Last weekendthe Association of Latino Employees, the PCC HSI Title V grantteams: eSTEM, DesignTech, TLC and United States Department of Agriculture Hispanic Serving Institution National Program (housed at Cal State San Bernardino) recently partnered to send a team of 16 PCC students, staff, faculty and administrators to the Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities National Conference in Washington D.C. Seven PCC students participated in the student conference track. We are all full of ideas to implement at PCC to better meet the needs of students and the community.
While we were there we learned about fantastic internship opportunities for students and we convinced the HACU Washington D.C. representative to visit PCC to teach our students how to complete the internship application to increase the likelihood of being selected.
Over the past 20 years HACU has placed nearly 10,000 students from Hispanic Serving Institutions in federal/corporate internships and a couple thousand of these students have obtained full time employment within the federal government!
