Yael speaks to the class about his experience in the Life Skills class which led to his PAID summer internship at CVS Health and his ongoing employment at CVS Health in multiple departments. “I really focused on making sure everyone I met working at CVS Health liked and respected my brand as well as constantly networking with new CVS Health employees. This created long term opportunities for me at the company. I was recently offered a job in the Digital Products division of CVS.“ Yael has created a schedule which allows him to continue to be a full time college student and work at CVS Health.
