Love Your Career: Video Interview with Medical Assisting Student Brandy Carter

All around the world, people are stuck in careers they aren’t passionate about as they go to work every day feeling unfulfilled. At WellSpring School of Allied Health, students gain the skills they need to have a successful and fulfilling career.

According to a Gallup poll, only 34 percent of employees are happy and engaged at work. In addition, a study from iCIMS found that 63 percent of all full-time employees are actively looking for a new job. With such low engagement numbers, it’s no surprise that there’s a high number of people searching for a new career. At WellSpring, students and instructors are all truly passionate about their career fields. 

For Brandy Carter, a medical assisting student at WellSpring, the process of phlebotomy gives her a rush that she can’t find anywhere else. Carter said, “My favorite memory is phlebotomy because it’s a challenge. When I can get that vein and draw that blood, it’s an adrenaline rush.”

The quality education that WellSpring provides prepares students for a good job after graduation. A subsequent poll from Gallup found that only 45 percent of U.S. citizens currently have a good job. A “good job” is defined as working more than 30 hours per week for an employer who provides a regular paycheck. Right now, medical assisting is a good job and is one of the nation’s top career fields. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical assisting is growing at a rate of 23 percent, which is over three times the national average of just seven percent!

WellSpring School of Allied Health makes sure that students are prepared to enter a booming career field. In less than two years, students can earn their degree and sit for three different national certifications. WellSpring medical assisting graduates pass these certification exams, on the first try, over 90 percent of the time and last year, 98% of MA grads landed jobs soon after graduation! In a country with so much opportunity, there’s no reason to stay in a career that isn’t a true passion.
