The New Grad program has helped me to join a network of other like-minded young professionals while allowing me to explore all the options that Rogers has to offer. The ability to move from one position to another all within a year is a very unique experience in terms of normal career paths, and it’s given me time to be thoughtful about what I want my own career path to look like. It’s the ideal way to enter a workforce and an industry that is always changing.

A new grad is full of energy, excitement, eagerness and that is exactly what the work environment brings. Someone who loves a challenge and enjoys learning new things. I also love that you will always have support every step of the way.
How has the New Grad team/program helped with the transition of joining a company?
The New Grad program helped with the transition to the corporate culture by providing an extensive 2-week onboarding session where we practiced using the Rogers presentation style, learned about the way Rogers is organized and more! It also really helps to have a cohort of other people who are your age and are going through the same thing you are. You always have someone to chat and eat lunch with!
Tell us about the people you work with – what makes them great?
My team is constantly supportive and endlessly game for whatever new (and often crazy) idea I have. My manager is always ready to listen to the suggestions I put forward, often helping me to make them a reality. Everyone is up for a challenge—even if it doesn’t benefit them directly—and that kind of teamwork really allows for me to be creative, which I really enjoy!
