Here's What Current Employer Partners Say
About Pickaway WORKS’ Programs:
Bethany Reid, Health Care Logistics, Inc.
likes the benefits of students and educators
touring their facility:
"Hosting the LE Entrepreneurial class was a great way to introduce the students to the opportunities available in their own backyards. The goal was for them to make connections between their classroom work and "real life". It was also a chance as an employer to interact with the students in a less formal setting than the typical interview environment. After the tour we peaked the interest of at least one student who applied for and landed a job in our plastics fabrication division."
Ginger Short, HR Manager, YSK Corp.,
on the benefits of senior boot camp mock interviews:
"This was a great experience and I enjoyed it. Mock interviews are a great tool to give students experience and feedback to better prepare them for life. I was impressed with the young people I interacted with. This is a compliment to the Pickaway WORKS program, and to the parents, teachers and staff at Logan Elm as well."
