“I had recently received my GIS degree but wasn’t satisfied with where it was taking me, so I enrolled in Dunwoody’s surveying program. The hands-on learning was great, and when I started my summer internship and current job I was able to jump right in. I had the interview for my current position before I had even finished classes.”
