The Business Development Board and CareerSource Palm Beach County organized the first Palm Beach County Internship Expo, an initiative to connect local talent with local businesses. The expo, held on April 13, 2017, was hosted at Palm Beach State College’s Lake Worth campus. Students from Palm Beach State College, Palm Beach Atlantic University, Florida Atlantic University, Lynn University, Nova Southeastern University and Keiser University attended to gain access to the robust internships available in the county.
Nearly 40 companies with internship opportunities participated with the expectation to hire local talent. Life sciences companies included Modernizing Medicine, KRS Global Biotechnology, Rendina Healthcare and Sancilio & Company to name a few. Palm Beach County invests in one of its major key assets – education. The ultimate goal is to retain the top talent that is already here.
