“I took every opportunity, and work experience was the perfect opportunity to better myself and help me figure out what I want to do after school.”
“I did not know what I wanted to do and none of my friends are talking about what they want to do. Thanks to Grandshake I found my passion and sense of clarity.”
“Through my first job shadowing, I landed a paid gig. I soon released the benefits of being employed during high school. I found other ways I can start my career and not go crazy about ATAR.”
