To experience what an actual corporation was like in the real world, as opposed to learning about it in my classes, was eye-opening for me.  I expected to walk into an office filled with cubicles and a dull atmosphere; instead, I entered an open and friendly environment.  It changed my perspective on the corporate world.

I never expected Junior Achievement to be anything like it is. I thought it would be a classroom lecture. I never thought it would be so interactive, giving me the opportunity to experience what it’s like to start a business.  I hope to be a successful investor and businessman someday.  Thank you, Junior Achievement, for giving me and my peers this great opportunity.

I was fortunate to be a partaker of yesterday’s workshop at MIT, where I got the chance to hear from speakers with Junior Achievement.  I heartily appreciate your presentation; it was really awesome, especially when you talked about ‘positive attitude.’ I was shocked when I heard that three out of four young employees are fired due to lack of ‘positive attitude.’  Thank you for enlightening me.

I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to teach us the valuable skills in the workplace.  Thank you for giving us directions on what to do and what not to do at an interview.  I was amused by your visual examples by acting it out in skits.  I felt like I’ve learned so much, thank you.
