#ADULTING Students Employers

Employer Resources


We are thrilled that you are interested in providing an impactful experience for one of our students within your business/company/organization. We believe  the  "hands-on" learning experience is an extremely important method of development. With your partnership we are confident it will be a win/win and all of us will benefit from the opportunity you are creating. 

Before providing an opportunity to a BHSU student it is important that we determine what type of opportunity it is you want to provide. Each opportunity involves a variety of requirements/expectations from not only the employer but also the student.
