Detroit Partners with Accenture for ‘Finding the Right College’ Workshop

Thirteen New Look Detroit Academy students (9th-12th graders) experienced a “finding the right college” workshop led by Accenture employees. The workshop helped them discover the right major and minor, learn the importance of developing a college portfolio and provided students with resources to help with their college search. This networking session helped students create effective elevator speeches and provided them tips for their resumes and a practice environment for college interviewing.

9th grader Dajion Longmire said he learned, “Of all the things we can do. The best thing we all can do is just be you.”

Well said, Dajion! Thank you Accenture!
