Yahoo News (April 28, 2016) - TopLine Federal Credit Union, local member-owned financial services cooperative, teamed up with Osseo Senior High School to provide students with a glimpse of what the career world is all about. Eager students attended the career exploration sessions to learn about business operations and marketing/communications.

During recent career-focused sessions, TopLine employees shared their stories relating to education and career paths, position responsibilities, daily tasks, examples of projects, additional training, keys to success and more. Credit union employees also helped to educate students on what a financial cooperative is, and how credit unions differ from banks. The sessions were interactive with students asking a variety of questions based on interests in the business and financial-related career fields.

"This was a fun opportunity for students to get hands-on information about careers related to business operations and marketing/communications from our neighbors next door," said Michelle Mazanec, College and Career Specialist at Osseo Senior High School. "Exposing students to those in various career fields arms them with knowledge they can use to help with post-secondary school selection, class choices based on career interests, and provides real insight that climbing the career ladder doesn't happen overnight, it takes time and dedication."
