At my previous job I handled branding and marketing projects for a small company. As a senior in High School I had no credentials that made me fit for that job… but I did have an internship experience!
I can’t stress enough how important it is for striving students to apply themselves in internships/apprenticeships/mentorships before entering the work force. Not only do students gain great experiences and knowledge but they also gain credentials that stand out to employers that seek younger employees.
If I hadn’t applied myself I wouldn’t have had the incredible opportunity to have a corporate job at the age of 17. I’m lucky to be enrolled at iMADdu where I am given the chance to grow even more as a future entrepreneur. I’m not doing clerical work, but instead am truly applying and challenging myself in different aspects of the business world.
Programs such as iMADdu and other mentorships have become so essential that they’re now a requirement for many undergraduate and graduate majors. So why students shouldn’t make a difference in their lives and start applying?
