Minnesota School of Business-St. Cloud Career Services department has announced Mindy Michaelis as the winner of the April Graduate of the Month Award.
Michaelis currently works as a Medical Assistant at Mid-Minnesota Family Medicine Center in St. Cloud. She completed her externship at the clinic and was hired on because she did such a great job.
While she was a student completing her externship, Michaelis knew that it was her time to shine. She looked on her externship like it was her normal day-to-day job. She learned many new things and caught on fast, which impressed the staff.
Michaelis had worked as a Nursing Assistant in the past, but knew she wanted to further her career in health care. As a mother working full-time, she needed to find a college that offered some different options to help her complete her degree. MSB offered her that flexibility.
Her future plans include being successful in her current job as a Medical Assistant. She wants to ensure her clinical skills are proficient, and she can also see herself advancing to office management in the future.
Michaelis has great advice for students. First she says, “always take pride in your work.” She then adds, “You and only you can make your success happen. In order to do that, you need to show people the skills you have to make them want to hire you.”
Michaelis believes that MSB taught her how to prepare herself for the real world.
We are sure that she has a shining future ahead. Congrats, Mindy!
