WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - Summer jobs and student internships are great ways to help pay for tuition and extracurricular expenses. Many students will find a job at a local retail store, restaurant, café or some business that doesn't require much physical or mental stress. If you are looking for a way to make money while actively gaining knowledge and skills that you will use in the real world after graduation, then perhaps a College Pro franchise opportunity is exactly what you have been waiting for.
For many people, college is the last great threshold before passing in to the real world work industry. Many students struggle before, during and after college deciding what to do once they have a diploma in hand. After all, just because you've graduated doesn't necessarily mean you know how you want to spend the next 30 years in the work force. College Pro Painters offers a great way to test out real life business scenarios, and the Franchise Manager program exposes students and entrepreneurs to many different aspects of business such as marketing, finance and client services. Many College Pro alumni stay with the company, moving into corporate positions, while many others parley the skills and talents acquired through the program into successful careers spanning the spectrum from advertising to small business owners.
The Franchise Manager program is not the right summer job for every student or business enthusiast. Reading through the hundreds of testimonials from College Pro program participants, you will notice many point out the hard work, long hours, stress and dedication needed to excel in this program. And that's exactly what it takes, hard work and dedication. Like starting any business, the Franchise Manager program is not a spectator sport. But for students and entrepreneurs with the drive to succeed, College Pro can give you the skills, confidence and experience to tackle whatever your "next step" may be. College Pro entrepreneurs like Matt Wheeler expand on this point:
"I can't even begin to describe all the experience that I gained out of this. Whether it's the time management skills, increased confidence, how stacked my resume looks now, the profit I made, or the full time job I was able to obtain because of this internship. Not only did this help me in my immediate future it will help me for years and years to come. I have now built an amazing base for my professional career that I can build on. I feel I have a head start on all of my peers. Thousands and thousands of kids graduate school every year and many of them do internships, but having done a few different internships myself, I can honestly say nothing stacks up to College Pro. I will use this experience in both my personal and professional life. As far as exactly how I will use this experience in my future I am unsure at this point. I have learned so much and developed in every aspect of business, I could use what I have learned for just about anything I want to do later in life. Whether it is climbing the corporate ladder or starting my own business. I have the confidence to do anything, coupled with the ability and training. The sky is the limit."
The opportunity offered to student entrepreneurs by College Pro Painters is the chance of a lifetime. If you want a successful future and you have the fortitude and perseverance to get there, College Pro offers you tools that you can use to build yourself a successful career from the ground up. You will be the owner of your own College Pro painting franchise or College Pro window cleaning franchise, you will have complete control over operations; everything from hiring employees to finding a customer base. College Pro Painters is the largest student run painting company in North America and has been the industry leader for over 40 years.
Matt Wheeler put it best, after you work with College Pro Painters, "The sky is the limit."
