Having an intern in our office was a great experience. We got extra support of course, but it was also great to have someone with a younger, fresh perspective on what we do, who also asked us some great questions as he learned the job. We're an insurance agency, not the type of career most young people even think they might be interested in, so this was a great way to introduce him to a new potential career path.
The team at Cycle-Re-Cycle appreciated the opportunity to work with the staff at JMG WorkForce Pathways in providing a teen with real life work experience, in our shop repairing bikes. The young person had an interest in bikes and so gaining knowledge in a job setting gave him a glimpse of a pathway from school to work. The JMG specialist I worked with did a great job explaining the program to our team and problem solving when questions came up. We look forward to hosting additional teens in the future.
