Katie Klettke is looking to make it big in her hometown of Ripon. She’s a cosmetology student here at Moraine Park, and here’s a little insight into her journey into this career field, in her own words:
Synonyms for partnership include: cooperation, assistance, interest, sharing, community and ownership. At Moraine Park Technical College, we embrace all of these characteristics of partnership with our students. And homeschooled students are no exception and benefit tremendously from partnering with the college.
Our relationship starts before high school, as young students participate in events at Moraine Park designed to educate them and give them hands on opportunities to try out various careers for their future. I am confident that these experiences will lead to more research and learning after the event by the student and family.
Many schools claim to provide real-life experiences, but it is unusual when a class project leads to a job.
Moraine Park’s Associate of Science in Accounting degree provides a career preparation project within Accounting 3. Students create a professional résumé and cover letter and practice interviewing skills based on an actual job posting.
Initially, student Allysa Larsen picked a general accounting position. Eventually, she decided to a select a position that better matched her goals.
