Why INTERNSHIPS?

STEM InternshipsIf you are wondering why internships are important; the reasons are many!

First and foremost – Employers value internships!

Whether you are a Freshman, Sophomore, Junior or Senior attending a HBCU, internships should be a part of your college experience and your long term career strategy.

Whether the company or your college or university career center calls this kind of college work experience a Co-op or an Internship — it doesn’t matter. What should matter are the benefits you will get from the co-op or internship experience.

Here are just some of the ways that internship help college students:

  • Explore a career or an industry from the inside.
  • Develop industry-specific abilities.
  • Gain real industry knowledge and insight to bring back to classes.
  • Build a professional network of contacts including mentors and sponsors.
  • Master the job search process.
  • Get a full time career offer even before graduation. In fact, most employers consider internship experience in the hiring process, and look to their own interns as the best potential candidates for full-time positions.  In 2017 the rate of conversion from intern to regular employer was 56%.  So you can complete your internship in August of one year and receive a job offer to return after graduation the following year.

Update on College Debt for Black Graduates

Black Graduate DebtBoth Senator Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren are making bold statements about investments in HBCU’s and the student debt burden on black college graduates.  Senator Harris, a graduate of Howard University, is proposing to cap student debt interest payment at 3.5% while Senator Warren is proposing a $50 billion investment into institutions designated as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

Although college debt is high across the board, graduates who are Black and Hispanic, have disproportionately higher debt.

The following is a list of the statistics driving the attention on college debt for black  graduates from various sources.  Additionally, there are some resources to learn more and think strategically about how to manage the college debt.

Debt for Black Graduates

1) 86.8% of black students borrow federal student loans to attend 4-year public colleges, as opposed to 59.9% of white students.  (Source – National Center for Education Statistics (NCES))

2) Americans (4 million of them) owe over $1.48 trillion in student loan debts.  (Source – National Center for Education Statistics (NCES))

3) Black students borrow federal student loans at higher rates than other groups of students.  (Source – National Center for Education Statistics (NCES))

4) An estimated 77.7% of black students borrow federal student loans to pay for a higher education. This figure is significantly higher than the national average for all students (60%) and for white students (57.5%). (Source – National Center for Education Statistics (NCES))

5) Among black students who started school in 2003, 50% defaulted on student loans within the following 12 years.  For Hispanics it was 36.1% and whites it was 21.5% of students.  (Source – National Center for Education Statistics (NCES))

6) When race is factored in, black college graduates owe — on average — $7,400 more than their white peers, and that number is expected to more than triple to $25,000 in the next few years. (Source: Brookings Institute)

7) A 2016  also found that a higher percentage of students at HBCUs — 80 percent — used federal loans to pay for college compared to 55 percent of students not attending an HBCU.  (Source: United Negro College Fund (UNCF) report)

8) It also found that a higher percentage of students — 12 percent — at HBCUs combine federal, state and private loans to finance their education, compared to 8 percent of non-HBCU students. (Source: United Negro College Fund (UNCF) report)

Managing Debt for Black Graduates

The team at U.S. News & World Report recently created a series guide that breakdowns the different types of student loans and available repayment options, how they work and what students should know before considering them.  They have shared the research with us and we are sharing those links here to help you manage your student loan debt!

Start thinking about how to manage your private student loans and loan consolidation.  It’s not too early!

HBCU Career Center Staff and Faculty Partnerships

Career Center Staff and FacultyWhy should there be well established career services faculty partnerships on college campuses?  Because both groups of professionals are, in most cases,  deeply committed to student success. Working together, faculty and HBCU career center staff support successful transitions for undergraduate or graduate students into the workforce.

Here are a few examples of career center staff and faculty partnerships that could work to support students.

Partnership Opportunities

  • Faculty can invite career center staff to conduct workshops during classes. If faculty have to be absent from campus, instead of cancelling class invite career center staff to meet with the class at the already scheduled class time.
  • Faculty can encourage students by awarding extra credit assignments to participate in career center activities such as career and internship fairs or career workshops.
  • Faculty should make their research interests known to career services staff who can facilitate connections with potential industry partners.
  • Faculty should be open to hosting industry professionals in their classrooms and for discussion panels or speaker events.  Employers are usually very impressed by college career centers that have good partnerships with faculty.
  • Faculty should refer students to career centers for the latest, current and relevant information on how students can professionally transition from college to work successfully.
  • Faculty and career center staff should both encourage conversations with students about their future goals. Faculty are aware that not all college undergrads want to go to graduate schools and often refer those students directly to career services staff.
  • Faculty and staff must be able to speak about industry employment trends with students as well.  Career services often have access to industry data impacting employment and can definitely be a resource for faculty with industry data.
  • Faculty can identify alumni and employers who want to come to campus and participate through seminars or career center activities such as On-Campus-Recruiting.
  • Faculty can definitely work with career centers to develop graduate school resources for students.
  • Faculty members can serve on advisory boards for career centers.

