"I earned my Lehman certificate in nine months, passed the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) exam and became a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant."
After applying to Mount Sinea, I finally got my dream position. I have a union job that started off at $27 per hour. I get regular breaks, vacation, and I’m well taken care of. I’m not in a specific department, I’m a floater. I get to go into all of the departments and learn from each of them. Now I get to pick what I like, and pursue the areas of my work that I’m interested in. My family is so proud of me.
"The VRIA has been instrumental to my career development."
In retail I was making $15.50/hr. Now I make $23/hr with benefits, and since I’m part of a union there are so many things that I have now like access to childcare.
I took a few classes through Lehman, including any classes that come through for small business. I participated in Marketing and QuickBooks classes as well, which have been huge. It’s so important to know your numbers.
