Skyler's Story: A Passionate Intern on the Path to Success
Skyler joined Sertoma and ProjectSearch in March of 2020 as an intern at Parkwest Medical Center. Our programs like Project SEARCH not only train individuals for their internships, but also teaches them professionalism, working with co-workers and life skills. Initially, Skyler struggled with decision making and had a general lack of confidence. He was motivated to learn and quickly made strides in building his confidence and understanding his duties. He has been looking for ways to lead and was recently awarded Parkwest's Intern of the Month. This week Skyler was offered a full-time position at Parkwest in their Environmental Services department. The swift and precise collection of biohazard trash throughout the hospital, including the surgical suites, is very critical to hospital operations.
Skyler is very proud of his offer of full time employment and is looking to further increase his independence by studying and practicing to get his drivers license.
