'We support DePaul Cristo Rey because it gives students valuable experience in the real world, something all educational programs should strive to do.' - School Outfitters President Tom Brennan.
Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
Online educational furniture retailer School Outfitters is proud to start its second year of internships with DePaul Cristo Rey, a college preparatory high school in Cincinnati.
Four students, one from each high school grade, will split time between class and working at School Outfitters in departments ranging from Accounting to Marketing to Customer Relations.
“We support DePaul Cristo Rey because it gives students valuable experience in the real world, something all educational programs should strive to do. Plus, the kids are fun to have around,” says School Outfitters President Tom Brennan.
Expectations are high for the interns, as last year’s interns were quick learners. New this year, the students will also work with School Outfitters’ Analytics department to evaluate web traffic and customer search engine behaviors, two major components of modern commerce.
School Outfitters’ mission is to help educators prepare people for the future. Its partnership with DePaul Cristo Rey is an extension of that, an opportunity to influence the lives of students directly.
Beyond learning skills important for the office, the goal is to instill the interns with confidence. “We are here to empower these students with the tools that they need to succeed here at SO and help them learn to apply these skills…in future positions,” says Brooke Ball, a School Outfitters employee who will be coaching the students.
