The most important skills I’ve learned in my Genesys Works experience are all of my professional skills. Throughout the summer and internship year, I’ve gotten more preparation for becoming a young professional, and my program coordinators have helped me a lot. For example, I’ve learned how to dress in a professional setting, send out professional emails, and code switch.
By providing me with an internship experience, Genesys Works is paving me a new path rich with opportunity and is completely restructuring my life in the best way possible. I originally applied for this program because I felt that going to school wasn’t enough for me to make a decision about what I want to focus on in the future. I’ve felt pressured many times to answer the question “What career do you want to pursue?” because I didn’t think I had the needed resources and experience to make that decision.
