Meet David: Advancing in a New Career
“HACC will make sure you will succeed. They have a support system that will not let you fail.”
David Walker had been laid off from a large communication company where he worked for eight years. He felt frustrated because he knew his certificates were outdated and that he needed more education. David said, “I jumped at the idea of going to an accredited college like HACC.”
David tried online courses but found that online learning was not a good fit for him. “HACC is in my hometown and that was the deciding factor,” he said.
Computer information systems is a booming field, and the demand for jobs is high. David will graduate with a credential that can lead him into a satisfying new career.
“I plan to find a job with the government within the IT field of my choice. I feel comfortable with the courses and the support from HACC,” he said.
In the aftermath of a big life change, David said HACC opened his mind. “HACC has helped me look at my life through a microscope and to see the excuses that I had towards getting a better education,” he said.
