This knowledge allowed us to be abreast on the skills needed in the Internet Technology (IT) industries.  AIT, Inc. has customers from over 130 countries!   AIT has computer programmers, engineers, administrative assistants, and web page designers busy at work daily. They communicate with clients through Skype, chat boxes, and emails. AIT is one of the longest standing Internet technology providers in the world with costumers ranging from small to medium sized companies. Helping customers with webpage design and templates for layouts thus making designing easier for their clients.

Mike Noble of AIT stated that high school students are allowed to job shadow in the company. To have this valuable opportunity and first-hand knowledge allows students to make better career choices in IT industries. Mr. Noble also stated the importance of having various IT Certifications, which makes potential employees more marketable in the workplace. In the IT industry you must be willing to always learn something new.  Knowledge is power!  IT is found everywhere and used every day in solving issues in the workplace. Don’t be afraid of learning new technology because it is always changing.

SVHS, Chef Payne Miles

Chef Payne Miles

On Friday, March 9th, Chef Payne Miles from Johnson & Wales University spoke to the Culinary Arts students at South View High School.  He encouraged the students to pursue a career they love and is passionate about.  At Johnson & Wales, students are allowed to dive right into what they love during their first semester.  Students learn real world experiences that mirror the workplace and develop valuable analytical and communication skills needed to manage complex situations.

Chef Miles explained to the students the admission process, how to apply for financial aid, campus living, and the various majors offered at the university.  The students were very interactive with the speaker by asking questions such as “What is an acceptable SAT score for the university?’ and “Are there internship opportunities for students?”

Chef Miles prepared a crispy fried rice with pickling onions and cucumbers which were cooked in various spices.  Chef Miles told the students, “This is one of my wife’s (who is from Jamaica) favorite dishes.”   The students loved it!

The ICON Summer Internship Program is co-sponsored by the Cumberland County Schools (CCS), City of Fayetteville, Public Works Commission (PWC), and the NCWorks Career Center. The goal is to hire 30+ youth to work 32 hours per week for six weeks in positions in the Cumberland County area.  Please see the following flyer for details. ICON Summer Internship Flyer 2018

Intern participants must meet eligibility requirements to include security, employability, and drug screenings. Participants must also provide their own transportation to and from the internship site while working.  Interested youth can complete the Summer Internship Application 2018

Application deadline has been extended to  April 16, 2018

There are many benefits of work-based learning for young people and the employer.  Our youth use internships to determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, and to gain valuable work experience.  From an employer perspective, the commitment to hire one youth creates an opportunity to prepare and train future employees, improve employee retention and increase employer visibility in education.  A healthy, well-trained workforce is the most valuable asset at any company, and by hiring our youth, you will be planting seeds for future employees loyal to your company.  Business partners who would like to host an intern should use the following link to complete the  Worksite Request Form 2018

Please direct all questions to Nore Brantley, High School to Work Partnership Coordinator at norebrantley@ccs.k12.nc.us or  910-864-5438 ext 759.
