South Hills Community News Release
STATE COLLEGE — Spring marks the beginning of “internship season” at South Hills School of Business & Technology. The school’s second-year students are about to embark on the required internships they must complete before they graduate. As part of their Job Search class, South Hills Main Campus students had the opportunity to hear from Vicky Barto, Director of Staff Development for Upstream Physical Rehab Group.
Ms. Barto has been in human resources and leadership development for more than two decades and is a John Maxwell certified coach, speaker, and trainer. She gave the students advice on how to conduct a successful job search, stressed the importance of keeping a positive mindset throughout the process, and covered a few dos and don’ts when it comes to preparing their resumes.
Vicky shared one of the greatest life lessons she has learned: “You can only go as far as the limits you put on yourself. Release your limits.”
Job Search instructor, Eleanor Martin, added, “Preparing our students to be ready for interviews and internships is very important and shows them what to expect upon graduation. Vicky is very knowledgeable, and we appreciate her investing time in helping our students succeed.”
