Taking His Career to the next

edwin's story

uw continuum college teams up with campus partners to offer fee-based graduate degrees, many of which are designed for working professionals like Edwin Quezada, who jump-started his career with a master's degree.

Edwin Quezada emigrated from Guatemala for better career opportunities in the United States — but working as a sales clerk at a large home improvement store wasn't part of the plan. 

"I was so frustrated working there because I realized that I could do a lot to improve the way things were done," he said. 

But Edwin didn't have the knowledge or the credential required to land the job he really wanted. 

Things changed when Edwin enrolled in the online Master of Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics. Before even finishing his degree, he landed a position as warehouse and procurement manager for a solar energy contractor, where he's overhauled the inventory systems and implemented new processes. 

"The scenario has changed completely," Edwin said. "I know I'm on the right track in my career after getting my degree. It was definitely worth it."
