Graduate Enjoying Career in the Technical Field

Sep 15, 2014

Graduate Jeffrey Buskirk found out about American National University through the internet.  “The programs seemed interesting, it was about two blocks from my house, and I have a relative who graduated from here as well.”  Jeffrey graduated from the Akron Area Campus in September 2013.

Jeffrey had always worked with electronics and had completed lots of jobs for friends and relatives.  He is currently working for Simplex-IT as a junior technician.  “We monitor, maintain, and help customers with network infrastructure no matter how small or big and we enjoy doing it,” he said.  Jeffrey added that they take care of customers “from start to finish; with those having nothing in place to already having infrastructure in place or just needing that extra perspective.”

Jeffrey said that customers bring in networks and servers, sometimes they need software loaded, or they have internet connectivity problems.  A lot of the work is done remotely from their company but they also go on-site to their customers. 

“I love computers and helping people,” said Jeffrey.  In the future, he plans to stay with the company.  “It’s the truth,” he continued.  “It’s a family environment.  You don’t usually find that in big companies.  Everyone works as a team – we help each other.”

Reflecting on his education at National, Jeffrey said, “You’ll get out of your education what you put into it and if you buckle down and spend time learning what you are going to school for, you’ll go far.” 

Graduate Jeffrey Buskirk loves his career as he gets to help people with their information technology needs.
