“Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” is one of the questions I was asked during the orientation when I originally enrolled at Success College. I generically answered “with a job “… just like every student enlisting in school wishes for. I have always been career oriented and being successful was always at the top of my priorities list. However, I needed the push, connections, and the tools to go in the right direction that Success College offers. Because my instructor works in the field he was able to prepare me for what this real-world industry entailed. Also, with all the certifications that were offered it enabled me to stand out among other candidates in the counselling field. It has now been five years after graduation, and I am happy to announce that I am an Executive Director of a provincial not-for-profit organization.  I can safely say I don’t think I would be where I am today if it wasn’t for my instructor and the family I gained while I attended Success College. Your classmates will become a support system and your instructor will become a lifelong mentor. Thank you, Success College, and my instructor James in helping me with the first step in my career path!
