At Vog, mentorship and learning are a key part of our company culture. Offering internships to local post secondary students is an important part of facilitating mentorship in the broader community and provides university students with a variety of backgrounds to gain real life experience. One of the students that Vog onboarded this semester was Jeffrey Liu, a 4th year student at the University of Calgary studying Business and Technology Management. When Vog offered Jeffrey a chance to join the team for an internship, he knew immediately that Vog was the place for him.
We spoke with Jeffrey about his experience with Vog to share with all of you.
