Dr. Carrie Shandra (Stony Brook Univ)

Dr. Carrie Shandra’s discussed her recent research on employer demand for interns, and the types of skills they are seeking in college interns. CCWT Director Matthew Hora and Dr. Shandra also talked about how the Great Recession impacted employers’ demand for interns, and then audience members can ask questions.

Dr. Shandra’s research is broadly focused on understanding work and life course inequalities in the United States, particularly as they occur during the transition to adulthood and among individuals with disabilities. Her research on work includes both paid employment and other forms of productivity that may not be compensated in the market – including care work, housework, and volunteering.
