How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Workforce Development & Education Lead ,


My work revolves around partnering with educational institutions to have a meaningful effect on our workforce. I support our internship program, through which we partner with universities to bring talent here for internships. I spend time getting to know what those students are doing every day to make an impact and how I can share their stories. I also work with our high school graduate apprenticeship program, which lets students start working with Tesla while still pursuing their education.

My days vary. I may be traveling to different school districts or meeting with community partners in other states. My day could be spent preparing for one of those trips. I may be in the office collaborating with colleagues to make sure our trainings are ready to go. I could also be working remotely from home.
