AVERY Courtney Moore, of Norwalk, had done the retail routine for a number of years following high school, but knew she wanted more from her work life. She took the first step to realizing her career goals 18 months ago when she enrolled in the business career track program at EHOVE Ghrist Adult Career Center.
After completing the course, she landed a job entering medical demographics into a main database at Quadax in Norwalk. This first job is key to a future that includes plans to return to school for further training.
"In the long run I would like to become a certified public accountant, but for right now I'm happy to stay where I'm at and advance in the company as far as I would like to go," she said. "Making Quadax a career is definitely in my future."
EHOVE provided accelerated instruction that included exploring several business professions and preparing students for the competitive marketplace.
"EHOVE didn't just give me the knowledge of what a job may consist of, but they helped me perfect my resume and my interviewing skills to give me a better chance at competing for a job that would have been out of my reach before," Moore said.
