Former student makes it to the fourth week of ‘The Apprentice’

Alumnus Clint Robertson said he would do whatever it takes to make it to the end of the third season of NBC’s show “The Apprentice,” according to an NBC video.

Robertson made it to the fourth week of the show so far and will make an appearance on “NBC5 Today” this morning to share his story.

This season of “The Apprentice” focused on a recession-era apprentice 8212; non-celebrity contestants who lost their jobs or had trouble finding jobs compete against each other for a position in the Trump Organization.

According to the show’s website, Robertson worked as a certified public accountant, a real estate attorney and a developer until the economic downturn forced him to sell many of his family’s possessions and live off of credit. He and his family do not have a permanent place to live but go back and forth between a friend’s guesthouse in Weatherford and another friend’s rental house in Post Falls, Idaho.

“There’s tough times right now,” Robertson said. “But there’s still an opportunity for people who want to get up, roll up their sleeves, work hard every day and follow their dreams.”

According to the website, Robertson graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting.
