Student Profile: Tara Kelly

Student Profile: Tara Kelly

After a long gap, we have another student profile! Today, we feature Tara Kelly.

-What is your program, and where did you go to high school?

My program is IT-Web and Software Development. I went to La Crosse Center High School, class of 2004.

-Favorite instructor?

I have liked all my instructors at Western for different reasons. They’ve all been kind, humble, and dedicated to their students. 

-What do you like about Western?

What I really like about Western is that the program offerings reflect what jobs are available in the current market. It’s also very affordable and they know how to hire good instructors.

-Future plans?

In the future, I’d like to get into some kind of consulting.

-Advice for future students?

Switching careers (which I am doing now) is a really hard process. Try finding something you really like doing sooner rather than later through trial and error. Figure out what kind of lifestyle you want, what kind of person you are, start some side gigs, etc. I had to try a lot of different things on my own before I knew what type of job would be a good fit.

Thank you so much, Tara!
