Akamai Technologies Hires GIS Intern Olivia!

Hopeworks recently began a WIP partnership with Akamai Technologies as one of our many dedicated hiring partners. Through the work of team members such as Riscee Langhorne, these partnerships will continue to allow young professionals like Olivia to thrive in career paths they may have never considered.

Olivia joined Hopeworks after working in a select number of food service establishments for about 6 years. She has always loved learning about politics, history, art, and psychology. During her time here, Olivia gained technical and soft skills that she will utilize in her career going forward.

Olivia came to Hopeworks with the hopes of transitioning into a new career, but never considered herself to be tech savvy. She will be working as a Customer Support Representative in her new role and is working on getting IT certified through Google and Coursera!
