Sarah B. Garcia
Career Development Specialist, Office of Career Services, York College (The City University of New York)
I advocate for experiential learning as the gateway to bridging academic knowledge to market-place readiness. I also conduct career counseling sessions, workshops, and liaise with a network of employers. Most of the adults that I assist are younger than me, but I have the privilege of facilitating progress for those my age and beyond,as well.
The heft of the advice in this blog derives from my own painful wounds, now healed. The rest is plundered from my mentors, or from privy information as a result of surveying employers. I have also done some simple research, and corroborated it for accuracy.
My background also includes being an English teacher, an adjunct professor - for an upper-level career development course, and an introvert.
