Jim Tuell – Student Highlight

Jim Tuell
Jim Tuell is a student in the Business Administration program at West Virginia Junior College. Before attending WVJC, Jim attended a different college and worked in the landscaping business. After a while, he decided that between school and traveling for work, the particular school he was attending was not the best fit for him. He chose to come to WVJC because he wanted to find a school that was closer and  that had better program options for him. He said that traditional college was taking way to long.

When asked why he chose the business program, he said “I’ve always liked small local business and I knew going into business administration could potentially help me run my own business someday!” He said his favorite part of WVJC are the students and staff. “The students and staff are much friendlier and more helpful that anywhere else I have ever been. Also, everything is clearly planned out so I can understand it. Human Resource Management is my favorite class because I am able to use workplace skills I already have and apply them to my studies.”

Jim’s idea of the perfect day is made up of coffee, pancakes, watching the office, napping and watching the Red Sox, in whatever order!

After graduation, Jim would like to be working in HR or working in sales. He is also interested in working with a nonprofit organization of some kind.
