"Telecommunications will always be here and changing. In the Telecommunication field, WITC's employment rate has been 90 percent or higher for the past 20 years with salaries starting from $24,000 to $44,000. Students employed in the telecommunications industry don't change careers like the national average of seven times. They are taken care of financially, and usually have excellent health and retirement benefits. Compare the salaries of our graduates and the tuition expenses from WITC with the tuition of any four-year college and you'll see why WITC provides the best bang for your buck." Paul Kostner
