Zack from Chicago, IL

Studying for a career in IT! A laptop will help me get a job with a living wage.

I'm ready for a better-paying career in Information Technology. I just need a basic laptop to complete my program and get a job!


I am a client at Center For Changing Lives that is enrolled in CompTIA A+ class, A+ is an entry level certification that will allow me to enter the IT field. I learned very quickly that I will need a personal computer to able to successfully complete this course because it's very internet & programming heavy.

My goals are to complete the class and do my absolute best, so that I can get a job as a help desk specialist or in internet security.

I need a good laptop that is capable to suit my everyday class needs. This will also help because I will be able to more fully study outside of class.

Meeting this need will help me because it will get me over the hump of not having the latest technology at my fingertips. Most importantly anyone who wants to enter the IT filed needs a computer.

I have worked with Tony Sanders as his Employment Coach since January of this year. Tony has been a participant in our A+ certification class, which will allow him to get an entry level credential and begin working in the IT field. He is one of the most dedicated students in the class. IT has always been a passion of Tony's and after he is certified he will be able to enter the IT field in an official capacity! Obtaining a laptop would ensure that Tony would be able to study more effectively and outside of class.
