Student Reflects on Value of EOW Course and Internship

March 17, 2017 | Academics, Career Development, Experiential Learning

First-year Guttman student Onasis Cirineo reflects on the importance of the Ethnographies of Work (EOW) course, his work with Guttman’s United Men of Color (U-MOC) program, and his internship at the New York City Employment & Training Coalition (NYCETC) in a blog for NYC Workforce Weekly published March 15.

For his fall EOW career paper requiring ethnographic research be conducted on a career of interest, Onasis wanted to learn more about social justice and advocacy. He completed research at the NYCETC.  His research paper led to an internship during Fall II at the Coalition where he was able to connect his U-MOC work with the Coalition at their policy forum.

NYC Workforce Weekly is distributed to all the leading employment, training and educational organizations in the city.  Onasis’s piece illustrates how the EOW career paper can make a dramatic difference in a student’s career path and mindset. Also featured in the March 15 issue of NYC Workforce Weekly is an article about the Guttman students who visited the Coalition as part of the 2017 Winter Bridge program.
