"My experience at The Woman’s Exchange was a great introduction into the world of Marketing. I was able to develop social media posts to help grow their social media following. Additionally, I loved learning more about the company’s values and how they prioritize empowering women of all backgrounds."

My internship with Gladys Manion helped me find my true passion: Real Estate. I had a great time working directly under the Director of Marketing and working with the other agents. I was able to work on a wide array of projects and gained a deep understanding of the real estate market. Thanks to the Student Opportunities Network for providing me with the opportunity.

During my job at PLNK Fitness I was able to gain great experience working the front desk and children’s area. I learned how to make sales in the workplace and make sure all classes ran on time. I also learned how to be flexible and ready to do whatever was asked of me that day. It was an awesome first job for me and everyone I met was super nice and welcoming. I could not have found such a great opportunity without the Student Opportunities Network!"

VaiLocal is an incredible resource that I have used since high school to find volunteering opportunities, internships, and job openings. Through VaiLocal, I was able to connect with Aerovate, an online tutoring program, and tutor a third grade student during the midst of the pandemic to support his academic skills in reading comprehension. This experience gave me a head start in growing my leadership skills as I was responsible for crafting the weekly lessons and supporting my student which gave me the skills to later work for Teach For America in their Ignite Fellowship program these past two years. By openly sharing access to opportunities in the St.Louis area, VaiLocal has supported me in working towards my career goals by making me more aware of the numerous opportunities that exist in St.Louis.
