Before Restaurant Service
After Technology Solutions Coordinator at Equal Rights Center
In the past, Brandon had held technology roles and started studying IT in college. But he never finished his degree and companies weren’t responding to his past experience.
He ended up working in restaurant service and was consistently receiving strong praise for his work — but the field had limited opportunities for advancement.
Through Merit America’s IT Support Learning Program, Brandon refreshed his tech acumen and leveraged the program's resources to master interviewing, resume, and cover letter skills.
In less than a month after the program ended, Brandon found a full-time tech role in a company that he believes in.
