Hiring an Intern

Hosting VSB interns &/or partnering with the O’Donnell Center to offer a CoOp program is mutually beneficial for employers and students. Employers gain from the wealth of business knowledge and energy that VSB students can provide in a professional setting, while students are afforded the opportunity to test their skills and gather valuable insight into career interests, professional aspirations, and personal values.
