Touro College Graduate School of Technology (GST) is one of New York’s premier graduate schools, offering cutting-edge programs that prepare students to become tomorrow’s technology leaders. Loucas Karipis, who graduated in 2014 with a master’s degree in Data Communications, is already on his way to becoming one of those leaders.
The career services department at Touro helped Loucas learn how to restructure his resume to maximize his potential. Thanks to their video recording services, Loucas was also able to enhance his interviewing skills by sticking to his strengths and improving his weaknesses. Eventually, the same career services department notified Loucas of opportunities in the field, including his new job as a Tier II Support Engineer at KJ Technology Consulting. The new position feels like a dream come true for Loucas, who knew that his time at Touro would eventually land him a desirable job in the technology industry with lots of hands-on experience.
Of course, the path through graduate school is not for the faint of heart. A master’s degree requires dedication, hard work, and plenty of sacrifices. Loucas is an international student from Cyprus who had to leave his friends, family, and girlfriend to pursue the career of his dreams.
But Loucas feels vindicated for his decision to pursue a Master’s degree at Touro. “[New York] is the city of opportunities, and the sacrifices I made were totally worth it,” explains Loucas. Touro’s student body feels uniquely like a big family, which helped Loucas fit in comfortably with the other students.
Thanks to the friendly students, Loucas was able to focus his attention on his studies. His hard work and passion for learning eventually earned him the honor of Valedictorian at graduation. Loucas also had the pleasure of being the Touro College GST speaker at the Lincoln Center graduation ceremony. “My advice to my fellow graduate students is this: never give up, believe in yourselves, work hard, and you will find what you are looking for,” says Loucas.
