Students Gain Valuable Insight from Graduates during Month-Long Celebration

Nov 13, 2012

As part of a month-long celebration of medical programs, the Louisville Campus organized a forum with a panel of graduates on Thursday, October 25th. Participating were Amanda Gracie, Keyotta Sarver, Marnita Benford, Patrice Bowman, and Mary Hall who are all National graduates and are now working in their new careers in the medical field.

Finding employment in the medical field was the most popular topic of discussion. Keyotta Sarver, a medical assisting graduate who works for a dermatology practice, encouraged students to take advantage of the services that the campus career center offers. “I had a lot of interviews…before I found a job,” recalled Keyotta, who explained that Career Center Director Donna Reed-Carson set up many of the interviews for her.

Graduate Amanda Gracie, who works for a geriatrics practice, reminded the students that the impression that they make during their externship is very important. “I encourage everyone who’s doing an externship—do your best,” said Amanda adding that the site may be looking for its next employee or may recommend you to another employer.

Brittany Stice, a student who is double majoring in medical billing and coding and medical assisting, said that she enjoyed the panel discussion. “It made me feel a little more at ease that you are going to get a job and that National does help you get a job,” she said.