Career Resources for Faculty and Staff :

There are many HBCU Career Centers that provide career development services to faculty and staff at their universities.  This is important because it is well known that faculty and staff that are committed to their own personal professional development are better able to assist students reach their goals.

Here are a few faculty career resources that career centers may have access to or collaborate to cost share for organizational membership.

20 Pieces of REAL Advice for a College Freshman

From the desk of the Dean…(Updated for the Class of 2023)

College Freshmen AdviceIn a few weeks, summer will end and you will become a college freshman.  You won’t be alone. Thousands of new college freshmen will file onto college campuses and populate college residence halls.

Most college students will enter college with tons of advice from parents, teachers and college counselors.

With all the advice out there, it is hard for college students to separate the advice that will lead to long term success.

If you are a new college freshman or know one, let me share with you my 20 favorite tips with real advice. These tips are not just based on my own college experience or that of my kids, but are the result of 18 years in higher education, working with college students.
Not all of these tips will apply to every new college student. Usually I advice students to select 5 to 10 that will fit on a note card or 8 x 11 sheet of paper.

Keep those 5 to 10 accessible and work on them one at a time.

Real Tips for College Freshmen

1. You don’t have as much free time as you think you do! If you find you have time to burn; something is probably wrong. There is something you should be doing and you probably need to get help figuring out what that is ad how to manage your time.

2. Keep in mind that you write your resume every day, with every action and every choice you make. Yes. you are just starting out, but after being in four college career centers and running The HBCU Career Center for a decade, I know this – If you haven’t done it by the time you get to graduation; it can’t end up in your resume.  So having a resume ready to apply for internships, jobs, scholarships or grad schools is an early priority in your college life.

3. Begin good career habits early! Find your campus career center in the first semester and follow them on Twitter or Instagram for relevant career, major, job search and internship information.  Follow us too on Twitter (@HBCUCareerCntr) and IG (the_hbcu_career_center).  Remember, this is why you are on campus.  Get career ready!

Presidents Must Support Career Centers4. Do some personal exploration to learn more about who you are. Don’t leave college without knowing your V.I.S.A. (Values, Interests, Skills and Abilities).  I have worked with too many college graduates who fear the next steps because they have no idea what their V.I.S.A. is and what these things mean to them. Exploring these things will make the college experience way more valuable.

5. Plan to participate in at least one Internship, Study Abroad, Alternative Spring Break, Volunteer or Campus Leadership experience the summer after your freshman year.  There are three things I think every college student must do to create a competitive resume: Internship, leadership and an international trip.

6. No matter how big the class will be; a professor can still know you by name, if you participate in class, ask questions and/or go to office hours.  It is never an excuse to say the class is too big for my professor to know and care about me.

7. Find and use these study-resources on campus – Academic Advising office, First-Year Experience Program and/or Writing Center.  Yes. Everyone knows where the Financial Aid and Student Accounts offices are, but these other offices are just as important to keep you in good academic standing.  You might have to seek them out.

8. College freshman year is FULL of decision-making points. Take responsibility for your own actions and learn how to make decisions.  Can’t stress this enough.  Offices like Judicial Affairs, Campus Police or Title IX exist for a reason.  They are about keeping students safe.  However, they can’t be everywhere.  You must make good decisions.

9. Find wise people to have conversations with and ask questions.  It’s super tempting to hang around with just your new roommates or people in your major.  Think broader.  The world will need more interdisciplinary thinkers so don’t stay in a cocoon.

10. Keep connected with your off-campus support group. All those people who helped you get to college are still available for you. Don’t keep challenges to yourself.  It is great to handle things on your own as a sign of maturity, but please, please know you have a ton of supporters back home.

11. Don’t be worried if you change your major.  Don’t panic and most of all, tell your parents not to panic. Most college students change majors. However, the smart thing to do is to get advice on how to do it.  Don’t sit in the wrong major for too long. Your GPA, your finances and your psyche could really suffer.

career center12. Don’t jump into career decisions. Think more about what you want to DO when you graduate, instead of what you want to BE. The career direction you ultimately choose might not even exist now.  There is so much unfolding in the future of work, keep an open mind.  Get email alerts from our internship board so you know what is out there!

13. Watch your social media habits. Keep your reputation online positive. Like never before, YOU are responsible for your own brand. A good name is a good thing to have, easy thing to lose and the hardest thing to get back. College campuses get really small when your reputation is destroyed.  Lots of social media activity – stalking, drinking – ends up in the Dean’s office.

