A Letter from the Future
We have quite a few millennials running around the campus these days, and I can only speak for myself to say the experience has been excellent. In addition to our current summer intern program for over 100 college kids working in various departments across Kronos, we also support a smaller intern program with high-schoolers from nearby Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School. This past school year, I managed one of the Cristo Rey kids, and based on my observations of her intelligence, work ethic, and humanity, I’m optimistic this generation will make the world a better place. In managing this young lady, I focused on her interests and strengths, and tried to provide sound advice, but I also honed in on what I considered her biggest opportunity for improvement to succeed professionally. It was a little scary for her, but I do believe she found her voice.
Last month I received this letter. Another example that the kids are alright.
