MyComputerCareer Student Successes
2018 30-Week Program Completion Rates
Susan Thomas was driving a truck working more than 50 hours a week and late-night shifts when her grandson was placed into her care. She knew she needed to change her lifestyle and increase her income to support him. In 2014, she enrolled at MyComputerCareer and worked with the Career Services team upon completing her program. Susan is now employed with Dell in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, where she has a pathway for advancement. She has also doubled her income, reduced her working hours and even gets to work from home most days.
Robert Felvus served in the military for eight years, where he suffered traumatic explosions resulting in PTSD and suicidal thoughts. Through a Veteran’s Affairs appointment, he was able to get support and learned about MyComputerCareer, where he went on to earn five certificates and secure a job in IT before even officially graduating. He’s now able to provide for his family with a substantially higher income, as well as spend more quality time with family with four-day work weeks. Robert also credits MyComputerCareer with giving him a renewed sense of purpose and confidence, that along with professionals and family, did wonders in helping him heal mentally.
Tommy Rios served in the Navy straight out of high school for five years and then worked in manual production labor for 17 years. He knew he needed to make a change because he was underpaid, working long hours, and unsatisfied in his job. A radio ad introduced him to MyComputerCareer, which helped him get a new IT career making double the income than he had for 17 years at his old job, while working substantially fewer hours.
