Alton Hill: From Graveyard Worker to Graduate

Alton Hill’s enthusiasm is contagious even through the phone as he talks about his transition from high-school-educated worker to a junior network computer engineer at Hakott, Inc. in California. Working another grave shift at a dead-end job on New Year’s Eve in 2011 was the push he needed to change his career path. “I realized I was working so hard, but I had nowhere else to go at that point,” he explains.
