Reviews for Streetwise Partners, Inc.
StreetWise Partners has helped me reinvent myself, access my skills, and change my weaknesses to strengths. They were essential in helping me learn the skills necessary to adapt to this job market. My son became a fellow soon after. He has referred two of his friends, who are active in the program. My nephew also joined SWP in October 2011. I am looking forward to seeing him reach his potential.My advice to someone who is interested in applying for StreetWise Partners would be to evaluate your situation. Decide what your interests are, set your goals, and become dedicated. Do not become idle, success is a choice.
