I became a single mother and was on my own with a one-year-old little girl. I realized that I needed to not only find a job but instead also learn new skills. When I called IOT they set an appointment to come see the campus. The staff was very kind and answered all of my questions perfectly along with showing me the campus and all that it had to offer. I chose to study Computerized Office Administration and it took 9 months to complete the diploma. From that, I have been able to grow and work with great success. Not only did I excel in my classwork, but the IOT staff also took notice and offered me a position a week before I graduated. I have worked at IOT for the last 22 years and have loved helping other students find their potential and also seeing their confidence as they leave IOT and enter the workforce.
