Project SEARCH Highlights

SEARCH Intern Makes the Most of Opportunity with Bon Secours

Jalen completed his first internship at Project SEARCH with the Materials Management department. During his time with the department, Jalen quickly learned the job tasks and began asking his mentor for additional tasks. The management shared how impressed they were with Jalen's work performance and encouraged him to apply for a materials management tech position at the completion of his internship. Jalen's dream job was to work in a hospital and feels that he's been given the chance of a lifetime.

Bon Secours highlighted Jalen's hiring on their employee blog:

"Our SFMC Supply Chain Coordinator shared that Jalen made his mark here by quickly catching on to the department's daily activities and processes.

Within a week, he mastered using the scanner for deliveries. One of the things his teammates appreciated most was that after he was taught how to do something, he immediately took initiative to go and try it on his own, without being asked.

His dedication, engagement and initiative made Jalen stand out as an excellent candidate and led to him being the first Project SEARCH intern hired to join our Supply Chain team as an SFMC employee. It has been and will be an honor to see Jalen continue to learn and grow within his new team and our St. Francis Medical Center family."

Congratulations to Jalen!
