From a Gen Z’s P.O.V: Takeaways and Goals

Paola Castillo has been an intern at Elevated for the last 3 months. We thought we’d get her to tell us what she’s been up to, what she’s learned and where she thinks she’s going in her career. By the way: If you’ve been in the workforce for a while now, I’m hoping you remember back to what you were like as a recent graduate and ask, “Are we really that different generationally or do we all just have to embrace time?” Not the point of the blog mind you, but just a good reminder of “are we really that different generationally”). Okay. We digress. This is Paola’s blog!

Introducing (a month late…) Elevated’s Intern

May 1, 2018 we got ourselves an Intern. We probably should stop calling her that since the STEP Program says she’s supposed to be called a Summer Student. Plus she isn’t relegated to demeaning tasks. She actually has a pretty legitimate job (and has been killing it for the last month too!) 

Here’s a look at Paola’s first week with us (and yeah, we know this is a month late…but better late than never!)

A Bitter Sweet Goodbye

By: Michelle McNutt

 

Well it’s the end of an era…can an era be 1.5 years? I’m going to say yes…as my ‘Elevated Era’ has a nice ring to it (alliteration will do that) and this will be how I look back on my time here. It all started with a lunch at Teatro…conversation ended with “I don’t like getting married after a first date, but this was gooood!” (Don’t worry, we followed the recruitment process…I met the team and some clients before actually saying “I Do!”, complete with a Tiffany blue box.)
