Student Spotlight: Jared Arnold

Congratulations to Jared Arnold! After working with his Career Services Advisor, Amanda Schickel, he not only obtained a great job but also a great internship!

Jared is working as a Security Officer at Oakridge Neighborhood Association. He did such a good job there in a part-time position that they asked him to start working in a full-time position! Way to go on the hard work, Jared!

Starting in late August, Jared will be interning at his first choice location, Polk County Juvenile Detention Center! Jared's long-term goal is to be a juvenile court officer, so this will be a great experience for him!

Congratulations, Jared, your hard work is paying off!

To give you a taste of Jared's bubbly personality, here is a peek into his hallway photo shoot...
