Time sure does fly when you’re having fun! Our #FUTURES18 have been with us for seven weeks and are learning so much as members of their individual teams, spanning across all areas of Netsmart. Over the next few weeks, they’ll give us a glimpse into what they’ve experienced in their respective roles so far.

It’s fantastic that we’re able to have talented individuals from all over the U.S. as members of our Netsmart family. From California to New York, we have locations across the country that efficiently work together through collaboration and teamwork, regardless of distance.

At Netsmart, we strongly believe that mental health is equally as important as physical health. Just as first aid may help someone with an injury in an emergency, so does Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) when it comes to someone experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. We offer all of our associates the opportunity to take an eight-hour course where they learn about the risk factors and warning signs of someone in mental health distress and are equipped with the tools to help.
When you’re young and exploring a career path, the possibilities are endless. To get a first taste of professional life, many individuals choose internships or hands-on work opportunities. By doing so, students and young professionals can learn more about a particular field or industry and apply knowledge learned in the classroom with real-world experience. Once one decides to pursue an internship, the next step is deciding where to get that experience.
It’s thrilling that FUTURES from previous summers come back to join us for another 10 weeks of learning and real-world experience. With each opportunity, they’re able to expand their knowledge and build upon what they learned the previous year. Watch as returning FUTURES Alex Beattie, Jessica Jones and Tyler Michels explain why they made the decision to spend another summer with the Netsmart family and what they’re looking forward to this year.
This week marks the beginning of our annual FUTURES summer program, a unique experience for 40 college students from around the country. They join us at Netsmart for 10 exciting weeks where they will receive firsthand, real-world experience working in various areas of healthcare IT. Two former FUTURES and current Netsmart associates share some insight into their experience and what makes being a FUTURE unique.
As a college student, the thought of entering the workforce can be really overwhelming. Knowing what to do and what to expect in a real-life employment setting can sometimes seem scary or confusing, but having a little bit of experience under your belt before graduation can really ease that stress. Many students across the country take time to participate in an internship or work experience program to give them a taste of what they can expect when it’s time to begin their career..
Our FUTURES work hard over the summer. We don’t expect them to get coffee and run errands – we put their skills and knowledge to work on live projects that make our solutions better for those who use them. FUTURES get the chance to work directly with the tools and resources our teams use every day as well as the chance to work with our wonderful clients.
Although our 2017 FUTURES program may be wrapped up for the summer, their impact will last at Netsmart. A perfect example rests in the development of a KPI Benchmarking solution developed by Consulting FUTURES Graham Wood and Michael Johnson and Engineering FUTURES Jordan Erisman and Braden Schroeder for our partners at Cornerstones of Care.
