Ever since she could remember, Diane wanted to work in legal field.
Of course, things don’t always go as planned. Diane had spent her career thus far working in the restaurant industry. After 10 years, in an industry she wasn’t in love with, Diane decided to make the big change and finally pursue her dream.
She knew it was time to get back on track, get her degree and starting working on her career. She enrolled in Bryant & Stratton College in Albany and started to work toward her paralegal degree.
Brian taught the majority of Diane’s legal courses her first semester.
Brian was so impressed with Diane’s determination and work ethic from the get-go that he hired her to do a work study with him. This was especially helpful to Diane who feared that her lack of office experience and knowledge would hinder her job search capabilities. She spent a lot of her time collaborating on projects with Brian and in no time she was a pro at filing paperwork, understanding documentation, and discussing the legal system.
Diane didn’t just work for Brian and sit through his classes - he became her mentor. She felt so lucky to have met such an influential instructor, especially one that was in the field she wanted to be in. She asked Brian all sorts of questions and for valuable pointers.
