Lizzy Wolking, Northern Kentucky University
Lizzy Wolking is a senior at Northern Kentucky University completing a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. When she is not studying or dedicating time at her job, Lizzy can be found volunteering with children through reading programs around the Greater Cincinnati area. Lizzy first started at Education at Work in
July of 2014 beginning first as a call center agent, then gained the position of a student recruiter, and was then promoted to her current position as a financial services associate for our financial services client.
Lizzy’s career goal post-college is to work with Pre-K children at a daycare or elementary school. Lizzy decided to apply at EAW because she pays for college herself. Although she was given a scholarship to her university, about half of her tuition was not covered. By working for Education at Work she is able to pay off college through our tuition assistance program, and will graduate debt-free. Upon working for our company, Lizzy admired the work ethic and attitude of our employees. She has built many friendships with her supervisors. Lizzy truly enjoys our company culture and positive, student-centered environment.
So far Lizzy’s experiences here have prepared her for the real world by advancing her communication and professional skills. The confidence and financial support of Lizzy’s experience here has set her on a path to success in any field she chooses. In fact, Lizzy has enjoyed working with our financial service client so much so that she is considering a full-time post-graduate position with the company! Students like her are the reason we offer experiential learning in the fields of study that are most applicable to our students.
Lizzy is a remarkable student who has set the tone for success and prosperity in the mission and values of our company. She exemplifies confidence and passion in her work and is a great role model to other students in our program. We are so fortunate to have Lizzy on our team!
