The story around how Jeremiah ended up at AIS is quite interesting. Jeremiah was having lunch with his father (also a business mentor) at a Chinese restaurant. They were discussing Jeremiah's career future. Even with the mention of not being as successful as he wanted, Jeremiah was approached by someone. He approached Jeremiah, handing him his business card, and simply stating "If you are looking for a new opportunity, call me." Come to find out this was the COO and General Manager of AIS, Jeremiah's future boss. 

What was in it for Jeremiah?

Jeremiah realized he could do much more when he was invested in the company and its culture and believed in the products and services being delivered. He was given carte blanche in regards to his role after he understood the vision and mission of the company and how this role was a part of it. Jeremiah was really able to exercise his critical and strategic thinking to deliver awesome results.

Unfortunately, due to the company's bankruptcy, he was part of an abrupt lay-off. This third, unexpected loss of a job was the straw that broke the camel's back. Jeremiah was determined to develop in-demand skills and become more marketable. A determined, motivated, life-long learner was forged. He decided he was going to go back to college to finish his current in-progress degree, Commercial Music. Even though he wasn't going to use it, he wanted to finish what he started. After that, he would begin working on his second Associate's degree in Business Management.
