NFTE Baltimore Alumnae Asia and Zoey

Zoey W., Deja au Vintage and Asia M., Fortuante!

At the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, Asia, Zoey, and their classmates sat down in what they thought was going to be another finance class.  Instead they were introduced to the NFTE program. Neither Asia nor Zoey imagined that a few months later, they would earn recognition both inside and outside of Baltimore for their business plans.  Both students competed at the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge and were recognized by the Mayor’s Office on Minority and Women-Owned Business Development.

Whether your summer job was career-launching, fun or just different, it’s likely that the experience helped shape who you are today. Everyone who’s had one knows summer jobs are great opportunities to uncover or polish job skills, begin to build a network and maybe most important truly discover your passions and interests.

For many, a summer job is a gateway to a career. For others, they are a financial necessity.

During my trip to Japan earlier this month, I spoke to audiences about why the jobs outlook for young people is unlike anything we’ve seen before. And how learning to think and act like an entrepreneur was the key to future job creation both in terms of making your own job and employing others.
