Shay Riggs-Career Center Director-Knoxville



Feb 17, 2014

WHO:
Shay Riggs—Difference Maker at the Knoxville Campus

WHAT:
• Career Center Director
• Holds a master’s degree in exercise science and sport management

WHEN:
National College of Business & Technology staff member since 2012

WHERE:
Previously worked in career services for the Tennessee Department of Labor

WHY:
“I enjoy my position as career center director. I have many roles that allow me to provide comprehensive care to our students. I meet them during the tours and orientation and give them their needed tools to learn and to use and to succeed.

“The students are conquerors. Many of our students in Knoxville are single parents and work full time as well. I thought I had it rough attending a university and living on campus. They definitely persevere. I admire them.”
Current student, Marie Blair, said this about Shay: “I graduated in September from the medical office assistant program. Shay worked with me to get a job so that I could continue on in the medical billing & coding program. Shay helped me get my résumé to a professional level. She is the best career center director; I would not have been as successful without her help.”

“Since 15 of our 16 upcoming graduates have opportunities for externships, we recently held a résumé writing workshop on campus. I thought it would be very beneficial to demonstrate to the students the different stages of a résumé,” said career center director Shay Riggs, pictured with student Marie Blair.
