How does the company support your career growth?

The career growth support I’ve received from my manager and AvantStay have been incredible. I’ve moved from an Operations Associate to Program Manager in less than 1.5 years and am working towards my PMP certification through company sponsorship. It’s rewarding to feel recognized for the impact I’ve made and have the potential of making here.

AvantStay has shaped my career, I started interning for them my senior year of college, and eventually became a financial analyst working full time.
