It's not enough to send people a computer and tell them the help they need is online. Computers don't teach - people teach. That's what makes Mactech different from many of its imitators. That's why I like working here.

Over the years, I have facilitated the acceptance process and financing arrangements for thousands of our students. When I tell an applicant they are ready to begin their course and they tell me that I "made their day" with this news, I tell them that it makes "my day" to hear how excited they are about their education and express how the course will make a significant difference in their lives. The most rewarding part of my job is in knowing that I have helped someone achieve their goal of a higher education, each and every day.

Director of Student Finance21 years
The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that I've been able to financially counsel a student on how to use all the available resources for affording a higher level of education. Taking out a student loan can be very intimidating, but with guidance and counseling, the experience doesn't always have to be stressful. I have had the pleasure of counseling all age groups and it is so rewarding to know that I have played a part in a person's decision to pursue a dream and to give them the resources to be successful in achieving that dream. Undoubtedly, the people I work with everyday make me happy that I am part of this professional family and to be part of a college that offers the best distance educational programs around.

Investing in your post secondary education is one of the most important decisions you can make. As a part of the finance team, I feel rewarded when I can provide borrowing and repayment options to our students. Having a student loan myself, I didn't feel that I had the information I needed to make the wisest decisions. I want to ensure that our students have all the resources & options available to make a good investment in their future.
