“I was very apprehensive about this class. I didn’t think I would gain any helpful information to aid in my current position. However after the first speaker Dr. David Banks, Phd., career development, I was so excited about what or who was to come with the next session. I learned how to be a professional with insight on how to best communicate with, customers, co-workers, and management. As the course goes on all the training and skills you are gaining prepares you for an interview as well as other professional engagements. I have received a job offer and with all the skill that I now have, I know it is up to me to achieve it. This the best program for any age person who is willing to do the work, take a self evaluation, and apply the skills and training to get, keep and move forward in a career or job.”
