Success Story: Ashley - Administrative Assistant

Ashley is a 2014 Virginia College Graduate

Ashley was stuck making coffee in an office while her colleagues with business degrees advanced. She was challenged by a caring boss to enroll in college — then discovered that the Virginia College online business program was her best option.

“I worked full time, so I just didn't have the ability to go to a brick and mortar college,” she says.

The online program curriculum gave Ashley the chance to peek into different elements of the business world. And contrary to what some may expect from an online education, her online instructors were available, responsive, and caring.

After graduation, Ashley got what she calls “the biggest raise of her life”, and she started getting noticed by recruiters on LinkedIn.

“My opportunity horizon is a lot bigger,” she says. “I mean, it's opened up right before my eyes.”
