Rachel Halder of Storm Lake is spending the month of January working for the Camelback Inn Marriott Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. as part of the 2001 January Interim Business Internship Program at Buena Vista University.
BVU's January Interim session takes place between the fall and spring semesters and is designed to provide a unique learning experience by allowing students to spend nearly four weeks studying a single topic of interest.
The business internship is an intensive work experience related to the student's academic major in business. Students are placed in selected businesses that allow students to become involved in day-to-day operations and gain valuable hands-on experience.
Halder is the daughter of Bill and Lynette Halder of Storm Lake and is a junior, majoring in management-entrepreneurship at BVU.
