Tyler plans to attend a technical school for a degree in Applied Technology. His career goal is “to not only have a job but a career in which I’m passionate about and love.”
“WBL has helped me plan for the future by not only preparing me for what’s ahead but opened my eyes to the opportunity around me.”
“The biggest thing I have learned from my experiences on the job is to treat others as you would want to be treated. And I’m doing that people will remember who you are.”
“I would recommend WBL to students who want to get ahead, and by get ahead I mean students who want to learn and grow as a student in the workplace. It teaches you the essentials to success.”
