Hostos Community College hosted the Student Leadership Showcase held on April 23, 2018 at it’s Savoy Multi-purpose Room in Bronx, New York. More than 40 students from Hostos and Lehman College member institutions, participated of this event. The main purpose was to promote the access to free of charge online student services that can support their academic goals, and be able to share their interests and needs to help us create additional support services. This time students also learned about how to maximize the use of digital identity and social media to support their academic and professional goals.
Dr. David Gómez, President, Hostos Community College (CUNY)
The event started with a warm welcome message from the host, Dr. David Gómez, President at Hostos Community College. After his remarks, Ms. Yubelkys Montalvo, HETS Executive Director, presented Ms. Débora Menieur, HETS Student Ambassador, who shared a live demonstration of HETS student services at the HETS portal and the Student Placita. During this demonstration, students had the opportunity to learn where to find information about scholarships, internships, job search, practice of standardized tests, online tools and careers tips, among other services provided by HETS.
The event continued with the speech of Mr. Marcelo Rodríguez, Digital Transformation Leader at DMP Group, about the Personal Branding during the Digital Age. During his presentation, Rodríguez emphasized on the importance of leveraging your personal brand or professional reputation to improve your chances towards the career you want. Attendees had the opportunity to learn how to take control of their digital visibility, identifying what makes them stand out, and then telling a unique story during recruitment.
As an added value to the event, students were able to network with peers who share same interests, while HETS Executive Director learned more about their interests and needs in order to further collaborate on exploring solutions and create innovative support services. The event concluded with a raffle of prizes among the participants, and the completion of the evaluation form distributed to receive the feedback of the event and the online services presented. HETS would like to make a special recognition to the support and help of the Hostos Community College personnel, especially President Gómez and his office staff including Jewel Clarke, Dolly Martínez and Diana Kramer for their collaboration. HETS also recognizes Mr. Nelson Ortiz, Conference Center Coordinator; Carlos Guevara; and Johanna Gómez for all coordination and promotion of the event.
