Ajay’s education from Gateway Technical College increased his earning power by more than a third with room for advancement in his future.
"Gateway prepared me well for my job – I haven’t been faced with anything yet that I am unable to do," says Ajay. "I really do think this job is recession proof. Business must have computers to work, and they depend on programmers to work every day."
Ajay was introduced to Gateway when he earned his GED at the college. He left high school at age 16 to work full-time to support his son. He always knew he wanted to return and earn a degree and Gateway provided this and more.
"Having the opportunity to connect with Gateway through my GED made me believe in myself – that I could return to earn my degree."
