**GO-Live! Netsmart and The Jewish Board team
I am humbled to have the pleasure to post this picture. Today marks the initial Go-Live for The Jewish Board in New York City. They are New York City’s largest provider of Health and Human Services. This project began on July 6th, 2015 and 8 months later we are going live. The project team that has worked on this project have been absolutely flawless in their efforts and have worked extremely hard.

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.
Continue reading Reflections on Week #3 of the Netsmart FUTURES program!
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.
Continue reading Back to the FUTURES – Week 1
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

The newest hiring classes from Evolv, Addiction Management, and VRS are hosting a donation drive to help the children in need at KVC Health Systems.

“I have been with Netsmart since early November 2014, but have worked as a Project/Program Manager for over 15 years. Knowing that Netsmart values leadership and education, I brought an idea to the table regarding project management though the use of the Netsmart Yammer blog. Because of my blog post, I had the opportunity to meet with a member of the Netsmart Executive Team. We spoke about my project management philosophies and found that we both agree. It’s wonderful to know that Netsmart and its executives are always open to meeting and working with their staff.”

So my journey with Netsmart began back in October of 2014 on my first day walking into the main Kansas building. I decided not to be shy, and introduced myself to the five other people that would start with me that day. I think that automatically made me Amy, the chatty one, in the group. We soon learned more about our roles and starting on day two, we dove right in and spent the next few weeks learning. We shadowed other associates and trained one another over what we had learned. We studied the modules, programs, events, and setups while testing each other on a daily basis.
After having spent a lot of time in the Clara Barton (pioneer nurse who founded the American Red Cross) training room, I was ready to get going. Of note, all of our conference rooms have @CauseConnected names.
After onboarding ended, my traveling adventures began Continue reading Our Journey … A new hire perspective – Part 3

This happened on Friday July 25th when NTST had the Royals party porch rented out for our event. Early in the game, the Indians Carlos Santana hit a homerun that landed right in front of me. Beside me covering her face is my wife, Anni, and Margy Foody (Insight team) is to my left. Mike Jones is also visible to my right next to my wife. Anyway, I missed catching the ball but was able to retrieve it. As I held it up in celebration, the NTST team and other fans collectively yelled, “THROW IT BACK! THROW I BACK!”. In the spirit of team, I obliged and threw it back. I am really happy it didn’t hit Omar Infante on the infield…but it came close! Shortly thereafter my phone started blowing up with Facebook messages of the video, texts, and calls from friends and other NTST team members who couldn’t make the game. All in all, it made for a great story at a really fun event. Looking forward to the next one!

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.
