Pros: professional setting offered a taste of the real world at the tender age of 17!
Cons: having to leave after my contract was fulfilled! had to focus on college.
LOVED working at Medtronic World Headquarters using the skills I attained training with Genesys Works. Would do it all again! Gained immense knowledge as well as respect for the professional setting I was working in.

Growing company with a cohesive, hardworking team.
Program Coordinator (Former Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 12, 2013
A typical day at Genesys Works included duties ranging from HR paperwork, management of client relationships, school visits, recruiting new companies via presentations, and teaching college access classes to a group of 20-30 students.

At Genesys Works I learned many skills including how to interview and process new hires, create compelling presentations, how to manage a team and hold them accountable for deliverables, and how to foster client relationships.

My coworkers were hard working and ready to step in whenever required in order to get the job done. This made for a very hardworking, cohesive team.

The hardest part of the job was switching roles frequently, but this soon became exciting and natural. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with such an excellent, well qualified team.

Avid business enviorment, that helps teenagers build on business and technical skills.
IT Consultant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 5, 2012
Genesys works is a very tough program because it takes most of you time. It's an internship for juniors in high school who are becoming seniors. It teaches you the essential function of a computer-- both hardware and software components. While also, giving you advice on becoming a business professional in the work environments. Lastly, it helps you with school getting into college and scholarships.

Save and fun workplace with learning IT skills and repairing computers,
IT training for possible internship (Current Employee), Minnesota, MN Twin City.July 18, 2012
Pros: internships, learing how the professional world works.
Cons: short breaks
A typical day would be working into the work place professionally dressed. Sitting at the desk and getting to work. I have learning how to repair computers and answers questions that customers have.
The hardest part of this job would probably be troubleshooting because I am still new at this.

Traning- 8 weeks of summer
MEDICA CONTRACTOR (Former Employee), MinnesotaJune 27, 2012
We learned how to give a speech to a larger sized crowd, be more enthusiastic, and how to give a professional speech. We also were though the fundamentalist of IT work; how to configure a computer, what things are called inside the computer and how it all works together. Went through Cisco test curriculum; an IT trainer went through the chapters and we took the test on our own.
Co-workers were the other students in the training that fought hard to pass the training in order to be placed in a paid internship during our senior year in high school.
Hardest part of the job was leaving and not being able to continue training it was very fun and exciting everyday that went by.
Really enjoyed the family environment couldn’t have been any happier with a different group of people.
