Jennifer Foreman and Jessica O’Neal have already landed great jobs and they haven’t even graduated yet! Both will be graduating with associate degrees from the business administration-accounting program and they will be working as administrative assistants for a local construction company. In their new positions, they will be assisting the company’s accountant, working with inventory and invoice verification, filing, and other administrative duties.
Jennifer and Jessica, already great friends, came to National together because of the small class sizes and the flexible scheduling. They say that they owe a lot of their success to their favorite instructor, Latika Roy, department chair for the business and accounting programs and recipient of the college’s Distinguished Teaching Award, who has really prepared them for a professional career.
Jessica feels great about her accomplishment and tells fellow students to “stick with it.” She knows it is hard to balance school, work, and family, but she says, “it is worth it in the end.” Both Jessica and Jennifer plan to re-enter National College to get their bachelor’s degrees upon graduation.
