GCC Prof. Selected for Nationally Renowned Leadership Program

Carnella Hardin, Assistant Department Chair of the GCC Business and Information Technology Department, has been selected to participate in the National Institute for Leadership Development Leaders program in 2005. This year-long program for administrators and faculty in higher education is designed to enhance the skills participants must have to assume major decision-making roles in their institutions. Leaders are chosen for their professional abilities, their interests in advancing higher education and the quality of their proposed projects on which they will work for one year. The NILD is internationally recognized by colleges, universities and businesses for its visionary, holistic programs that produce leaders who effectively challenge assumptions, eliminate barriers and create new pathways to successful solutions.

Need Job Experience? Explore GCC's Internship Program

Getting good job experience through an internship has helped hundreds of students in the Career Work Experience class at Glendale Community College. With a portfolio of more than 600 employers, instructor Diane Taylor matches students to real-world internship experiences that open career possibilities. The CWE class is beneficial for persons of any age eager to acquire new skills, undecided about their career goals, unable to find employment without experience or who want to explore other jobs while still employed. The class meets on campus four times to cover résumé writing, effective interviewing techniques, job search strategies, and how to get an internship. Internships are almost always unpaid, but valuable job experience can be obtained in numerous areas--computers, accounting, marketing, engineering, social work, health care, graphic arts, broadcasting, programming and more. Students then concentrate on their internships at which they can earn one, two, or three credits, depending on how many hours a week they choose to work. According to Taylor, "the CWE class has provided job experience and opened career possibilities for numerous students, and has saved many others from spending time and money in fields they discovered were not for them." Call 623.845.3333 to register for Career Work Experience or contact instructor at or 623.845.3062 for more information.
