Sharon’s Success Story

WDBSCW

Former journalist transitions back to office career.  

Sharon was a journalist but had to leave the industry when print journalism began to decline. In 1995 she found a job in the food service industry and in 2008 she moved to Boston Store. When Boston Store closed, Sharon decided it was time for a career shift.

Not ready for retirement, Sharon wanted to find a career where she could use both her writing and customer service skills. She connected with the WorkSmart Network for services and tuition assistance to complete the Microsoft Core Administrative Professional Associate Program. While in college, she worked a part-time student position that allowed her to build her office work experience.

Sharon was offered an assistant position with Basham Management. She is currently working part-time and remotely due to COVID-19.
