Internship and Shadowing Committee Breakfast Discussion on Gen Zers
The USM Internship and Shadowing committee hosted an informative breakfast meeting on Friday, Sept. 27 featuring New York Times best-selling author Joe Sweeney. Sweeney discussed what is important to Gen Zers (loosely defined as individuals born between the mid-1990s and early-2000s), how they network and connect in the world, and how businesses can attract them. His insights were designed to prompt an insightful discussion amongst attendees.
About USM’s Internship and Shadowing Program:
University School of Milwaukee's Internship and Shadowing Program connects students with seasoned professionals in the business and medical fields. The program's mission is to develop summer opportunities for current sophomores, juniors and seniors and enable students to gain insight and explore potential career interests.
An internship program of this scope and caliber, typically reserved only for college students, is a true differentiator for USM, which joins only a handful of U.S. independent schools that provide such an offering. USM students have cited the program as instrumental in providing foundational career search skills and assisting in the highly competitive process of securing a full-time college summer internship. All program applicants must complete a professionally-led interactive training program that covers workplace etiquette, resume preparation, and interview techniques.
