Internships Begin as Graduation Approaches

It's hard to believe seven weeks have already flown by and there are just three more weeks until this class of 10 students graduates and will be on the path to employment and living the adult lives of their choosing. So many friendships have been forged and memories made. Students are now enjoying their internships and working far more independently alongside their employee peers and mentors as they prepare for life beyond EGTI. They continue to sharpen and refine their job skills as well as their self advocacy and job readiness. At this time students also finalize resumes, practice with mock interviews, and focus on expectations in the workplace as a part of the final stages of their training program. Graduation is Friday, Dec. 22, 2017 at 6 p.m. and is hosted at Courtyard Muncie at Horizon Convention Center, home of EGTI.
