An established web designer with over 12 years of experience, Michael Daniel had a successful career, but was laid off due to the economic downturn.  He applied for lots of jobs, but kept hitting a brick wall because he hadn’t earned a degree.  He decided to go back to school at CFCC.  Michael recently graduated from CFCC with a degree in Computer Information Technology, and received the Student Recognition Award for Vocational/Technical Education in Computer Information Technology.  He recently landed a job he enjoys at All-Spec Industries in Wilmington.

“I had been to school before, but never finished,” Michael says.  “I was well-qualified for many of the jobs to which I applied, but I didn’t have a degree, so I kept getting turned down.   That’s when I knew I had to go back to school, for my family.”
