Wendy A.

Administrative Office Professional Graduate

Wendy found herself working in the retail market and feeling unfulfilled. She didn’t want to spend the rest of her life in a store, so she made the brave decision to go after something bigger. She knew that going back to school was the way to get there.

“There were a ton of other choices out there and I actually did a lot of research on them. There were two things that I really, really liked about Career Quest. The first one was the smaller classroom sizes. Number two, I had heard from other people the outstanding career services department that Career Quest has.” 

Wendy enrolled in Career Quest’s Administrative Office Professional program. “I am a little older and so I was concerned about whether or not I would be able to do it, but they’ve helped make it so easy for me. I could not be happier.” But Wendy’s desire to get a good education doesn’t stop there. She wants to pay it forward.


“I’ve always wanted to teach. I would love to maybe someday come back and motivate somebody else like me.”

Wendy’s advice to other students: “Don’t be afraid. They have thought of everything in this school to make it so that you succeed. Do it, do it, do it.”   


“Don’t be afraid. They have thought of everything in this school to make it so that you succeed."


“I was working in a factory for 13 years when I got laid off. I needed to do something totally different and I started at Career Quest. Now I’m teaching here. I love it. “


“The instructors at Career Quest are awesome,” she said. “I couldn’t have done this on my own. They really do set you up to succeed.”
