From Floor Associate to Recruiting at Walmart: This is Jarryn's story of career mobility

Stepping into a dream job

Over the course of her 14-year career with Walmart, Jarryn was able to earn a bachelor’s degree in business management and grow into her role as a salaried project analyst. 

 “Getting my diploma in my hand — it felt like I could finally breathe. It means a lot to me because I worked so hard for it.”

Jarryn R., Walmart Project Analyst and Guild Member

“This investment is another way we can support our associates to pursue their passion and purpose while removing the barriers that too often keep adult working learners from obtaining degrees.”1
