Buford's Information To Share

Nearly 175 students attended last week’s Internship Showcase ACES event sponsored by the Career & Personal Development Office. Lesa Turnquist, (’15) returned to campus to share how her internship experiences as an Exercise Science-Human Performance major helped lay the foundation for her career as a Fitness Specialist and Personal Trainer with Buena Vista Regional Medical Center’s Fitness & Health Center in Storm Lake.

Students who attended the event also heard from five of their peers: Alec Sindelar (senior majoring in Business with a Marketing concentration) encouraged students to look for variety in internships, having spent the summer with TD Ameritrade and Sport Clips. Sarah Schlichte (senior majoring in Biology) explained how her summer internship with Nebraska Equine Veterinary Clinic helped her realize her passion lies in neuroscience. Manda Clark (senior Accounting and Business) provided examples of how her internships in marketing and human resources confirmed her desire to pursue a career in Accounting. Patrice Crall (senior majoring in Psychology) asked the audience to set aside misconceptions about mental health as she outlined her internship experience with Myrtue Medical Behavioral Health. Zachary Schmidt (senior majoring in Digital Media) admitted he will continue to learn more about career options after interning with AwesomenessTV and Viacom in California. Students were encouraged to stay after the presentations to visit with presenters and faculty. The Internship Showcase ACES event is held each semester to inform students about the importance of “testing out” careers during their time at BVU.
