Summer jobs help Student Painters participants get on the job training for their painting businesses.
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2013 -- Mike Timen is a senior in the economics program at Purdue University, but he’s been working for the last two years as a student painter to get business training during the summer months. He started in 2012 as a branch manager for a painting company, doing entrepreneurial work that would also help his economics studies.
According to his dad, Mark, Timen had never been a painter before he started the program. He was previously a camp counselor, but wanting to go into business economics led him to try out managing a painting a business, and so far it has been successful in terms of money and experience.
With more experience, Timen is spending less time on the paintbrush and more time behind the desk to run the business, but he has hired very good help to do the work for him. Summer, a junior organizational student at Purdue is one of those people. She says it has helped her learn knowledge and zeal for running a successful business.
Jack Rolan, who hired Timen and his team to paint his house, noticed right away their attention to detail. He said the painters came out to put an estimate of the work and they held to it. If a problem arose, Timen made sure the team stayed focused. At the end of a job, customers are asked to fill out a report card for the painters. According to Timen, the only acceptable grade for his company is “excellent”.
