Marco Knight, Pinnacol Assurance
“The beginning of this would most likely be the hardest, so it’s good to keep a growth mindset because that will help you through the process. This opportunity will twist the normal lifestyle of a student, because there will be a lot of pressure added to your school work, which can be worse when you’re doing extra-curriculars. So it’s best to work on your personal brand (responsibility, accountability, leadership, teamwork, etc.). But within all the frustration, there are benefits (associates degree, bonus, etc.).”

“I am part of CareerResidency, and I’m an apprentice at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. My experience so far has been busy and stressful, but amazing at the same time. It takes a lot of work to manage everything, but I’m getting the hang of it, and would totally recommend it. It’s an awesome opportunity, and I’m glad to be part of OIT as part of the Risk and Compliance team, because they truly are an awesome team.”
Jacob Ochoa, RK Mechanical
“This is a good opportunity to gain real world knowledge of a work place while in school. Pros of participating are you make money as well as learn more in your career pathway. Cons are you will not have a lot of time to hang out with your friends, so time management is a big role in this program. If you don’t have a full schedule and are good at keeping up with grades, go for it.”
