Graduate Pays It Forward By Training and Hiring Other Students

Having graduated from the ANU Lynchburg Campus himself, Mark Lindy knows exactly what ANU students and graduates have to offer. He has been the owner and CEO of Digital One, a full-service information technology enterprise in Lynchburg, Virginia, focusing on desktop support, networking, troubleshooting, and computer repair, since 2009. Through the years, his company has served as an externship site for IT students to receive real-world training to supplement their classroom education. He has hired a number of ANU graduates, as well, for positions such as, field engineers, senior network administrators, and office coordinators.

Because of their dedication to providing externship and employment opportunities to ANU students and graduates, Digital One was recently presented with the ANU Distinguished Community Employer Award.

“When I have a position to fill in my company, I go to ANU first.”

“When I have a position to fill in my company, I go to ANU first,” stated Mark. “I know first-hand that they will come prepared with the knowledge and skill-level needed to excel from day one.” Mark, who also serves on the campus’s advisory board, revealed that he looks for job candidates who possess integrity, honesty, good communication skills, and resourcefulness, and the ANU students and graduates he has worked with fit that bill. “The graduates of ANU exemplify workplace excellence and are a shining example of how all college graduates should perform in the workplace,” he added.
