College-to-Career Initiatives Benefitting Students

My College to Career projects focus on preparing undergraduate students for meaningful careers. These projects are an extension of my teaching and service at Texas A&M University-San Antonio where I serve as an associate clinical professor of Communication.

Federal Experiment on Private-Sector Work-Study

The U.S. Department of Education created an initiative in 2020 that allows more students to gain on-the-job experience with employers in their field of study as part of their Federal Work-Study (FWS) program. The initiative, known as an experimental site, will allow the group of institutions to pay low-income students for work experiences required by their academic programs, such as student teaching and clinical rotations. The initiative is aimed at gathering more data to see if students are better served by being able to get work-study experience off-campus related to their field of study.

My Role: I serve as a faculty representative to help Texas A&M-San Antonio select work experimental work sites.
Collaborators: U.S. Department of Education, Mays Center for Experiential Learning & Community Engagement

Hired Professional Development Certificate

HIRED! Student Professional Development

The HIRED! Professional Development Certificate, designed by the Mays Center for Experiential Learning, help students at Texas A&M University-San Antonio engage in their own professional development. The certification program is based on research collected by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and factors employers say they look for when hiring and retaining talented recruits.

My role:
Curriculum Development: I created a 1-credit hour seminar for Communication majors that bridges with the Mays’ Center certification program.  In this fast-track two week seminar, I provide one-on-one career advising in students’ fields of interests.

Virtual Internship Access Project

My research examines semester-long virtual internships to evaluate the academic quality and professional benefit for traditionally underserved college students. While there is ample research and literature on improving internship quality and structure, there is a lack of focus on specific considerations for historically underserved and first-in-family students, including internship availability and access during the pandemic.

My Role: Principal Investigator
Funder: Research fellowship funding provided by Texas A&M University-San Antonio’s College of Arts & Sciences
