Learning What It Takes

2019 sap pic Learning what it takes to be successful at SAP, one of the world’s top enterprise software companies.  Twenty- two WCASD high school students attending the job shadow event at SAP America in Newtown Square on February 8th.  The students heard from professionals in sales, marketing, finance, IT and innovation.  Several of the speakers were only a few years out of college and shared valuable information with our students about the importance of LinkedIn, internships and extra-curricular activities.  Another common theme was working hard and learning from your mistakes.  Thank you SAP for an amazing opportunity to open our students’ eyes to the many career options in our area.
