Corporate Mentor Supports IT Job Training Student

Corporate Mentor Supports IT Job Training Student

 

In the fall, BHH partnered with Office Depot to launch a new corporate mentoring initiative that pairs Office Depot team members with students in the IT Help Desk (IT) Job Training Program. Volunteer mentors from Office Depot will work with their students for the duration of the training program, providing direct insight into an IT career, helping them to stay motivated, and aiding them with their studies in preparation for certification. 

The first BHH student to take advantage of this opportunity, Diana Cerquera, is being mentored by Prakash Sankaran, Senior IT Director for Office Depot. With his guidance, she will soon complete her vocational program through The Academy in Miami. He is also helping to prepare her for the A+ network test, a complex exam required for CompTIA A+ certification (the preferred qualifying credential for IT support and operational jobs). 
A hardworking student, Diana has been enthusiastic about her experience. “The IT Program is helping me advance in my career in a very positive way,” she said.  “I am growing as a professional and able to make a good living.”
