Ask Adrian Anything!

Posted by on April 4, 2016 - 9 Comments

AdrianFineLineWelcome to the second installment of “Ask Adrian Anything!”  This is intended to give our readers an opportunity to communicate directly with our intern, Adrian, about his experiences in the workplace.  It will be conducted in an interview format with Benjamin asking the questions provided by you, our readers!

Please feel free to leave more questions in the comments or contact us on Twitter @JJsList or through Facebook!

Benjamin:  What words of encouragement would you give someone who has been actively looking for a job?

Adrian:  Don’t give up too easily because eventually you will find what you are looking for.

Benjamin:  How did you get your first job?

Adrian:  My first paying job was at the Chicago Botanic Gardens (CBG) and it was through Glenbrook North (GBN) that I got the job.  I have always liked it there and when I talked with the job coach through GBN, it all fell into place.  My dad, the job coach and myself went to the gardens and they functioned as my support.  Before I took off for my senior prom, I got a call from CBG and they told me I got the job!

Benjamin:  What is NSSED and what did you do with them?

Adrian:  The North Suburban Special Education District (NSSED): Helps students become successful and happy adults in home, work, and the community by providing education in multiple areas of life.  The only time I worked with them was when I Interned at the Marriott hotel in Lincolnshire Illinois.  The person that helped me get going worked with NSSED, so I only worked with NSSED indirectly.
