In June we not only welcomed 135 students to Genesys Works – Twin Cities, but also doubled the staff in our office. This enthusiastic group jumped right in, working diligently to arm our latest group of Young Professionals with the professional and technical skills they need to be successful in the workplace. New staff members have been here only a few short weeks, but their knowledge, leadership and energy have already been noted by our students and their contributions are helping make this our most successful summer yet!
Also joining us for the summer are four outstanding Technical Trainers. David Pickens, our Lead IT Instructor, is back for his fourth summer with Genesys Works – Twin Cities and has been instrumental in refining our curriculum. We are also thrilled to have Mayfield Fayose join us again this summer. Both David and Mayfield have invaluable experience teaching in a variety of venues including their current roles as instructors at Inver Hills Community College. Joining them this summer are Joe Zwack and Joanne Knobel. Joe is a former Best Buy Geek Squad member and has great hands on stories to share in the classroom, while Joanne comes with great experience in training and owning her own business. We are excited to have them bring IT to life for our students.
With this group joining our six current staff members we are confident our Class 4 Young Professionals will be even better prepared to succeed in their internships this fall!
