Who am I?

My name is Dusten Miller. I’m currently a part time student at the University of Akron and a full time employee at FirstEnergy. I am focusing on an MBA and minor in Economics. Due to working full time at FirstEnergy, I am not able to participate in as many campus activities as much as I would like to. Most of my focus is contributed to donations and volunteering for United Way through FirstEnergy.

What are my educational and career paths?

After graduating high school, I was unsure of my educational objective and career objective. I arrived at the University taking general courses as advised, but had no idea the direction I was headed. I wanted to explore what each major offered for career paths, financial stability, and happiness. I did not want to make the mistake of regretting my “young decision making” or “having constant career change”. At this point I decided it was time to take a break to determine a decision that affected the rest of my life. When I made the decision not to be in school, another decision was made at that exact moment. My parents forced me to find a job.
A few months later I was working for FirstEnergy in Customer Services and Treasury. After a year things were beginning to fall in place. I was offered continuous education in form of tuition reimbursement for; good grades and studying the FirstEnergy field of scope. I was getting free education, direction of career paths, and an idea of salaries and job descriptions. With everything falling in place I decided to major in Business Administration and minor in Economics.

What are my career objectives?

My career objectives are to graduate with an MBA and minor in Economics from the University of Akron. Furthermore, work my way up the FirstEnergy corporate ladder, continue my education, and eventually open my own work out facility. Unlike many students, my career and education are on the same path and have inspired each other in creating my dreams.
