Beekeeper Group celebrated its two-year anniversary last Thursday by participating in a day of service at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. Staffers and Partners worked with job-seekers crafting resumes, writing cover letters, and filling out applications. The experience made a particularly significant impression on Beekeeper intern and resident Eagle Scout, Ryan Kerr. “I’ve done a lot of these types of events before but I felt that this was one of the most personal,” he said. “It was direct interaction with the person you’re helping. You don’t always get that.”
For Partner Mike Panetta, the day was eye-opening. “You hear so much about unemployment and the job market that it’s easy to forget how difficult the process really is,” he said.
In addition to having fantastic technology resources, Beekeeper was fortunate to have the help of the tireless, patient library staff. We can’t thank them enough for their support. We had a great time and hope to be back soon!
