Hilda provides career coaching for ALA alumni and the individuals in the Mastercard Foundation Scholars program.

Hilda works extensively with employers around the continent and world to identify young talent to fit their recruiting needs. Through the relationships Hilda maintains and manages, she connects individuals who are part of the ALA alumni and Mastercard Foundation Scholars networks to potential career opportunities. Hilda provides career coaching for some of the students including reviewing resumes, reviewing cover letters, and sharpening interview skills. She helps identify the gaps in career growth and develops programming to meet those needs. Some of this programming includes co-organizing Barazas and ACN’s peer coach program across different campuses.
