This session will explore academia-industry networks and alliances---the one world one network for academia and the industry sector---in the hope of ensuring college graduates’ career readiness. This session will demystify nuances of power, hegemony, ethnocentric behavior, marginalization and discriminatory practices that are perceived to subtly permeate academic-industry practices and alliances involving career networks and on-the-job training (OJT). Critical Theory shall be applied in examining the shared experiences (phenomenology) to uncover practical, theoretical and methodological implications.
The 72nd Annual ICA Conference theme One World, One Network‽ invites reimagining communication scholarship on globalization and networks. The use of the interrobang glyph - a superposition of the exclamation and question punctuation marks – seeks to simultaneously celebrate and problematize the “one-ness” in the theme.
