(Englewood, NJ, August 16, 2012) – For the past five years, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has been a proud participant in the City of Englewood’s Summer Youth Employment Program, which is designed to connect area high school students with employers who can help to develop their career goals. Students are given the opportunity to earn money in a professional environment, gain invaluable exposure to career opportunities within their community and establish positive working relationships with staff members. The Medical Center’s Human Resources Department interviewed students and assigned them to departments most in line with their career goals. Students trained alongside physicians, nurses and staff in a variety of capacities, including the Medical Center’s world-renowned Breast Care Center.
