 There are any number of reasons why people are heading back into the job market today. Some are looking to rebound after a layoff, while
 others simply aren’t enjoying their current careers and are looking for a change. BMCC has created a series of 2 hour workshops to help
 you figure out new career options and map out a winning job search plan. The sessions can be taken as often as you would like, and in any
 sequence. However, we do suggest that you begin with the workshop entitled “What’s My Perfect Job?” since knowing what will make
 you happy in your work is where successful careers always begin!

                                                       Slackers	beware:	if	you’re	looking	for	a	teacher	who	will	grade	you	easily,	look	the	other	way	when	
                                                       you	cut	corners,	or	let	you	coast	through	your	coursework,	Professor	Sung	Gwak	is	not	for	you.	    	
                                                       An	Associate	Professor	at	BMCC	for	over	24	years,	Professor	Gwak	will	be	the	first	person	to	tell	
                                                       you	that	she	is	a	tough	teacher	who	demands	a	lot	from	her	students.		Like	any	great	teacher	
                                                       though,	Professor	Gwak	is	not	tough	merely	for	toughness’	sake.		She	holds	her	students	to	high	
                                                       standards	in	order	to	prepare	them	for	the	high	stakes	of	the	medical	profession,	where	errors	
                                                       can	be	costly	and	failure	is	never	an	option:	“When	you	are	dealing	with	the	health	and	welfare	
                                                       of	a	human	being,	there	is	no	room	for	mistakes.”
                                                       Professor	Gwak	began	her	career	as	a	surgical	intensive	care	nurse	in	her	native	South	Korea,	
                                                       but	that	would	prove	to	be	only	the	beginning	of	her	rich	tenure	in	the	medical	field;	her	resume	
                                                       also	includes	work	as	a	medical-surgical	and	clinical	care	nurse	at	the	University	of	Missouri	
                                                       Medical	Center	(Columbia,	Missouri)	and	as	a	quality	assurance	consultant	at	Harlem	Hospital	
                                                       (New	York,	NY).		For	Professor	Gwak,	making	the	transition	to	teaching	was	a	natural	next	step	in	
                                                       her	career:	“Teaching	is	a	highly	respected	occupation	in	South	Korea,	and	I	always	saw	myself	
                                                       as	a	teacher.”
                                                       At	BMCC,	Professor	Gwak	sees	highly	motivated	students	looking	to	acquire	the	certifications	
                                                       they	need	to	thrive	in	the	healthcare	sector.		Her	greatest	joy	as	a	teacher	comes	when	she	is	
                                                       able	to	see	the	fruits	of	her	labors,	“when	former	students	return	years	later	to	express	their	
                                                       gratitude	and	fill	me	in	on	what	they	are	doing	in	the	medical	world.”		Above	all,	Professor	Gwak	
                                                       understands	that	her	students’	learning	is	directly	connected	to	the	safety	and	well-being	of	their	
                                                       future	patients:	“I	have	a	dual	role	as	a	teacher—to	serve	the	students,	and	to	serve	the	public.”

 Faculty profile Abate kassa
 Mr.	Kassa	was	“professionally	born”	on	May	26,	1954	in	the	purchasing	and	supply	management	
 department	of	Ethiopian	Airlines,	and	he	has	never	looked	back	since:	“I	found	the	field	very	exciting,	
 very	interesting.”		Mr.	Kassa’s	passion	for	his	work	led	him	to	make	valuable	contributions	to	the	
 growth	of	his	company.		In	the	1972,	he	introduced	value	analysis	and	value-engineering	to	Ethiopian	
 Airlines—money-saving	tools	he	had	discovered	independently	through	research	and	attending	sup-
 ply	management	conferences.		
 After	nearly	two	decades	at	the	airline,	Mr.	Kassa	felt	ready	to	go	into	business	for	himself,	and	in	
 1973	he	established	AOK	Consulting	&	Education.		A	consultant	and	an	educator,	Mr.	Kassa	creates	
 organic	change	in	companies	by	teaching	their	personnel	how	to	wield	the	“power	of	purchasing”	in	
 ways	that	benefit,	rather	than	compromise,	their	bottom-line.		“At	the	end	of	the	day,	purchasing	is	
 really	about	saving,	not	spending,”	he	advises.		Through	his	consultancy	group,	Mr.	Kassa	has	worked	
 with	a	wide	range	of	esteemed	clientele,	including	the	United	Nations’	International	Trade	Centre	and	
 the	Pacific	Islands	Forum.
 For	Mr.	Kassa,	strategic	purchasing	and	supply	management	skills	have	become	increasingly	valuable	
 against	the	backdrop	of	today’s	recession:	“in	these	economically	troubling	times,	people	are	expected	
 to	‘do	more	with	less,’	and	doing	more	with	less	is	a	major	function	of	value	analysis.”		As	a	teacher,	
 Mr.	Kassa	combines	this	spirited	sense	of	purpose	with	a	lifetime’s	worth	of	knowledge	and	experience	
 to	prepare	his	students	for	their	future	careers.		Yet	Mr.	Kassa	offers	his	students	more	than	just	an	
 avenue	towards	getting	a	first	job.		Instead,	he	gives	them	the	tools	for	long-term	growth:		“I	tell	my	
 students:	‘your	security	is	not	in	your	current	job,	but	in	your	profession.’”		Through	teaching,	Mr.	Kassa	
 gives	his	students	that	security.

certification agencies, and exchange and scholarship
programs use TOEFL scores to evaluate the English
proficiency of people for whom English is not their
native language.
