Justin Behr
Justin Behr | Machinist at Innovative Machine Specialists
Machine Tool Technician Program, May 2003
“The small class size and any amount of one-on-one attention needed was optimal. My instructor would help with anything he could, whether it was for his class or not.”

Cheyenne Burnico
Cheyenne Burnico | Product Specialist at Renaissance
Administrative Professional Program, May 2017
“The small class sizes allow ample time for instructors to spend individual time with you if necessary. I loved that the majority of classes were available to me online, and they all held similar expectations. This allowed me to build and maintain a routine. Additionally, I recall many of the lessons throughout this program that directly apply to my position; this gives me an advantage to know how to navigate and utilize these tools to their full capacity.”

Jennifer Buss
Jennifer Buss | Support Specialist–Student at Skyward
Business Management Program, May 2017
"My instructor actually told our class about the internship opportunity at Skyward during class and suggested that I apply for it. Employment Strategies had us set up a mock interview with a company we would like to work for as a way to practice interviewing, and also to network. I feel if I needed help finding a job now, I could contact any of my instructors and they could help point me in the right direction."

Adam Clussman
Adam Clussman | Software Engineer at Skyward
IT Software Developer Program, May 2017
“I was actually hired as an intern at Skyward during my last semester. Many companies go directly to Mid-State for new hires, so as a result, there is a good chance that you can get a jump-start on your career simply by attending Mid-State. You also have a relaxed environment to learn in, which is huge for me.”

Nick Dassow
Nick Dassow | Mechanic at Lamers Bus Lines
Diesel & Heavy Equipment Technician Program, May 2011
“I felt I was given enough instruction on what to expect in the field to do an adequate and safe job for my employer. My instructor made sure that all of his students paid close attention to detail. Because he was also once a technician in the field, he brought his own real-world experiences to the classroom.”

A.J. Grusczynski
A.J. Grusczynski | System Analyst at Delta Dental of Wisconsin
IT Software Developer Program, May 2012
“My education has given me a solid foundation for an exciting career in information technology. Attending Mid-State played a significant role in receiving the internship that led to my job at Delta Dental of Wisconsin.”

Alivia Jagielo
Alivia Jagielo | Executive Assistant II at Renaissance
Administrative Professional Program, May 2011
“With Mid-State’s partnership with local high schools, I was able to complete core curriculum credits through class offerings at SPASH prior to enrollment at Mid-State. This allowed me to focus on the classes specific to my program, and it was also a tuition saver!”

Josh Kumm | Machinist at Innovative Machine Specialists

Shane Salisbury
Shane Salisbury | Software Engineer at Skyward
IT Software Developer Program, May 2017
“I was able to work as an intern with Skyward before graduation and was hired full-time immediately following graduation. Realistically, I probably saved between $10,000-20,000 by attending Mid-State instead of a four-year university!”

Nicole Trickle
Nicole Trickle | Financial Accountant II at Renaissance
Accounting Program, May 2002
“I was able to work as an intern with Skyward before graduation and was hired full-time immediately following graduation. Realistically, I probably saved between $10,000-20,000 by attending Mid-State instead of a four-year university!”

“I’ve had the opportunity to apply my education to real-world situations while attending classes. I work full time and attend school ¾ time (attending evening classes). On numerous occasions, I have been able to take what I was learning in class and apply it into my current role. Pairing my education with my role at Roehl has given me the opportunity to grow and advance in the workforce.”

Brian Wood
Brian Wood | Process Controls Engineer at ESE, Inc.
Industrial Automation & Controls Engineering Technology, December 2016
“I chose to attend Mid-State because I had been working in fast food and felt like I had the potential to do more. Within 6 months of graduating, I was working as a process controls engineer and I would say I made the right decision. My instructor had a great blend of professional experience and teaching expertise. A large part of the success of his program was due to the connections he had made in the industry and his ability to leverage them into work and internship opportunities for his students.”

Justin Zbleski
Justin Zbleski | Millwright Apprentice at Verso
Industrial Mechanical Technician Program, December 2016
“I was informed of an internship opportunity at the Verso mill during my third semester in the program. I was hired and worked throughout the summer before my fourth and final semester. Just before graduation, I was contacted by Verso about an opening they had becoming available, and hired on the spot.”
