Detailed Ratings

I graduated from P.I.T. in 1999 with an AAS and was hired before I even graduated at an Engineering firm doing exactly what I went to school for at P.I.T. The teachers were wonderful and I learned what I needed to learn for the job that I wanted to get. The AAS was the tool that I needed to get my foot in the door as an entry level professional. It was my ticket to success. 15 years later, I'm living in Portland, Oregon living a beautiful life in a beautiful place with a very well-paying job. I went on to get a 4 year degree and am in Graduate School while also getting certified in my current profession. Don't think of this as your only step. It's the first step to becoming whomever you want to be.
