Pharmacy Technician Grad Gets Multiple Job-Offers
Jul 24, 2012
Mariah Moore (pictured), a pharmacy technician graduate from the Lexington Campus, is working for On-Site RX at a pharmacy for city employees. On-Site RX contacted Career Center Director Cheryl Howell who referred Mariah and several other pharmacy technician graduates to the company for interviews. “The career center was really helpful because I wasn’t going to settle,” said Mariah, who had multiple job offers and accepted the position with the best pay and hours.
Mariah came to National College after several friends recommended the school to her. She had attended other colleges but never completed her program. She liked that the pharmacy technician program took just a year to complete and she also liked the smaller class size that National offers.
She feels she was well trained for her new career as a pharmacy technician. “(National) helped me be more prepared for what’s really out there. In my classes they teach real life experiences—other schools just go through the motions.”
She is happy to have completed the program and knows that it will mean a more secure future for herself and her son. “I’ve been in and out of school…not really finishing anything. Even though it was a short program, I finished something. I was extremely proud of myself for doing that,” she said.
