Why It Works

A Pathway to Diversity

Partner Impact & Benefits

Cristo Rey Jesuit’s Corporate Work-Study Program can open the door for corporate change. When you invest in our students, you support the development of a diverse workforce and provide career and technical training for the next generation. Hiring Cristo Rey Jesuit students is an easy win, and is a small step in the process as you implement long-term strategies to support your workforce. Participation in our program is a key driver in the development of a holistic inclusion program and an investment into the future – one from which we will all benefit and receive a return.

As a result of hiring our students through Corporate Work-Study Program, our corporate partners:

  • Support the development of a diverse workforce 

  • Serve as educators and mentors to empower the next generation of business leaders

  • Access a pipeline of highly qualified employees 

  • Fill full-time, high-turnover entry-level jobs at a lower cost than market rates

 

Student Impact & Benefits

In addition to offsetting the cost of their education and making a private college-preparatory education affordable for their families, students acquire years of valuable professional work experience before they go to college. As a result of working in a business environment, Cristo Rey Jesuit students:

  • acquire valuable job experience

  • obtain marketable skills

  • create positive relationships in professional communities

  • develop a network of business contacts

  • gain exposure to a wide range of career opportunities that inform their college decisions

A great experience I had during my internship was connecting with attorneys who shared their process of becoming a lawyer. Through fostering these relationships and receiving advice from professionals with many different educational and personal backgrounds, it allowed me to genuinely solidify my interest and passion for becoming a lawyer.

For over a decade Chamberlain Hrdlicka has hired Cristo Rey interns, so we have seen the value the students bring at our firm. The Cristo Rey internship program is a win-win as the students benefit from being in a work environment and our firm benefits from the work done by the students and giving back to our community.
