Quotes

"Being a tutor has convinced me that I want to devote as much time as I can to being an educator as well as being a physician. There's a limited number of lives I could save in my own lifespan, but if I get to teach students how to take care of people, I feel like that perpetuates my ability to help others far beyond what I could do with my own two hands" Luckoski said
"Whether the hiring manager is an alum or the hiring company is their former employer, your computer science professors are more hip to the IT job scene than you think" Vigna says
