Netsmart’s Futures program is filled with team building activities, networking events, educational luncheons, along with meaningful work and opportunities to learn about the industry, build our professional skill set, and grow as an individual. Here, we three Futures, Claudia, Brett, and Jake, reflect on our third week of our summer internship.
I have had my greyhounds now for 3 years. I found out soon after adopting my first greyhound that the whole greyhound community of volunteers comes with. I volunteer regularly and have done a variety of tasks and attended several events over the last 3 years.
This year for my EveryDayMatters day I volunteered to bring an adoptable dog to the Arlington Pet Expo. It is an all-breed event with rescue groups, breeders, vendors, entertainment and anything and everything else you could think of. Continue reading Making EveryDayMatter at the Arlington Pet Expo
During week 2, the main focus was getting settled into our work flow, our groups and meeting team members. Engineering learned more details about their specific group project that they will complete for the summer and were assigned their roles. Consulting was shown more about the billing and clinical cycles. Then cloud computing worked with a microcomputer called the Raspberry Pi that was set up to work with their network testing. All in all, the three of us from our separate groups learned a lot about our individual teams but we are still working on learning the ropes. But we’ve also discovered our greatest asset, the Keurig machines. Continue reading FUTURES Week 2: Settling In and Setting up!
To welcome the 28 new Futures, in true Netsmart fashion, we attended an 80s themed skate party at the nearby Skate City. Although none of the Futures were born in that era, we all busted out our most bodacious outfits. Some of the most outrageous outfits included MC Hammer pants, neon leggings, and even a dudical He-Man costume. All of the Futures, their mentors, managers, and even the executives attended to give us a gnarly welcome.
We are off to a great start for our 2nd Annual Participation in KC Corporate Challenge! We are closing in on the Top 10 in our Division! With twelve events to go, our refuse to lose attitude is kicking it up a notch!
At Netsmart, we move purposely with passion and intentionality. We focus on using innovative solutions to break down barriers and push the boundaries of the health and human services industry.
Our internship program is dubbed the “FUTURES” because those who participate are an important part of our future. Our program includes a balance between classroom-based and on-the-job learning, hands-on, client based work, professional development opportunities, leadership exposure and several social / networking events throughout the summer. #ntstfutures
This summer we will once again be kicking off the Netsmart “Back to the FUTURES” Program – for current college students! We will welcome 28 FUTURES to the Overland Park office on Monday, June 1st. Continue reading Netsmart “Back to the FUTURES” Program
Associate and Leadership Development has been my focus the past nine years and is work that I am passionate about. For me there is nothing more rewarding than helping others reach their fullest potential, discover their strengths, and tap into the leader within. I love what I do and am energized to watch associates achieve their personal development goals. Making a difference in the lives and careers of associates ultimately impacts the overall success and growth of Netsmart. It is a privilege to play a role in that mission. Continue reading Growing and Developing Associates: Reach your potential!
The Netsmart office bustled with a burst of activity: laptop hoods were closed, binders and supplies were packed away, and FUTURES quickly took turns changing into shorts and sneakers; 5 o’clock had come, and with it Netsmart’s visit to Community America Ballpark to attend the Kansas City T-Bones game. Smiles flashed across the faces of my fellow FUTURES and I as we jumped out of our cars, tickets in hand, and headed into the stadium. Continue reading T-Bones Right Field Party Deck, Netsmart Style
