What the workforce is saying
  • Bruce Johannsen
    I started working right out of high school. I didn't really like what I did but it was steady income. Then I got laid off because the company closed, and I only had a high school diploma. I found out through working with the Interest Assessment that I had a lot of different skills I'd never considered. I got my CDL and a good job that I enjoy within three months.

    As a long-time stay-at-home mom, I was concerned that I'd need a lot of college to get a good-paying job. One of my friends told me about the Career Coaching at Virginia Community Colleges. She helped me take assessments to find a career that wouldn't take years of school. Six months later I have 2 certifications and am working my way up from entry-level. I'm excited for my future!

    My parents expected me to go to college, but classes felt like a waste of time. One of our instructors did the Wizard Assessments in class and I realized there were so many careers I didn't know existed. I was able to find direction to enter my chosen field (Veterinary Science). I've made a plan to transfer to a 4-year school after graduation. I'm halfway there!
