On October 10, 2018, Shruti Dhawan, President of SmartPayroll Solutions (SPS), spoke at The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science, and Technology. Her focus was on the importance of internships.

Ms. Dhawan believes schools and universities are doing an excellent job teaching students how to think, but they tend to leave a gap when it comes to preparing students for the workplace. She fosters a learning environment at SPS and offers internships regularly, to help fill that gap.

Students and their communities benefit from internships such as those offered at SPS and Ms. Dhawan encourages all business owners to participate and contribute whenever possible. It is her philosophy that if you own or are in a lead role in running a business, you have valuable experience to share.
