Looking Toward the FUTURES




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.

Here at Netsmart, we are proud to offer college and university students a unique experience through our summer internship program called the FUTURES program. We understand the importance of investing in those who join us to take our organization forward, which is why we call the program the FUTURES program. The six-year-old program is highly anticipated by college students and associates alike and we are excited to say that we’re already gearing up for the summer of 2018!

Interested in applying for a FUTURE position? Here’s what you can expect. Those who participate in the FUTURES program experience a thorough application and interview process to determine the right fit for their experience with Netsmart. Depending on availability, FUTURES can find themselves working in a variety of departments at Netsmart, from internal IT, engineering, consulting and more.

The 10-week program is primarily based in the Overland Park, Kansas, office, where students from all over the country come to participate. The program has a lot to offer in terms of real-world experience, including a balance between on-the job-learning, hands-on client-based work, professional development opportunities, leadership exposure and several social networking events throughout the summer.

During the program, FUTURES are assigned a manager and a mentor for the summer. Each FUTURE is highly valued, just as any other member of their team. They are provided the chance to work on live, real-time projects alongside other associates on their team and in some cases, working on cross-functional teams.

FUTURES are offered the chance to get hands-on experience working directly with full-time associates on projects for real Netsmart clients. Take advantage of time with our leadership team to learn about and discuss industry topics and trends. Get certified to assist those experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis with Mental Health First Aid and spend time helping others through participating in volunteer hours for EveryDayMatters.

Most of all, FUTURES have the chance to experience what makes growing a career at Netsmart special – building relationships, understanding the industry, getting in-depth exposure and experience to life-changing technologies and connecting with a cause all in an environment that breeds creativity and collaboration.

Keep an eye out on our Careers page for opportunities to apply for the FUTURES program and check out our NetsmartLIFE blog for posts written by previous FUTURE program participants.
