Having an interest in computers led Scott to consider ITT Tech for his educational
needs. "I made the right decision [to attend ITT Tech] because this is where
I need to be to accomplish my goals. When I started attending ITT Tech, I realized
that networking is a profession where I could be challenged and grow; that was
it for me."
He confirmed that he made the right choice when during his first quarter he
struggled with a logic course. "I asked a teacher for help and he did everything
he could to help me understand the material, including staying late and coming
in on a Saturday. The staff at ITT Tech is great about doing whatever it takes
to help you succeed."
When asked if studying networking was beneficial, Scott said, "I think
it's good because I have so many ways I can go with the company I am working for."
"When I started my job, I didn't have a lot of technical experience, but
my company was comfortable in my training and education at ITT Tech and decided
to take a chance on me."
Scott is currently a computer technician with a small computer company. He
is partly responsible for the entire company network and also does inside sales.
