What are people Saying!

Cove Electric, Inc.

The Jefferson County Internship program has been a pleasure to work with!  The experience was smooth and assistance was provided every step of the way!  We really enjoy helping students earn credits for school, while working on the job and learning valuable skills to carry forth in their careers.  If we ever have a need in the future, we will surely reach out to the internship program again!

Vanessa Nilles - Project Manager
Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO)

EDCO was a great place to intern! I enjoyed all the hands on work that I was asked to do while being an intern. All the events were great, because of the people and the environment. So much goes into all the events and it shows! The people at EDCO are very caring and wanted the interns to be successful and helped us to do so. It was a great place to work and I learned a lot and met a lot of new people! 

Kali Davis - Intern
H.A. McCoy Engineering & Surveying
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the intern Youth Career Connect recommended to us.  Larry was really able to match our needs with the most qualified candidate.  In fact, she has been such an asset to our company, that we’ve offered her a permanent position.”
City of Redmond

I am so grateful for the time I spent as an Intern in the Community Development Department at Redmond City Hall. I can honestly say that from this experience I feel more prepared for what is to come when I enter the workforce after college, no matter what career I end up in. Through Career Connect, I was given the opportunity to connect with my community, and take part in a learning experience I would not have been able to find in a classroom.

Emily Osborne - Intern
High Desert ESD

"The graphic design intern that was placed with the Central Oregon STEM Hub through Youth Career Connect was such an asset to our team. Having young fresh eyes work on our branding and storytelling of the work we do has helped in broadening the understanding of our STEM work in the community and state. Mia was able to provide artwork and marketing materials that saved our organization time and effort to do and was also able to build on her own professional portfolio for future employment."

Angie Mason-Smith, Executive Director, Central Oregon STEM Hub
East Cascade Works

"Natalie Overbay has been a part of the EC Works team since November 27, working to amplify our social media presence. Natalie comes to us from Redmond Proficiency Academy where she has learned valuable skills in marketing that she is certainly putting to good use at EC Works. We are delighted to have such a young professional working with us and certainly hope that we are providing Natalie with learning that will aid her in her future jobs and in life."
