Over the past few weeks, we wanted you to SHOW YOURSELF SOME LOVE and tell us why you should win a $5,000 bursary to the program of your choice at triOS College. Today we chose a winner and congratulations to Mike Rook of Brantford! Here’s Mike’s entry:
Tell us about yourself:
I am looking at going back to school to gain more knowledge in the IT industry and met with Nashina from triOS college to figure out the right program for me. I have had an interest in computers since I started high school and have 4 years experience working in IT with no prior educational background as it was a position i was promoted to after several years, and would like to get my certifications to pursue a new career in an IT field.
What Program are you interested in at triOS College?:
Information Technology Administrator
Why do you need to show yourself some love this year?
I recently lost my job due to restructuring after 18 years with the company. I started with the company right out of High School an because of that never obtained a post secondary education. It has been a long term goal of mine to obtain a post secondary education and in light of recent events I feel this is the perfect opportunity to accomplish that goal.
We called Mike to give him the good news and he was a little shocked to say the least….
