Let US Help You Find Your Path to A Career...

Your career choice is important. It should be driven by what you are passionate about. A passion is an intense desire or enthusiasm for something.

What are you passionate about? In order to find what you love to do, you need to gain experience. This will lead you to find a career and other opportunities that steer your passions. 

Getting valuable experience through internships or shadowing professionals can give you more insight into your career choice.
 

An internship is the position of a student or trainee who works in an organization, in order to gain work experience or satisfy requirements for a qualification.

Since the rise of covid it has been harder to find ways to get internships and be safe at the same time. Participating in internships is a great way to ensure that you find something you are passionate about. Here is why:

Benefits of internships:

  • Gaining experience and exploring a certain field of interest to see if you want to build a career in that particular industry.

  • Build your resume.

  • Allows you to be more competitive in the post college hiring process.

  • Leads to better paying full-time positions.

  • Work side by side with industry professionals and understand what an entry-level role will involve.

  • Build your own network of contacts from your fellow interns to seasoned leaders.

  • Spend time working on projects, learning about the field, making industry connections, and developing both hard and soft skills.


 How Internships Work

  • Companies must have different people and cultures, known as diversity and inclusion.

African Americans in Aviation Traveling Museum
National College Resources Foundation has partnered with Chauncey Spencer, Jr. continuing his father Chauncey Spencer Sr.’s legacy creating an African Americans in Aviation Traveling Museum.  The Traveling Museum hit the road traveling 7,000 miles to share history of black aviators like Chauncey Spencer and Dale White who were responsible for convincing Congress to include blacks in the pre-World War II Civilian Pilot Training Program to fight in the war and getting President Truman to integrate the US Air Force. There would be no Tuskegee Airmen, no Red Tails without Mr. Spencer and Mr. White. They paved the way for black pilots and astronauts. See map of the tour below. The tour includes the March on Washington.
