Upon graduating from Bay State College many of our students have moved on to successful careers. Here a few of our success stories.

Sarah Carmody

Sarah Carmody, '10

Medical Assistant
Tristan Medical Center

“People come in with serious pain, and as Medical Assistant you’re in charge of knowing their complete medical history. It’s not just taking height and weight like some people think. It’s knowing the patient, being their advocate, and doing a bit of hand-holding until recovery. Knowing I've helped someone is the best, most rewarding part of the job.”

Bill Zinkowski

Bill Zinkowski, '13

Inbound Coordinator

There is so much more to the study of fashion than an extended trip to the mall. Fashion is a multi-billion dollar industry that is beyond borders. The best you can do is be ready and arm yourself with as much knowledge and experience as possible. Bay State College provided me with both.

I’ve really taken so much knowledge from my classes at Bay State and applied it to my day to day work. When I first started here, it was the information from classes like ‘Introduction to Healthcare’ that were helpful, but now that I’m conversing with these healthcare professionals every day, I’m grateful for classes like ‘Pharmacology’; something I never thought I would say.

I've gained so many contacts over the years from Bay State College through other graduates and faculty. My first job in fashion merchandising was landed within two months of graduation. I felt it was very beneficial for me to go to school adjacent to Boston's fashion center, and to be immersed in the culture of my chosen field.
