As a part of the year-long experience, Bobby worked as an intern in customer experience and accounts receivable. In 2020, Bobby accepted a position as project manager with the North Central Texas Council of Governments where he ensures local transportation providers receive federal funding to provide critical services to those most in need. He believes his experience at DART had a significant role in his career development and helped him develop professional skills for his future endeavors. Congratulations and best of luck, Bobby!


Ray Givens - State Farm

"By participating in the Mavs EDGE program, I received applications from highly qualified applicants. The interns I have hosted from UTA have truly been "self starters". They are prepared well in advance and presented several marketing ideas as soon as they stepped into the office. Their passion and enthusiasm was evident from the very beginning. The support from staff was very helpful and the most beneficial aspect of the experience. By hosting interns at Ray Givens State Farm Agency, we were able to gain a fresh perspective on ways to reach our target audience."

"This opportunity has been instrumental in preparing me for the professional work environment by allowing me to become a confident communicator working with the ER pillar and attending events like Mock Interviews. “I am currently preparing for my final interview at a company and would not have made it this far without the help of the UTA Career Development Center.”
