Engaging First-Generation Students with Micro-Internships
About this session:
First-generation college students face unique challenges as they navigate their internship and job searches. Despite having the same academic pedigree as their second-generation peers (and through no fault of their own) they are often less connected, less aware of career options, and less likely to be familiar with - and consequently to use - the resources available to help them on their journey.
In this session, we discussed how Micro-Internships offer first-generation students an accessible way to explore career options and see for themselves how they can contribute their skills to various organizations. We also heard directly from a company who has hired multiple first-generation Micro-Interns how their organization has benefitted from the drive, perspective, and creative problem solving skills that first-generation students bring to the workforce.
