Fran Proudly Accepts Position at Philadelphia Water Department!
After much training, dedication, and hard work, Web Team intern Fran Dixon has earned a position with the Philadelphia Water Department! Fran will initially join the team as a Community Apprentice, through an internship with the Development Department to prepare for their role as an Engineering Aide.
Fran points to Hopeworks as a launchpad for success and professional development. “Hopeworks helped me practice my professionalism and connected me with Rodriguez University. Rodriguez University helped me gain the knowledge, experience and network I needed to land a job with the Philadelphia Water Department.”
During their time at Hopeworks, Fran also connected with Hopeworks Board President, Brad Aronson. Brad is an angel investor, mentor and creator of the Hopeworks Entrepreneurship class.
“Brad Aronson has also been a huge help by preparing me with mock interviews prior to my interview. Overall, I am excited for this new journey into engineering and into the city of Philadelphia.”
Philadelphia Water Department is gaining a huge asset with Fran who has proven to be a thoughtful, generous, and compassionate person! Congratulations!
