From One Intern to Another

posted Jun 28, 2018, 11:19 AM by EFTA Office   [ updated Jun 28, 2018, 11:20 AM ]

            Hi! My name is Katie Pavlas and I’m currently interning at EfTA for 8 weeks this summer through the ExxonMobil Summer Jobs Program. During this time of the summer, EfTA is completely focused on their Student Internship Program. They have placed over 100 interns in businesses covering everything from marketing to chemical engineering and ranging everywhere from Houston to Willis. Still, Corinne and Monica make it a priority to visit with every intern. I’ve gotten a chance to go on a handful of these site visits and they have truly opened my eyes to the huge impact this program is making on students - and how much I wish I could’ve had this program when I was in high school!

On my site visits, I’ve seen some common impacts amongst the students, and those include: confirming that their current career path is exactly what they want to follow, realizing that there was a lot more to a job than they thought, or discovering an entirely new passion. For example, I’ve seen future veterinarians and doctors become even more passionate after witnessing surgeries first hand, a future engineer switch his passions from mechanical to chemical after experimenting in the lab, and a future marketing executive decide that maybe nursing was for her instead. Yet, no matter how sure the student is about his or her career path, each and every student I’ve seen gave the sense of being empowered. Empowered by the increased knowledge about what working looks like, but more importantly, who they are and who they want to become.

Looking back to the summer before my senior year of high school when I was filling out my college application, all I had to go on was what I thought my interests were, the many career quizzes I took (and still continue to take today) online, and faith that my life had a purpose, even if I didn’t know exactly what that was yet. To all the students reading, that last one is vital. Your purpose in life doesn’t start once you find your career, it has already started. Just keep learning and loving those around you, and the career will come - and it will come from experiences just like this one! The EfTA Student Internship Program gives students a real experience in the professional workforce. It is two weeks (80 hours) of discovery and growth by working for some of the most distinguished and hard working business people in Montgomery County. This unique experience is something I feel very lucky to have gotten to witness first hand and speak with the students involved. These EfTA interns are truly one of a kind and I can’t wait to see where they go from here.

EfTA’s Student Internship Program Creates Impact on Local Students

posted Jun 28, 2018, 8:38 AM by EFTA Office   [ updated Jun 28, 2018, 8:42 AM ]


The Woodlands, TX - The annual Education for Tomorrow Alliance (EfTA) Student Internship Program luncheon sponsored by Sam Houston State University was held on Tuesday, June 26th at The Woodlands United Methodist Church. More than 200 student participants, intern employers and supporters celebrated their involvement.  


Dylan Johnson who interned at The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership and Ruth Simpson who interned at Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital shared their insights on how EfTA’s Student Internship Program has impacted their growth. Dylan explains, “Starting on day one, the staff welcomed me and put me straight to work. I immediately felt valued and important with the tasks that they felt I was capable of doing.” He goes on to say, “I even went to an EfTA marketing committee meeting where I was able to actually contribute ideas”. Ruth’s experience shaped her, not only as a future surgeon, but as a person as well. In her speech she shares, “I have found myself transformed as an individual, becoming more cordial in public, at home, and in the aisles of H-E-B with total strangers. I applied for this internship to help myself better understand what I wanted to do as a career, but what I gained was even more than I could have ever asked for.” Keynote speaker Sheriff Rand Henderson offered students his advice including to cultivate connections, to never quit learning, and to put in the work required for a job done well.


The Student Internship Program provides an opportunity for Montgomery County high school students to explore career interests outside of the traditional classroom and gain valuable work experience during the summer before their senior year. This summer, EfTA has placed 118 public and private school students in two-week internships by partnering with 60 businesses from Houston to Willis. Collectively, intern hosts offered students more than 9,440 hours of hands-on learning to encourage early career exploration and development in a variety of industries.


The event concluded with three special recognitions. Ashley Rifaat, a recent graduate of The Woodlands College Park High School and 2017 EfTA intern at On Center Software was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Mark Woodings Education Foundation. In addition, Mckenzie Morris and Pearlyn Ang helped thank their respective intern hosts, Thais Amaral Tellawi from Amaral Tellawi Law and James Stilwell from Martin, Earl & Stilwell, LLP, for going above and beyond to ensure their interns had an extraordinary learning experience.   


Education for Tomorrow Alliance is a nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating business and community partnerships that advance student success. With innovative programs focused on career, leadership, and STEM exploration, EfTA has become the portal through which business leaders can access and strengthen local education. EfTA’s vision is that every student is equipped with the knowledge and skills to be career and college ready.

Student Internship Program #MeetTheInterns

posted Jun 27, 2018, 11:43 AM by EFTA Office   [ updated Jun 27, 2018, 11:53 AM ]


This year we placed over 100 students into two week (80 hour) internships with the help of our amazing business and community mentors ranging from leaders in veterinary sciences, chemical engineerings, education, architecture, law, and everything in between.

Want to know what EfTA's student interns in the Student Internship Program are getting up to this summer? Check us out on Instagram (@efta_official)and Facebook to keep up to date and #MeetTheInterns.

Here are a couple of examples of some of the amazing high school students EfTA has placed in internships this summer.
 

Meet Melissa, one of the multitalented EfTA interns at The Woodlands Township. While all the interns at The Woodlands Township get to do real field work focused in trapping and testing hundreds of mosquitos, Melissa went above and beyond and guest wrote an article for The Township Blog, including a beautiful drawing done by Melissa herself! Check it out using this link → https://thewoodlandstownshipblog-environment.com


Meet Gabe, one of the hardworking EfTA interns at Huntsman. Under the guidance of Michelle Coleman, he has had the opportunity to complete high pressure re-testing of surfactants in the lab. Gabe, who originally planned on pursuing Mechanical Engineering, has discovered a newfound passion in Chemical Engineering through his time at Huntsman.



Keep up the fantastic work, students!
