Career Readiness Program

Presented by Oscar Garcia, Chief Empowerment Officer of Aspira Consulting

As first-generation or minority students, our experiences and challenges are different; we are bicultural, multiracial, and encounter the glass ceiling, lack of mentorship, and the opportunity gap. Aspira Consulting provides culturally relevant, practical, and personalized career development and leadership programs that helps first-generation and minority students embrace their uniqueness and are their authentic self. As a first-generation professional, Oscar Garcia has successfully overcome career pitfalls, blended his professional and bicultural identity, and today empowers others, so opportunities come to them.

This 5-part virtual career series builds upon each previous training. Students will receive a Professional Development Certificate if they attend all five sessions.
