Jackie Javier, Manager of Work-Based Learning at Pasadena City College, returns to the podcast to share what she and her team has done to create opportunities during the pandemic. Summer is the most popular and often the only time a student has to get the all important internship. But this last summer, almost all internships shut down. Jackie and her team made the pivot and started working in overdrive to create programs, fairs, and panels that jump started employment and internship opportunities. They focused on helping historically marginalized student groups to close the equity gap and build infrastructure that tracks. Listen in to hear all that the Work-Based Learning team has done to empower their students and connect with employers in the age of Covid-19.
