Position: Facilities Management
Employed: March 2019
Congratulations to our student of the month, Briana! Briana is a senior at Wells Community Academy, and although she is very active at her school and has been chosen as a student leader, she was having difficulty finding a job because of her lack of previous job experience. Briana reached out to her career advisor Hester Buell for help finding job openings and showed a lot of initiative in pursuing those opportunities. Her career advisor helped Briana highlight her transferrable skills in her resume and become more confident interviewing. Briana attended as many workshops and hiring events as she could, and even when the job leads didn’t work out, she kept applying and perfecting her interviewing skills. Finally, in February Briana applied to Sodexo’s Facilities Management internship – a paid week-long internship that helps students learn how to oversee corporate workspaces. The interviewers were impressed with Briana’s poise and positive attitude, and they offered her the position! Briana will be working during spring break, and may have the opportunity to continue her work throughout the summer. Sodexo also offers to pay for a degree in Facilities Management to students who complete both the week-long internship and the summer internship. We couldn’t be more excited for Briana, and more proud of all that she’s accomplished! Way to go Briana!
