EMPLOYER: Colorado Technical University
JOB TITLE: National Admissions Advisor
DEGREE: Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice - Human Services - 2011
I'M IN AND NOW I pave the way for those who seek progress, but don't know what route to take to begin their journey.
Describe your educational and professional background.
I have been a National Admissions Advisor here at CTU Online for just over a year and I completed my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice-Human Services in September of 2011 with a 3.83 GPA. The program was comprised of many "real life" scenarios that helped me gain real-world, practical knowledge to put forth toward my current situations and future career. Also, the instructors were individuals that had extensive experience in the field and the education to back it up. Receiving my Bachelor's at CTU was the building block that motivated me to move forward. As a result, I am now pursuing my Master of Education: Adult Education and Training at our sister school, AIU Online.
How do you help motivated students work toward their goals?
CTU was a catalyst that helped transform me in to a "REAL Learner," not just by definition, but by design. The information that was taught to me throughout my program was so profound that it gave me more insight and a better perspective on life. I in turn, shared and will continue to share it with my prospective students that I encounter each day.
What do you think are the most important aspects of achieving educational goals?
Simply put, obtaining higher education helps individuals stay current. Yes, experience is great because it shows skill, knowledge and an extensive work history shows dedication. However, a degree is a sign of progression. It shows that the individual is progressing as the time passes. Not just in the physical aspect, but also in the mental because they are continuing to learn and are open to new things.
