Rutherford Works creates a partnership with other who employers who provide work experience and assignments for students who wish to go in depth in their area of interest. This program is a paid internship that allows rising seniors to gain experience with a Rutherford County employer.

Kyleigh Bowers, senior, took part in the internship and applied for the Government and Public Administration pathway.

“They gave a lot of information about different resources you could use to look professional. I think through learning all of it I have an understanding of what I can do to make myself useful in the real workforce,” Bowers stated.

They teach interns 21st century skills that they can apply to the adult world once out of high school. The experience will help them succeed in their workplace.

“It taught me a lot about proper workplace etiquette and how to interact with higher ups and how to present yourself professionally,” Bowers stated.

Through this program, Bowers worked in the Rutherford County HR department and interacted with the other employees and gained more friends through the other interns.
