Jerylle Guanso is an Arizona State University graduate who earned a degree in biological sciences this spring and worked at Education at Work during all four years of her college career.

After learning about EAW from a friend, Jerylle applied to her first job in college.

At EAW, she found a network of peers which allowed her to develop friendships and professional relationships.

“This is the first job I’ve had working with a lot of other co-workers,” Jerylle says. “At other jobs, I’ve worked with small groups, maybe four or five people, and they’re all who I’d talk to. Now, with EAW, I have a lot more people to interact with and people in the same branch as me.”

Jerylle says she learned networking skills, built her confidence and became adaptive to an evolving work environment while at EAW.

Jerylle earned more than $10,000 in tuition assistance and graduated debt free.

She plans to pursue a career in the medical field and says that the tuition assistance she received from EAW is a huge financial relief and will allow her to achieve her career goals. Jerylle's dream job is to become a physician’s assistant. She enrolled in a physician’s assistance program - a career that she was inspired to pursue after watching her mother gain her degree to become a nurse practitioner.
