For first-generation college students, embarking on a career path can be like entering foreign territory. Many do not have role models to help with the all-important details that can differentiate themselves in competition for a job – a firm handshake, small talk, dressing professionally. They also may not know how to choose a career path, write a resume and interview for that first job or internship.
To help students transition into the workforce, SRA launched its successful College2Career program to ensure its students are job-market ready upon college graduation. SRA’s career development program, like its college completion support, is tailored to the individual. It works. Through summer internships, opportunities for networking and job shadowing, individual career coaching, and job readiness workshops, our students gain the skills and confidence that are invaluable to their success in college and beyond.
Your business, nonprofit organization, government agency, or corporation can play a valuable role in helping to prepare SRA students for their future in the workforce. Our students are bright, dedicated, and eager to learn. SRA works one-on-one with each employer to ensure that the student and the employer have a meaningful experience. If you are interested in finding out how you or your employer might partner with us in providing a summer internship or full-time position for one of our students, please contact SRA’s Internship Manager, Lauren Brener.
