Medical Assisting Grad Impresses Interviewer So Much She is Hired on the Spot
Jul 10, 2012
Kayla Damron (pictured) was surfing the internet when she came upon National College’s website. She had been attending another school and didn’t feel like she was getting the attention that she needed there. When she saw that National offered small class sizes and a personalized learning experience, she knew that it was the place she was meant to be.
Kayla enrolled in the medical assisting degree program at the Pikeville Campus and it wasn’t long before she knew she had made the right decision. “I really enjoyed my instructors,” Kayla says enthusiastically, naming a few in particular: Wilma Storey and Rita Crum. “Each one had professional experience which I found really helpful especially when I began my externship,” she states. Kayla did her externship at Mettu, Crider and Johnson Pediatrics where she was able to put the skills she had learned in the classroom to use.
After graduating, Kayla worked with the campus’s career center director and got an interview at the Wellness Center/Med Spa. Her interviewer was so impressed with her knowledge and skills that she was hired on the spot! Kayla enjoys her new job and says that her family is happy that she was able to get her degree and find work doing something that she loves. Kayla plans on eventually going back to school obtain a bachelor’s degree in healthcare management – possibly in National’s online degree program.
