I’m proud to say that I have a job that I’m always actively helping somebody
I’m a Kalamazoo Valley Community College (KVCC) student transitioning to a junior at Western Michigan University, and I work in the IT support center at Bronson.
KVCC and Bronson have a partnership program that allows me to continue to earn my degree while getting paid, on-the-job experience. Bronson has been really great about working around my school schedule and making sure I’m continuing toward my education while I’m working here.
It’s a great opportunity to be in this program. It’s better than your standard part-time job. I’m putting to use all of the skills I’ve learned in my classes and am continuing to learn new things. I’m also seeing how the things we’ve learned in class can be applied. For example, I’ve taken what I’ve learned in a Windows Server class at KVCC and been able to see it in practice here at Bronson.
I’m proud to say that I have a job that I’m always actively helping somebody. There are people who rely on me and my technical skills to get through their everyday job. If someone calls me in a panic because something is not working, I can calmly help them through it and get them back to work.
