Summer Jobs Students Prepped for Success at Orientation

 

BeyondtheBillable1

Last Thursday, 16 Beacon bustling with its usual activity. What set this particular Thursday apart was that it wasn’t lawyers packing the BBA’s conference rooms for networking and legal education events, but 64 Boston public high school students.  The BBA Summer Jobs students started their morning in the Conference Center getting to know one another and getting the low down on what to expect, not only on their first day of work, but throughout the entire summer.  Career Specialist Teresa Alleyne (Boston Private Industry Council) and former Summer Jobs student Emmanuelle Renelique (WilmerHale) helped calm the students’ first office job nerves by offering helpful tips to prepare them, including appropriate dress code for an office setting and suggestions on how to interact with their coworkers.

Take a look below for highlights from the morning:
