"I have a passion for helping people meet their own goals – whether it is gaining employment in a career they love or negotiating the best salary. My goal is to guide graduates into the job that fits who they are, because employers hire people and their attitude, not just their degree or even skills."

  • How do you motivate struggling students (i.e. academics, personal issues, career guidance)? Encourage them to ASK FOR HELP. No one can understand what you’re going through or what your needs are unless you ask. In the seven and a half years I’ve been at IntelliTec I’ve learned that when you ask someone, they’ll help you deal with a problem directly, or do their best to guide you toward resources to solve the problem.
  • Have you faced a difficult/challenging time in your life? If yes, how did you resolve the issue? Sheesh, who hasn’t? I took some time to prioritize what mattered most, determined what steps to take next, and then tackled them one at a time – with the intention of getting out of the mess and onto a more manageable path.
  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for students, what would it be? “Do your research.” Research your career options with your prospective degree; see if you really want to do that day in and day out. Ensure that you’re making the most knowledgeable decision in order to make the best investment into yourself. When the going gets rough – and it will – you will know you made the best decision as long as you did all your research before enrolling.
  • What would you tell a student who was on the fence about a particular program of study? Talk to the career service advisor that works with that specific program or do a career search online. Review all the different job descriptions and potential earnings. Read every bulleted description and if it interests you and you want to learn more about it, then definitely enroll and acquire the skills and education to be successful!

  • Share something unique about yourself you believe might help a student get to know you outside of school. I volunteer often because I have a great passion for changing lives for the better. I encourage students to expand their networks by doing the same. It's a direct opportunity to show potential employers your professional side, and you never know what opportunities might become available.
  • What do believe sets IntelliTec apart form other colleges? We take the one-on-one approach where we interact, coach, and motivate with students directly. It helps to create a very personable relationship. Plus, it allows us as career advisors, to help guide the student toward the right employment "fit" for their individual personality.
  • What would you tell a student who was on the fence about attending a program of at IntelliTec? I'd encourage the student to sit in a class one day in a program of interest so they could get an actual understanding of our hands-on approach. Then I'd talk about the opportunities available after graduation and share some of the success stories of previous graduates.
  • With all the challenges in the education field, what inspires you to work in this industry? Quite simply, I love what I do. Everyday I get to help people realize their dreams. I've always believed that if you never give up you'll make it happen. As I share that with students, I remind them if they believe in themselves, then the sky is the limit.

Students get the "real deal" when they work with Donald. He's genuine about who he is and speaks with students, not to them. He sees himself as a champion in the student's corner who wants to challenge him or her to rise to the occasion, because life is going to happen no matter what.

Get to know Don...

  • What is it about this career field you enjoy so much? I feel like I can truly impact a person's life. Not only the life of the student, but their family and their community.
  • How do you motivate a struggling student? I remind students that no matter where you are in life you can bounce back from it, especially if you allow yourself to learn from your failures. This can actually drive you toward even greater successes in the future.
  • Have you faced a difficult/challenging time in your life? If yes, how did you resolve the issue? Like most people, I have faced many difficulties and challenges in life. I believe the key to resolving those are to be accountable for your part and to learn from it. Then…move on!
  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students, what would it be? Nothing great will happen for you until you decide to take the first step.

"I think students are very impressed with the knowledge of the instructors, their personal education and training, and the support provided by all departments. We aren’t a typical college; we help our graduates find jobs and always have their backs."

Get to know Pam...

  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students, what would it be? Potential employers want to hear you talk about your college success and accomplishments. This isn’t the time to be shy – be clear about who you are and what you offer.
  • Furthermore, what life or career advice would you offer to students about to graduate? Don’t give up! Persistence is the key. If you pound the pavement, going after what you want, you’ll eventually find the job you want. You’ll come across many closed doors, but it’s how you react to the door that can set you apart from other job-seekers.
  • How do you motivate students who are struggling with the job search? Put simply, I just keep bugging them. I’m on the phone, offering words of encouragement, reminding them that they are our customers and our job is to get them working. Period. That means anything we can do, from reviewing and polishing resumes, conducting mock interviews and providing employer contacts.
  • Have you faced a difficult or challenging time in your life? If so, how did you resolve the issue? With a little faith and recognizing the importance of taking it one day at a time.

He may spend 90% of his time off campus, but the end result is visibility in the community, which equates to job opportunities for IntelliTec students.

  • What led you to this career field? I enjoy translating my sales experience into the interviewing process, so our students can use these skills to get the job. Nailing the interview is so much about interpersonal communication and initial presentation. When I start working with students, I know they already have the technical skills; I get to teach them the how to close the deal.
  • How would you describe your relationships with students? I try to be as visible as possible so they don't see me as "the guy in the white shirt and tie". I want them to know I'm receptive to working with them and coaching them in the right direction.
  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students, what would it be? Believe in luck – but the definition of luck is where preparation meets opportunity. If Plan A doesn't always work, it's amazing how Plan B does when you stay the course of positive determination.
  • Share something unique about yourself you believe might help a student get to know you outside of school. Believe it or not, I was born and raised in Colorado and I have never been skiing!

  • What is it about this career field you enjoy so much? I really love helping individuals develop employability skills to obtain jobs in their desired careers. Most students aren’t aware of all the steps to secure employment. There’s an entire framework to the process and sometimes it can take a little time and patience. I feel it’s my job to talk grads through the progression. Some think the end point is submitting their resume/application, but that just sets in motion the next set of steps…which hopefully lead to an interview.
  • Please share a memorable moment/success story you’ve experienced at IntelliTec. I had the opportunity to help a single mom obtain employment. This entailed a lot of moral support as well as assistance with job applications. About six months after graduation she landed a job in her field. What an exciting moment for both of us! Her self-esteem soared. And though we all knew it, she finally felt like she was worth something after all the let-downs in her life. The icing on the cake was the doctor she worked for loved her.
  • How do you motivate students who are struggling with the job search? Students generally reach out when things get dire, and at that point their stress levels are running pretty high. My goal is to meet with them right away and guide them through a number of online applications. This helps them feel confident that their skills are still marketable. I try to get them to focus on the bigger picture, and not let little things get in the way.
  • What career advice would you share with a student about to graduate? Believe in yourself and show employers just how much you have to offer. Your newly acquired skills are not only marketable but sought after. With the right attitude you’ll find a job you want.

"I really enjoy being able to help students with their resumes needs, coaching them on interview skills, and best of all, when they come in to share that they have been hired."

Get to know Kristy...

  • With all the challenges and frustrations working in the field of education, what drives you to remain working in it? Each student comes to IntelliTec with their own story. Some face really difficult challenges in their stories, but when they walk across the stage to receive their diploma, it's a true celebration. They not only overcame their story, but beat it with their success.
  • What advice would you offer prospective students? Starting today be selfish. Think about what you want in life and go after it. Never give up because your career should be something you love, and isn't that worth fighting for? To have the ability to do what you love?
  • What life or career advice would you offer to students about to graduate? Don't sell yourself short. Receiving a college degree or certificate is only a stepping-stone to what the future may hold.
  • Share something unique about yourself you believe might help a student get to know you outside of school. I enjoy spending time with my family and doing a variety of activities including playing games, competing in lots of different sports, and watching movies.
