Life is full of challenges and sometimes all we need is our support system to ease things along the way. After earning a contract with Alliance Bernstein, where I spent 6 months interning while in Year Up, YUPRO came into my life to help me with my contract and everything I needed to have a successful career. They were there from contract negotiation to strengthening my professional skills and continuously helping me update my resume and LinkedIn account. I can’t thank YUPRO enough for always being there to remind me how I can standout in the crowd and continue to develop professionally and personally.
I had to face one of the toughest decisions of my life, I received a permanent position offer to relocate from New York to Texas. YUPRO was there to help me weigh the pros and cons, as well as support me in making my decision to accept this offer and move across the country. Words cannot express how thankful I am to the attentive staff of YUPRO. Moving to Texas was a calculated risk for me, but it has been one of the best choices I have made in my career and has made a big financial impact on my life.
Some people come in and out of your life but YUPRO is still with me even after I accepted my permanent position. I believe that any Year Up Alumni searching for the skills and support needed for a successful career, needs YUPRO in their life. The organization has the perfect staff to provide continuous support, ensuring alumni accomplish their goals during a contract, in a permanent role and throughout their career.
