it. You will only get out of it what you put in it. I studied very hard, every day. I asked for help when I needed it and I tried to help my classmates when they needed it. I kept a positive attitude in class and I made goals for myself.
I achieved all that I wanted to, because I wanted to. The entire staff at IOT was always there for me and willing to lend a hand when needed. Now I am employed as a Medical Assistant. I have a career, not a job.
