Interns Learning Firsthand About Work

blog.interns_2016

This summer 28 rising seniors are working what is, for most, their first job, while earning school credit for Work Experience. And beyond expanding their skills and preparation for the real world, they are also having a great time! Interns are placed based on their career interests, and this summer there are students at hospitals, a law office, a youth center, a senior center, a fashion boutique, a real estate company, an insurance company, a chamber of commerce, a restaurant, a cupcake bakery, a fitness center…and of course at design companies (our academy career path)! Interns also attend the weekly seminar class at school where each session focuses on transferrable skills such as stress management, time management, job satisfaction, etc. Two weeks down, four to go, so “follow” this newsblog for more stories about our terrific group of young people and their summer journeys…
