Terrance Cummings, SVP of Student Services at Guild, interviewed 4 frontline workers from Guild Employer Partner organizations. Panelists included Daniella Malavé – Field Recruiting Analyst with Chipotle Mexican Grill, Louis Dawson II – Change Analyst with Discover, Peyton Duke – Certified Phlebotomy Technician at UCHealth, and Nicholas Marshall – Driver at WM (Waste Management).
Hear firsthand their compelling stories about being a working adult – balancing job demands along with education and the challenges and opportunities that came along the way. Learn why support from their employer and from Guild coaches has helped or continues to encourage them to persist, and how career pathways implemented at their organization gave them a sightline for growth.
Panelists also highlight the “halo effect” of embarking on an educational and career journey, citing that their enrollment in company sponsored, tuition free education programs with Guild encouraged fellow employees to dive in too. These inspiring stories centered around one common theme – these adult workers realized they didn’t have to leave their companies in order to grow.
