Jon, a junior at Newton North High School, was a supervisor at a local tennis and squash club for the summer and wondered if he would be able to fit in an internship. We were able to establish a 3-day per week experience that was customized for his schedule.
We matched Jon to an early stage company in the messaging, communication and social media space. The Chief Technology officer and Co-founder wrote Jon’s letter of recommendation:
“Our enterprise is at the leading edge of technology, which matches well with Jon’s academic and professional interests. We were able to provide him with rapid-fire experience in business at the dead center of today’s challenges.
Jon’s ability to pick up new tasks and get stuff done was frankly amazing. He jumped right in and became part of the team, providing input to problems that we actually implemented.”
In his journal, Jon told us, “The more I worked as an intern, the more I became integrated into the actual world of a CEO. At one point, I gave him a suggestion from a different perspective and it turned out to work really well. I learned to be more confident and expressive with my own ideas.”
