10 May HiSET = A Solution for Students Like ShiAnn
When ShiAnn Toporski came to Goodwill’s Career Solutions Center in Jackson, Tenn., she was heading into her senior year after changing schools 12+ times in her young life. She couldn’t imagine starting over again, making new friends and meeting new teachers in yet another new city. She heard online about Goodwill’s HiSET program that would help her complete her high school credits, an important requirement for job seekers. She finished quickly and is already working in a management position in a local hotel. While a high school diploma is preferred by many employers, the HiSET program is a welcome solution for those who have just a few credits to complete and require the credential for military service or a job application.
