assignment at an area business. Internship sites are tailored to meet each student's needs
and to complement his/her program.
"SAFECO had the opportunity to work with an SCC student for two weeks earlier
this year. The time was mutually beneficial to both the student and SAFECO. The student
gained exposure to a corporate environment, observed workflows and utilized business
equipment and automation. The company gained extra help and a new perspective and
experience working with someone who could potentially be a candidate for employment. I
welcome the opportunity to host another student in the future. "On the job"
experience brings the office technology school curriculum to life for the student while
adding value to the business...it's a win-win!"
