LVEDC presents the 2nd Annual Internship Summit, which will be held virtually on Thursday, September 10th and Thursday, September 17th at 10AM.

This year, LVEDC, the Education and Talent Supply Council, and Lehigh Valley colleges and universities have lined up knowledgeable presenters who will share their expertise, successes, and stories with other members of the Lehigh Valley community who are looking to engage their future workforce through internships.  Timely topics include how to create and manage remote internship programs and how to engage and recruit top interns.
