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.
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.
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

I am a brand new full time employee at Netsmart. Even though I started in January, I had been a future here for the past two summers. I have had the opportunity to work on OrderConnect during my last summer at Netsmart while completing my computer science degree at Kansas State, but this project changed the environment that I was previously used to.

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
If you would have asked me in the beginning, what I expected to gain from this internship, I would have retorted with the typical, boss-pleasing response involving one of the following: to gain insight to corporate life, or to expand my knowledge within my chosen career path, or even better yet, to align my wants with the company’s needs so that we may function as a cohesive unit, constantly working toward a common solution or goal that benefits both parties. Just imagine the look on that executive’s face after piping off with that last little beauty. Continue reading The Netsmart Bunch
