These past few months have been hard for many and we’re grateful to have such wonderful employees who have weathered this storm with us.

To show our appreciation, we bought custom umbrellas and rain jackets for our entire internal office! With all the rain we’ve been having lately, this rainwear came just in time!

The Joy of Switching Careers

While some people seem to know their dream job from birth, others dabble in a variety of careers before finding true bliss. No matter your age, starting a new career is an exciting change and should be approached as such! It’s the chance to challenge yourself to expand your knowledge and excel at new projects. It’s the opportunity to tap into your skillset and find your perfect fit.

When you are settled into your new career there’s something refreshing about knowing you pushed past the fear and worry and created a new life for yourself.

If you needed a sign to take the risk, this is it! At Astyra, we support career changes by offering varying levels of employment from entry level to senior level. If you’re interested in starting over now, apply for a position on our website.

Ken Speaks To FBLA

Ken speaking live to FBLA
Astyra co-founder, Ken Ampy, shared with thousands of people his thoughts on having a bold vision, stepping into greatness and surrounding yourself with good company.
The Midlothian High School chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) frequently invites Ken to speak to their group. Although this year was no exception, the request was slightly different. 
When the head of FBLA for the entire state of Virginia was looking to hold a virtual meeting, Mrs. Mullins of Midlothian High School called on her favorite speaker once again. Ken spoke at the virtual meeting for a group of FBLA’ers which was recorded then distributed to all of the FBLA chapters across the state.

Our very own contractor, Andy Parker, is being featured in the Martinsville Bulletin for his dedication to slowing the spread of COVID-19!
Andy was hired on with us in early July as a Contact Tracer and is quickly moving towards becoming a Case Investigator as a reward for his great work. He spends most of his work days contacting those who may be at risk of contracting COVID-19 and offers advice on quarantining.
We’re proud to have a dedicated team of individuals who are getting noticed locally!
