Nakia Barriteau, Anne Arundel Community College’s new internship coordinator, is seeking businesses, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to participate in the college’s internship program.
Barriteau has a bachelor’s degree from Hampton University and a master’s degree from the University of Baltimore. She discovered her niche of linking people with opportunities when she worked with middle school girls while studying for her master’s degree at University of Baltimore.
“I developed a passion for helping people to recognize their potential and achieve their goals,” she said.
Barriteau comes to AACC from the Covenant House in Washington, D.C., where she was a senior employment development specialist. She also worked at the District of Columbia/Northern Virginia Transition Services Office of Job Corps and the Family and Children’s Services of Central Maryland. As part of her responsibilities, she connected teens, young adults and older adults re-entering the workplace with internships and jobs. She assessed job and work readiness skills and prepared job seekers with mock interviews and résumé reviews.
She is looking forward to working with employers in this community. To participate in AACC’s internship program, visit www.aacc.edu/internships.
