"After I graduated I became the Director of Marketing and Public Relations for a successful software company due to the Job Placement assistance at the College. I was able to come in and start in an executive position only because of what I had learned. In the six months I've been working here, we have increased sales by 40% over the previous year."

Career Education: A Graduate’s Perspective

Associate degreeHello everyone!!! I’m so happy to write some words about my life now after I graduated Hubbard College of Administration.

After I completed my Associate Degree a month ago I came back home to Russia. Everything is fine with me I found a job that I wanted in the Central Training Company, which is a WISE consulting company. It is really great as I will be able to work in the company that applies Administrative Technology and advises others to help them to expand their businesses and be more prosperous. I work with very enthusiastic people in a productive atmosphere! It is a great opportunity for me to get a super experience.

But honestly when I first came home some of my friends were doubtful that I would find a job so fast. So many people around me were talking about financial crisis and that it is very difficult to find a job and a lot of similar stuff. But I understood that they just didn’t have the knowledge, which I’ve obtained from being a student of Hubbard College of Administration. I remember about using an intention and being enthusiastic. I applied correct conditions and as a result I got what I wanted.

It is only a beginning of my career but with a Hubbard College of Administration Associate Degree my chances to be successful in this world are very high! I really believe in it. Now I even more clearly can see how valuable this career education is.

P/S I so miss the friendly Hubbard College of Administration atmosphere! I will always remember that happy time:-)

A Good Impression- from Bridgette

Dear Hubbard College,

I recently received your DVD regarding your college and I wanted to share with you how professional and informative it was. I really enjoyed hearing the student’s feedback. They looked like strong, healthy minded individuals. From their own attestation, this has a lot to do with your institution.

From a community and business standpoint, I was very surprised and impressed on how many who were in leadership positions endorse and support your establishment. It was very impressive.

However, my very favorite was hearing from the parents. Wow, that was moving. You could see on every single parents face the love for their children as well as the genuine thanks and appreciation for what the college has done for them. In every parent’s story, there was that sign of such relief and confidence that they were not going to have to worry about their child anymore, that they had accomplished what all parents want for their children, and that is the knowledge that they will be able to take care of themselves. That is what being a parent is all about, helping that individual to prepare for life. It’s not that your job as a parent is ever done, but knowing that your child can take care of himself takes a huge weight off of your shoulders and changes the game completely. As a parent, you are now coasting and reaping the benefits of all of your hard work. Looks like these parents have accomplished that.

Kudos to you Hubbard College!

With Love,

Bridgette Wechsler

A Mother’s Perspective

Mothers perspectiveWhen my children were small, they all were tested as being extremely bright. I wanted to give them the best education and enrolled them in private school. My oldest son, John, did well in school initially, but over the years I noticed a deterioration in his grades and interest in learning as he got into middle school and high school.

After graduating high school and in spite of his grades and interest level, he enrolled in a major university. During his first semester it became very clear to me that something needed to be done. The interest level was not there and he seemed to spend more time with social activities than getting the education he needed to make it in life. He was definitely following the path so many freshman students take to dropping out of school, having no goals and not having any ability to survive successfully in this world. As a mother, I was concerned about his future.

Fortunately a friend told me about the Hubbard College of Administration. They said that the school focused on “results” and that the students had to show those results in a real-life situation before they could “pass” any class. He said that the students were kept interested because of the fact that they were not just studying theories but seeing how to use what they learn in real life. I decided to recommend the school to my son. After he looked at the program, he decided to apply and was accepted. He moved to Los Angeles and started the program. To my surprise, within a month I could see an immediate difference, mainly because he was calling me to tell me about what he had achieved—how he was apprenticing in corporations and getting results. I could see his pride and could see that he was changing. Over time while he was getting his degree, he became more and more certain about his ability to do whatever he wanted in life! I can confidently say that while on the program he completely turned his life around. The curriculum, format of study, and staff at Hubbard College ensured that he would not only graduate but get the leadership skills and executive ability that he could apply to any career and to have the successful life that I always dreamed he would.

Now that he has graduated with his degree, I am very proud. As someone with a business degree, I am extremely impressed with John’s knowledge of what it takes to make a successful business. He is married, has a great job he likes and is working on his first business venture. This is while working on higher education at Hubbard College. He also has been a tremendous help to my husband’s dental practice. I can’t tell you how happy that makes us feel and how far he has come from the boy who hated school!

We are so impressed with Hubbard College, our younger son and daughter are both attending and having similar results. Thank you so much for making education what it should be!

Yours faithfully,

Carol Moore,
