“Communication skills and proper office etiquette were the professional development techniques I learned in Berea’s Work Program that helped me to get the job.” Judging by the Jackson’s success after graduation, she not only got the job, but knows how to get the job done well.

In her current post, Ms. Jackson applies the lessons she learned in Berea’s work program to connect with and empower her community. Enchanta considers her work as a teller at Student Accounts, as an office assistant at the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, and as a peer mentor at the Black Cultural Center as most influential to her career. These positions taught her professionalism, peer interaction and the importance of attention to detail, skills Enchanta says gave her a distinct advantage when entering the professional world.
