Student Joseline Garcia shines in PNC Bank internship

August 21, 2020


Joseline Garcia, a senior information technology and digital media major, participated in PNC Bank’s first virtual summer internship program from June 1 to July 31. She worked in the company’s SST-Innovation unit doing design work for their “Digital Workspace” project. Said Joseline in an interview for the PNC Enable Monthly Bulletin for August, “My work environment here at PNC has been nothing but amazing! I am so excited to expand my skills in a professional environment.”

Asked how her team supported her, Joseline said, “I am so impressed with PNC’s values and stance on accessibility. I am able to have an interpreter for all meetings. My team has been patient and willing to type in the chat box if an interpreter doesn’t show up or we have a last-minute meeting. Also, they are willing to turn on their webcam so we can see each other and our facial and body language. It is important for me to have eye contact and understand their body language. I have learned so much during my internship as well as learning to use some great tools to expand my User Interface/User Experience skills.”

Joseline expects to graduate in December. She hopes to find a job related with accessibility, Human Computer Interaction (HCI), or User Interface/User Experience.

Anjali Desai-Margolin, ’87 & G-’92, Career Consultant in the Career Center, says that Joseline was recruited for this opportunity in September 2019 during the Second Annual Information Technology Summit. This was the first time PNC ever hosted Gallaudet interns. “In fact, they hired two IT interns for the virtual experience this summer,” says Desai-Margolin. “Joseline was also one of our Disability:IN NextGen Leaders and she attended the virtual Disability:IN conference earlier this summer.”

Says Dr. Thomas P. Horejes, Associate Provost for Student Success and Academic Quality, “Joseline’s story captures the hard work by Anjali Desai-Margolin and our Career Center staff, through their deep networks such as DIsability:IN, and hosting our Technology Summit. These are just some examples of the great stories and post-graduation outcomes that our Career Center continues to produce.”
