Students gain more than work experience with ‘Future Keys’

A group of students is gaining more than work experience as part of the Future Keys Summer Student programme at the KeyTech Group.

KeyTech launched its 2013 Future Keys on June 3.

The students, also referred to as Future Keys, were welcomed to KeyTech by members of the executive team.

A total of nine senior high school and university students will participate in the programme this year.

“The Future Keys programme seeks to go beyond providing summer placements which only offer work experience, by encouraging students to have a holistic approach towards successful career development within the Bermudian workforce,” KeyTech said.

The theme for this year’s programme is Building Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.

Ms Monique White, human resources manager-recruitment for KeyTech stated, “Our theme emerged from our continuous commitment to provide meaningful summer student experiences for our Future Keys that equip them to become exceptional employees and well-rounded individuals.”

The theme is partially inspired by the “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey.

Over a period of twelve weeks the Future Keys will gain exposure to concepts related to the “7 Habits” and learn how these concepts can be integrated into their professional, academic and personal lives.

They will also gain work experience that will help them to develop core work competencies, take part in team building activities, sharpen their resume writing and interviewing skills as well as gain an understanding of social media from an employment perspective.

The programme will end with a closing ceremony where students will be rewarded for their hard work. One highlight of the ceremony will be the announcement of the Golden Key Award to the student who best exemplifies KeyTech’s corporate values and significantly contributes to their summer placement.

KeyTech is the holding company for Bermuda Telephone Company, Logic Communications, Bermuda Yellow Pages, Cable Co.
