Student Success Story
Submitted By: Riverside County Office of Education CTE
April was 35 years old and was dissatisfied in her job. She wanted to work in a setting where she could feel a sense of contribution and helping others. After some research, she decided her goal was to work with patients in a physician’s office as an office administrator.
April came to Riverside School of Career Education to take classes in Medical Billing and Coding and Front Office Management. She was placed into an internship with a local physician’s office, where she was able to practice the skills she’d learned in class.
April made a great impression and received a job offer from her internship employer at the end of the internship. April offers this advice to others: “If you feel it in your heart to change careers, do not hesitate. Just go for it. Helping others was my motivation, but it led me to further my education. In my new job, I feel appreciated and fulfilled.”
