10 Jan Marty – Vegas PBS
When Marty first moved to Las Vegas from California, he worked in the shipping and receiving department for a casino, but marketing was a long-held career goal. When his employer offered scholarships for Vegas PBS online courses, Marty took the chance and enrolled in an in-depth marketing class. The educational foundation he built enabled him to land a marketing position at the casino. Transferring from the warehouse to the marketing office gave Marty a meaningful salary increase and the ability to become a first-time home buyer.
