Franklin University is sort of an extension of me, of course it’s a part of my past and I feel like it's a part of my future.

When I am looking at applicants as an employer, and bringing them into the organization, I’m looking for not only the work history, but their educational background as well. I think just having this education from Franklin has really allowed me to be the successful, professional I am today and without it, I would not be where I am today for sure
