As the halfway point nears in our summers, I think we’re all starting to realize that the classic “9-5” work schedule sometimes means “8:30-5:30,” and when you get home from work, you are tired, and you don’t even want to make yourself dinner (If my parents somehow stumble upon this blog, THANK YOU for your countless 9-5 days and dinner).

There is nothing Futures love to do more than learning! This summer we’ve had plenty of opportunities to learn more about Netsmart and what other teams here do. In the past few weeks, we have attended three Lunch n Learns, and every team’s Futures have hosted a Hot Spot. Continue reading Week 5: Hosting Events as a Future – Jack Moore
Throughout our time as a Future here at Netsmart Technologies we have been to events that are very fun and enjoyable; where we perform activities and volunteer our time to come have fun together.
After a recreational trip to the plaza the previous week, we were ready to put our volunteer skills to work for the Every Day Matters campaign. This year the Futures split their day working between KVC’s Prairie Ridge Children’s Psychiatric Hospital and the Indian Woods Middle School. In the morning, our group visited the children’s hospital, where we participated in a tour of the facility and learned how Netsmart’s solutions play a crucial role in day-to-day operations. After the tour, we had the opportunity to channel our inner child, and play a variety of games with some of the children. One of the games we played was a spin-off of rock, paper, scissors that involved giants, elves, and wizards. Natalie even made a couple of new friends who kept referring to her as “Mini-Me”. The children and staff there were so friendly and everyone had a great time.
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!
Hi, Zach here, I too began my Netsmart journey on January 5th with the Consulting New Hire class. I had just graduated from college at Kansas State a few weeks before and Netsmart is my first “Real World” work experience. I was nervous the first day, but that quickly went away by the time the second day. The next five weeks of training flew by faster than left-over Jack Stack BBQ disappears in the Café at Netsmart – a common occurrence.
A group of about 10 of us were chosen to work with Netsmart’s Avatar solution. The days went fast but were filled with infinite amounts of information. Continue reading Our journey … a new hire perspective – Part 2

The Engineering Futures Say Goodbye
The software engineering futures accomplished many tasks this summer. Our first tasks were working with full-time engineers on team projects where each Future was a part of a different Netsmart Solution. Although our parts may have seemed small many of the Futures ended up saving a lot of time and money for the company. Then we split into two teams to work on two restful services Fitbit and Twilio. Continue reading The Engineering Futures Say Goodbye
As a senior in college, my thoughts are constantly on my future career and my looming graduation date. I could easily let myself overthink and worry about this future. Not to mention the fact that being a college student nowadays means that I am repeatedly told about the “horror story” that is the current job market and how competitive my résumé needs to be in order to land that dream job. All of these thoughts lead to one stressed out individual. However, my mind is put to ease when I think about my past internship with Netsmart and my ongoing one this year. My experience gives me confidence in my ability to be successful. Unfortunately, this is not the case for every internship out there. It takes a special kind of company to be willing to invest in the blooming workforce in a way that creates a lasting impact. Netsmart has given me this opportunity to grow through the Futures program. It was and is my job to take these opportunities and make the most of them.
