In addition to working as a liaison between businesses and students, the Career and Personal Development Office develops personal connections with BVU students.
"Interns can be a supportive asset to any company looking for additional help within their workforce," said Kristi Davis, assistant director of career and personal development and internship coordinator at BVU. "They provide new insight and can assist with completing larger projects."
Coffee and light refreshments will be served at the event, with remarks to follow from Berglund and Davis.
