Christiane Marshall is one of our Entrepreneurs-in-Residence in the Epicenter’s small business incubator. One of her three entrepreneurial hats is Marietta and Beyond, an online magazine. As an incubatee, she is required to work with local students. This past week, Hannah McDole, a senior at Warren High School, completed a job shadow experience as part of the BB2C Job Shadow program coordinated by Tonya Davis. Hannah was placed with Christiane because of her interest in journalism. During her placement, Hannah wrote a piece for Marietta and Beyond encouraging parents to attend and bring their children to the upcoming Family Career Awareness Day event. This job shadow placement has the potential to turn into an internship, with Hannah being a regular contributor to Marietta and Beyond, and a correspondent for BB2C. Check back to see how it all turns out….in the meantime, read Hannah’s article:
