As a returning FUTURE from last year’s team, I can tell you for sure that it is very different from my previous experience. I am very happy with both experiences. The differences that we get to enjoy this year are enormous. We get to work side by side with the full time associates and work on the actual solutions that Netsmart providers to their clients.

One of the most distinguished attributes about working at Netsmart is that everyone genuinely enjoys working together, and collectively everyone has a great time. This is an especially evident in the Futures program. Since the beginning of this one-of a-kind experience, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the other Futures and having the opportunity to work closely with each person.
Today we go from Futures to adventurists and take on the Kansas City Country Club Plaza for an “Instagram Scavenger Hunt.” As one of the social events planned for the summer, we are leaving the office around 2:30 and are on our way to the Plaza with clues in hand. This game will consist of a five team invasion, no speeding tickets, many hilarious pictures posted, and food to follow. I have been at Netsmart almost 3 weeks now, and I have learned it isn’t a true Netsmart event unless there is food or cookies.
Hello fellow Netsmartians! My name is Sarah Sauer, and I am a new Delivery Analyst Avatar Future here at Netsmart. This first week of training has been an interesting one, but overall I could not be happier to be here.
I first came upon Netsmart when I was researching employers coming to the Oklahoma State career fair last fall. Being a Nutritional Sciences Pre-Medicine major, there weren’t many options applicable to me. Netsmart, however, caught my eye due to its close relationship with the healthcare field. I researched the company website, and sought out their booth on the day of the event.
Last night we celebrated the start of our 2014 FUTURES program at the College Basketball Experience. After a warm welcome by our CEO, Mike Valentine, over 100 Netsmartians from departments such as consulting, engineering, hosting, and finance were divided into 10 teams and sent on their way to complete 10 different challenges throughout the evening.
It was a great opportunity for us to get to know our FUTURES as well as introduce them to team members that they normally wouldn’t see on a daily basis as they will work in different departments.
While we are no Basketball champs by any means we still had a lot of fun shooting hoops! The quote of the night by an anonymous VP of Engineering was: You can tell that we are coders around here! 🙂
We are excited to have you here for the summer! WELCOME 2014 FUTURES!!!
