Fortis Grads Count Their Blessings at Thanksgiving

General EducationNovember 20, 2015

In today’s economy, many new college grads face challenges previous generations didn’t face. It used to be that a student studied hard for several years, graduated college and then joined the workforce shortly afterward. But times are tougher now and landing that first job after graduation isn’t a guarantee. FORTIS’ education and training programs combined with the relationships we have built in each marketplace have been successful in helping some recent grads find employment. As Thanksgiving approaches, let’s highlight some of the feedback we’ve gotten from recent graduates. They are thankful for us, and we are certainly thankful for them.

Jennifer O.

“I have a career that I'm extremely proud of. I have also found a great job because of my education. I will forever be grateful to all of you for helping get through this chapter in my life successfully. Thank you.”

Lorraine T.

“Thank you, Fortis, for helping me to achieve the most important thing that I sought after, by ensuring that I had the tools and training to become a successful and creative stylist.”

Amy F.

“I cannot thank you enough for the care, support and knowledge you have given me over the past year. Each class was full of new and exciting things to learn. This was my time to shine and I had to take everything I could from this experience. Every question I asked, and there were a lot, was answered fully. With that extended support I was able to start not only my new career as a Certified Massage Therapist but my new business.”

David P.

“Fortis was the stepping stone that helped start the career that supports my life today.  Where would I be without Fortis Institute? I would probably be in the same dead job as the day I first walked on campus. Thank you to everyone at Fortis, from the admissions department to the teaching staff.”

Ken H.

“Thanks to Fortis College, I now have the ‘real world’ experience necessary to lead a successful career! I am a practical nursing graduate holding down two LPN jobs now and back in school with Fortis to complete my Associates of Registered Nursing.”

Angela R.

“Thank you Fortis College for everything. There are too many advantages this college possesses to mention, but I am so pleased that I chose the best school for my nursing education. I recommend Fortis to everyone that is considering continuing their education.” At FORTIS, we are thankful for the great communities we build and the careers we help shape. What are you thankful for this year?
