He says these “were the best practical tips I have learned throughout my own 33 years of working.” He also mentioned his two daughters, each having attended universities and received Bachelor’s degrees, who ended up returning to technical colleges for the specific training they needed to attain careers. Steever specified that IntelliTec graduates are a step ahead of many others, because they already have the practical knowledge and hands-on training to immediately work in their career fields.
