We are happy to feature Lahey Clinic in Lexington in today’s blog post, as we wish to recognize 15 great years of partnership between Lahey and Project Bridges! We currently have two Cotting students working at Lahey who are organizing and categorizing lab notes, as well as sorting mail.
The Human Resources interview procedure is what makes Lahey stand out among our many work sites. As we think about preparing students to transition to work after Cotting someday, it is important to consider the interview process that typically occurs before a job. As part of the Transition work we do with students at Cotting, we spend time talking about common questions and answers that might occur in a job interview. To work at Lahey, our students are expected to go through an interview process with a Lahey staff member, which they practice beforehand with a Cotting job coach. Once they are offered the job, they have to pick up their security badges at the Lahey Burlington site. This HR process is the kind of practical experience that we hope our students get, in addition to on-the-job skills, during their time in Project Bridges!
Check out a few photos of our students at work at Lahey!
