I was a nuclear Machinist Mate Third Class in the U.S. Navy. After my discharge, I was unable to secure a job with my training and experience. I applied for three years without success at Y12 National Security Complex, a leading nuclear security unit in the Department of Energy. I also had an aversion to starting fresh and pursuing a degree in a field that I was not passionate about. I started doing some research into veteran-friendly colleges that accept military credits. That is how I came across TESU. This institution has allowed me develop knowledge in the field that I love and worked extremely hard for while simultaneously working a full-time job to provide for my family. As I was finishing my degree at TESU, I started networking at a nuclear conference and had a chance to meet the Y12 team. I just got my dream job at Y12 as I graduated from TESU. In fact, I started my new job on September 18, the same day I received my TESU diploma in the mail!”

Earning my Bachelor of Arts Degree in English allowed me to have another opportunity to interview for my dream job in public relations at an institution of higher learning. My degree has giving me the knowledge in many different academic topics, along with broadening my literary horizons thanks to my English major. It has also given me the hunger to get back into graduate schooling.”
