NOT JUST LEARN BUT USE AND IMPROVE
WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU
To make sure you have the soft skills colleges and employers seek, you need to know what those skills are. But you also have to integrate them into your everyday life now, while you’re young, so those behaviors become ingrained into your personality.
If college officials and coordinators for industry training programs want to admit individuals who take learning seriously, then that is what you need to do every single day. And your course choices and grades need to reflect that commitment.
If employers want people who can work as part of an accountable team in which each person is evaluated by the amount and quality of the work he or she produced, then you have to understand what that means and take part in experiences that can help you gain those skills and showcase them in a résumé.
If colleges and industry training programs want students who are dedicated to their own success, then you need to be able to present them with a high school transcript that reflects that dedication.
Think of it this way.
If all you did was read about baseball, or watch movies about baseball, or memorize the rules of the sport but you never actually played the game, how well would you do trying out for the big leagues?
College and work are the big leagues. The more – and the earlier – you ‘play the game,’ the more likely you will succeed in the try-outs, and in the World (of college and work) Series. In our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program, you will be practicing and improving those skills with every activity you do, every teleconference you attend, every presentation you hear.
And it’s the ‘improve’ part that catches the interest of colleges or employers.
After all, the story of a very smart person getting top grades in all his or her courses is not so surprising. But the story of a person who might have been challenged in math classes but worked hard over the course of his or her high school years to go from a ‘C’ to a ‘B’ or even an ‘A’ in Mathematics is the kind of story that will get you somewhere – if you know how to tell it the right way.
And that’s what you will learn in our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program. You will learn how to create the right story and how to tell it so you can position yourself as the next student who should be admitted into the college or training program of your choice, or the one person who is best for the job!
CREATING AND TELLING THE RIGHT STORY WILL GET YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO GO.
YOU WILL MAKE IT RAIN!
Start now to learn, practice, and apply the skills you will need to earn your future success.
