Senior accountant, American Home Mortgage Servicing
“My Mortgage Banking studies at North Lake College were paid for by my employer. They were the ones who suggested that I go through the program there, which shows that they think a lot of it.
“My experience was really good; I learned a lot about different types of loans, underwriting and loan origination. The program gave us a broad overview from the get-go. I didn’t have any previous experience in mortgage banking at all, so it really helped me to prepare for changing jobs into the industry.
“I like that my job is different every day and there are different fires to it out. Working with millions of dollars is a big challenge, but it’s also very rewarding.”