14. Do all you can to develop your teamwork skills, your communication skills and your ability to analyze situations. Not only are these skills that employers really look for in new graduates, these are just great skills to develop for “adulting” purposes.

15. Expect to feel overwhelmed sometimes. Whether you are living on campus or living at home; The college freshman year will bring a lot of changes.  I mean a lot of changes.  For many, it is the first time away from home, managing your own schedule and making choices at this level.  Counseling services is there for you!

16. Make good choices about how to spend your money.  In some ways, the semester will fly by really quick.  In other ways, it will seem to drag on.  Being broke in college is a reality for a lot of people. If there is any kind of program for college spending – take one early.

17. Make good choices about the food you consume.  Yes. I think some college students think about alcohol like food and I am here to tell you that being sick at school is no joke.

18. Read your syllabus and know when things are due. Mid-terms will come before you know it.

19. Time management MUST become a priority. Use tools like day-planner, stop watch on your telephone or alarm to keep you focused on priorities.  Ask your Alexa, your Siri or whatever personal bot you use to help you stay on task.

20. “Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.” Keep this as one of the mantras you try to live by as you discover your way through college.   I love to see these positive stories about students who live together and ultimately graduate medical school together or reach a goal together.  That is rare. Pick your “ride-or-die” team members carefully!

Robert Smith Jr. Shocks Morehouse College Graduates

Robert F. Smith Jr.

It has been a phenomenal graduating season for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

Every year at this time, these campuses come alive with tired but excited students and university faculty and staff who have worked hard to get their graduates ready.  Stages overflow with administrators wearing vivid academic regalia reflecting the colors of their disciplines and cords, hoods and bars reflecting their accomplishments.  The stages welcome special guests to be recognized for service to community and society with honorary doctoral awards.  Commencement speakers show up to help give the graduates that one last motivational lecture designed to help them hurdle that big transition from college to real work.

Through this commencement season some of those receiving honorary doctorates include Reverend Al Sharpton from Medgar Evers College, James Prince recognized by Texas Southern University and Sonia Sanchez, poet and activist, recognized by Spelman College

All that is good news. 

Morehouse College graduates showed up today at their commencement expecting more of the same.

Then the great news happened.

Robert F. Smith Jr., technology leader, philanthropist and one of the few Black billionaires in the world, stepped up at Morehouse College ceremony to give a commencement speech and receive an honorary doctoral degree.  Yes, Mr. Smith came to the stage as commencement speaker and honorary doctorate recipient, but he left the stage as a benefactor, pledging a grant to eliminate the student debt of the entire Morehouse College class of 2019.

To say the very least, Mr. Smith is a giver.

Before his generous gift to the Morehouse Men of 2019, he had pledged $50 million to Cornell University, his own alma mater, $20 million to the African American Museum and a $1.5 million gift to Morehouse College earlier in January 2019.

My hope is that his generosity incites rampant action among others of means.

When I say means, I am not assuming that only those of tremendous wealth can give back to the mission of these HBCU institutions that were built to educate the forgotten, the overlooked and the aspirant professionals who could go nowhere else.   I am thinking of the Morehouse Class of 2019 and beyond.  In fact, I am thinking of the entire graduating HBCU class of 2019.  I am sure there are many of the graduates who had not heard of Robert F. Smith Jr. before today.  Well now they have and now they see that kind of generosity, I hope they think about what is possible with the hard work, risk taking and innovative thinking exercised by Mr. Smith.  The saying is that to whom much is given, much is expected; and these Morehouse Men have been given much.   This opportunity of professional and personal growth without the encumbrances of college debt, should be the enabler of good things for all these Morehouse graduating students.

Many of us have given to these schools over the years and will continue to give.  I won’t lie, the significance of this gift does inspire me to look deeper though and think harder about what more I can do and where I can help beyond TheHBCUCareerCenter.com.

In conclusion, I want to say two things about the gift.

First, take note that Mr. Smith did not graduate from a HBCU.  I have often said to people who questioned my giving to HBCUs, that one does not need to suffer from diabetes to give to diabetes research.   I hope this encourages others to see value in these institutions and see them as the engine that drove economic uplift for the Black middle class in America.  Second, please note that Mr. Smith gave a smaller gift to Morehouse in January 2019.  He must have been satisfied with the relationship with the administrators thus far to take this next step.  I am not sure how the gift will be administered, but nevertheless, it certainly demonstrates confidence in the Morehouse mechanism to develop diverse professionals.  As someone who is always thinking about the workforce and professional development angle, this gift could probably draw an even straighter line from the Morehouse campus to Silicon Valley.  All kinds of things are possible.

Yes; Giving begets giving and good stewardship of funds, encourages more giving.  Congrats again to the Morehouse Class of 2019 and know that we as a #HBCU community, are expecting good things from you.

We did before.

That just got amplified!
