College Students Focus On Careers

CitySquash kicked off the New Year with our first ever Career Week during the first week of January. Programming consisted of individual meetings and group workshops designed to support our college students with career exploration and internship and job placement. During their winter breaks, CitySquash college students met with the Director of College Prep to discuss career interests and create action plans regarding summer internships and opportunities. Then on Thursday, January 4th, 16 college students traveled to the midtown offices of Maverick Capital for a Career Night Panel. Team members received advice and engaged with four young professionals on everything from the transition from college to the working world to the importance of networking. Special thanks to Zach Kubin (OnSwipe Media), Mali Locke (Maverick Capital Foundation), Sam Routhier (KIPP College Prep) and Kristin Wadhwa (Goldman Sachs) for donating their time and making the night a success. CitySquash also hosted a Mock Interview workshop the following Saturday, January 5th. Supporter Buzz Doherty and Board Chair and Founder Sandy Schwartz offered valuable interview tips and gave practice interviews and feedback to our attending team members. We are hopeful that all of the work our college students put in during their winter breaks will pay dividends come the summer and college graduation.
