Dunwoody Businesses - Are You Looking For a Few Good Interns?

The Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce is looking to pair up area businesses with second-semester seniors from Dunwoody High School.  As part of the new Education initiative by the Chamber, the Internship program will help Dunwoody High School seniors get the introductory work experience they need to become successful in careers over their lifetime.

Area businesses who have internship openings are welcome to contact Sarah at the Chamber office (678-244-9700) for more information.  The internship program is a unique opportunity for the business community at all levels to contribute to and reinforce the relationship with the youth and families of Dunwoody.

The Education Initiative information will be posted to the website in the near future.  (I'm standing by waiting for the call to assist when the committee is ready.)

Here's the original email from the Chamber:

These Kids don't know what to do once you take their cellphones away.
Try talking to one of them without their cellphone in their hand.
I just spent 2 weeks on the set of Hunger Games with these spoiled brats. Attention span of 2 seconds and knowledge of the word "Quiet" 0 seconds.
As usual, "not their fault" parents let them believe they are "God's" gift.
One of them said: "I hope you are done talking, because I'm done listening." Great job parents.

Just an update. Since 1/19 3 of these little "darlins" have been escorted off set for violating their NDA's which forbid cellphones on set. I watched one of these "darlins" hiding his cellphone in a certain area of his pants. Noone can say these "darlins" did not know they had their cellphones with them in a restricted area.
Again, I would not allow any of these "darlins" anywhere near my buisiness.
Where did they get this idea that they do not have to adhere to rules they agreed to? Hmmmm
