On paper, ThreeBridge Solutions has been an official Genesys Works “corporate partner” for one year by hosting interns. While it’s their first time partnering with us in this regard, ThreeBridge has been intricately involved in Genesys Works success for multiple years now. Case in point: it’s their third consecutive year as the Breaking Through Ceremony (BTC) presenting sponsor.
It’s a perfect event for them to sponsor. BTC is more than the culmination point of the high school internship year. For these young professionals, it’s a rite of passage into their next phase of life, whether that’s a two-year or four-year college, entry into the military, or immediate transition into a career. BTC is our chance to say, “You’ve persisted, made mistakes, succeeded, and learned a lot. Now, don’t forget about us! We’ve got so much more for you.” ThreeBridge is not only present for this “rite of passage” but also for what comes after: college and career success.
In the past three years – since ThreeBridge Solutions began sponsoring BTC – our college and career support has grown extensively. ThreeBridge and their junior division Boom Lab have certainly enriched our strategy by providing staff and resources for multiple events for our college students. At these events, known as “Build Your Brand,” students receive professional headshots, LinkedIn profile support, mock interview practice, and resume and cover letter assistance. The latest event, held at our newly-remodeled St. Paul office, was attended by more than 30 Boom Lab staff to provide this direct service to our college students.
That’s not all. ThreeBridge has also participated in our CIO Luncheon, the Think IT Golf Tournament fundraiser hosted by York Solutions’ Think IT Association, and the MSP Hatfield & McCoys auction. Long story short, we’ve officially determined that our partnership with ThreeBridge is indispensable.
“As Genesys Works expands our support and programming for our college-aged students, the partnership from ThreeBridge Solutions enables us to make an even deeper impact in the Twin Cities,” notes Karen Marben, Executive Director of Genesys Works, “As we begin our 12th year of operations for Genesys Works in the Twin Cities, we deeply value the collaboration with partners such as ThreeBridge Solutions, for together, we are preparing a more diverse business technology workforce of tomorrow.”
Thank you, ThreeBridge, for your sponsorship of the 2019 Breaking Through Ceremony and yet another year of true partnership as we continue our impact in the Twin Cities.
