"So either an article is inadequate, there's limited information or there's no article on the subject that they're interested in. It’s tempting to laugh off Berik’s idea. "It's not going to end up in the dust bin at the end of the semester, or in a drawer,” Berik told KSL.

The model, under which Gavidia worked as an apprentice at the company while taking on-campus courses, gave him a huge head start to a job by teaching him the real-world skills employers want but say they often can’t find in college graduates.
