HARLINGEN — On-the-job training can be a paying experience for business students at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

The Robert C. Vackar School of Business and Entrepreneurship is aggressively promoting the program to both students and potential employers in the Harlingen area.

Last month, UTRGV faculty member Maria Leonard outlined the scope of the program for the Harlingen Economic Development Corp.

“One of the things that our college has developed, which wasn’t in place when we had UTPA (University of Texas-Pan American), is the fact that we are being encouraged to collaborate with the Career Center so we could better serve our students and our employers through internships,” Leonard said.

“Before we were created, we had one career center and one internship coordinator for about 28,000 students,” she said. “It is very hard for one person to serve the needs of so many clients.”
