Tre Malik, a 2016 graduate of North Tech’s Cisco Networking Academy, has some serious goals. While other recent high school grads are still determining their major, this young man is designing a future that will ensure he earns a six-figure salary by the time he is 25…and he’s already halfway there.
In today’s economic climate, it is not always easy for graduating seniors in high school or college to find work in their desired field. Often, graduation day is a celebration that is quickly followed by a period of job hunting or working in an area outside one’s expertise. But in a time when few students are able to go straight from graduation to work, one recent graduate was able to do even better than that—starting work in his field just prior to his graduation.
