For the past 40 years, College Pro Painters has built a successful establishment with a trusted reputation by teaching college and university students how to build and run successful businesses, providing these students with the opportunity to become entrepreneurs, develop crucial real-world skills that can be used in any future career, and build an impressive resume.
While working with College Pro, these student entrepreneurs are in charge of managing all aspects of a small business, from the marketing and advertising to hiring the right staff. Along the way, College Pro Painters supports each student entrepreneur with ongoing one-on-one coaching and support to help each student achieve success.
If these student entrepreneurs choose College Pro Painters as their platform to jump into the business world and start their own company outside of College Pro Painters, they will be able to use the skills they learned at College Pro and apply them to their next venture. A great example of a College Pro success is Cameron Herold, a former franchisee who spent three summers with College Pro. He then went on to become the Chief Operating Officer of 1-800-GOT-JUNK (a successful junk removal company) and later started his own company called BackPocket COO.
Another huge benefit for these college and university students is the impressive resumes that working in the College Pro Painters system will help build. After graduation, most companies want to hire grads with experience, but many don’t hire students right out of college because they feel a new graduate might lack the skills and experience to do the job right. However, working with College Pro Painters gives these students the understanding and know-how they need to give them a leg up in the competitive business world.
One happy College Pro student discussed his experience with the company by stating; “I discovered who I really was, found my strengths and weaknesses, put myself through challenges with different objectives, gained self-confidence and learned to expect more from myself.”
College Pro Painters gives young, driven entrepreneurs the chance to get started now. The company sets these students up with everything they need to know in order to run a successful business, and entrusts the business in their hands, while also providing ongoing one-on-one coaching and support along the way. These students gain more than a job, they gain life-long skills that they will be able to use and apply to their every day lives from here on out.
