Get Out of Dead End Jobs!

NCWorks exists to help everyone – regardless of education level or where they are on the career ladder.  And in today’s competitive job market, college grads have it just as hard as everyone else. Stephanie is one such recent grad who wasn’t having success in her attempts to find find full-time employment. As a result, she was working 2 part-time jobs, neither of which was related to her video production major.

One way to employment, if all goes well, is through an internship.  Stephanie’s search for one in her field ended with 40 rejections. Then she heard about NCWorks NextGen’s Backpacks-to-Briefcases program which specializes in getting recent grads into the workforce. NextGen got her an internship at Uptone Pictures and now she’s a full-time video editor at UNC-TV! Congratulations, Stephanie! #ncworksworks!
