In 2008, I graduated from ASA College with an Associate Degree in Business Administration, majoring in Accounting. I always liked Accounting, and I am happy that it has become my career. During my high school years, I got an Excellence Award in Accounting. At ASA, I enjoyed the teachers who were always there to explain a topic which we did not understand. The course schedules were flexible and students could utilize resources in both campus locations.
Though I had plenty of experience, I was unemployed for two years before 2008. ASA was the motivating factor to get me back into the workforce. It prepared me by supplying the skills needed to obtain a career, and I am thankful for that. Now I am employed as a full-time Benefits Examiner in the Retirement Department of the Amalgamated Life Insurance Company. I still maintain contact with ASA Career Services and Alumni Department. They provide life-time placement assistance and help graduates with different aspects of their career. I would like all ASA graduates to be successful and enjoy the many wonderful things life has to offer.
