When local business leaders get involved in ESC’s Central Ohio Workforce Readiness Collaborative, they not only influence curriculum; they also get first access to top talent. Why wait until the leaders of tomorrow graduate high school? Instead, begin cultivating relationships and creating opportunities when students are just starting to think about their futures. Time is money, and ESC makes it easy for business leaders to develop mutually beneficial opportunities with local school districts that deliver a strong ROI.
G&J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers, Inc.
- G&J Pepsi was proud and excited to host a student through the High School Tech Internship Program from Canal Winchester High School. Throughout the internship, our student was exposed to a variety of skills including networking, security, help desk support, app development, and data engineering along with overall business skills that came from working with us. Canal Winchester High School and Sandy Thomaschek have done great work in preparing the students for IT careers and as a result, the student was able to have a positive impact very quickly. These opportunities for getting students additional skills and exposure to working environments are critical for their future success.
- I think the benefits for the future workforce are just unlimited because of this program. I think it's super important to get in front of students at an earlier age are super instrumental in introducing them to pathways or careers that they might not have been thinking about before this program when you participate Worthington industries we have benefited from our partnership with them in the past and we would definitely be interested in doing this it is valuable for our for our staff and our employees to talk with educators to they're experiences and it's important for teachers to understand our industry as well as others that are available in the Columbus and central Ohio area.
