    Career services helped me during the transition to moving to Texas. I moved to Texas; I stayed out there for a year and a half. Career services assisted me with the job employment out there. When I returned back to Georgia career services also helped me to obtain employment here immediately.

    I was drawn to the Medical Assistant program at FORTIS College, in part because I have always wanted a better understanding of health and wellness due to health issues in my family. I also have a passion for taking care of people and have thought for a long time that I wanted a career in healthcare.
