Juan Luis Monje hasn’t yet started his senior year of high school, but he already has a plan for his future.
The 17-year-old wants to go to college for graphic design, a passion he developed as a frequent visitor to the Best Buy Teen Tech Center in suburban Denver.
And, this summer, he’s doing an internship at a local staffing agency to gain some work experience while reviewing resumes for potential employees.
“I think it’s a huge jumpstart,” he said. “Not many people get an experience like this. I’m getting an introduction to the business world.”
Juan Luis’ internship is part of Best Buy’s new Career Pathways program, which is designed to help students at our Teen Tech Centers develop job-readiness skills. It also builds a future workforce for Best Buy and other tech companies.
