Heights grad and KSU student to learn business through College Works internship
Rachael Evans, who lives in Cleveland Heights and is a sophomore at Kent State University, has been selected as an intern in the College Works Painting program. She is learning how to effectively run her own business and, by the end of the spring, will start managing and supervising her own hand-picked team of painters.
"One thing that I learned from the training process for this internship is to see my college diploma differently: not as a golden ticket to success, but more like a driver's license," said Evans, who is majoring in business management. "Most of the people I will be competing with in the business world also have college degrees. What will set me apart . . . is the experience I'll gain from managing my own company in this internship."
College Works Painting has been providing internship opportunities like this to college students for more than 20 years.
