Meet Alana Bowman!
HR Professional Certificate Graduate

"The HR Professional Certificate Program made me not only more confident in my ability to work with others, but also more confident in myself… I also met some amazing people through the course that I keep in touch with to this day!”


Alana Bowman Graduated from the Continuing Education Department’s Human Resources Professional Certificate Program at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) in December of 2015. She enjoyed her time at CCSU, and her favorite quality of the course was the patient and knowledgeable instructors of the program. Ms. Bowman also admired the smaller class size, as it allowed her to get the one-on-one attention that she needed to strive.


Ms. Bowman chose the HR program because she wanted to start a career where she could make a difference. She wanted to people to know they could feel comfortable coming to talk to her about anything related to both their business and personal lives, and that she would be able to handle it in a professional manner. She currently works for a small civil engineering and land surveying company, and the course helped her to become an HR assistant instead of a general Administrative Assistant. Ms. Bowman thanks CCSU for providing her with the knowledge she needed to start a rewarding career in the HR field, and she has transferred the skills she learned to both her professional and personal life.
