This past week we held our second Intern Engagement Event of the summer. The event took place at Hilbert Circle Theater in Indianapolis. Before the interns heard the amazing music, they participated in some speed networking. The speed networking allowed for interns and employers to get to know each other in a unique and exciting environment.
After networking, the Indiana INTERNnet team gave out prizes to lucky raffle winners. The interns were then free to go get lunch and prepare for the performance. With a theme like Broadway, there were many happy faces in the audience.
Even after the performance interns met up again to have a Q&A session with some of the ISO’s event and venue staff members. The Q&A was full of amazing questions ranging from how licensing works in the music industry to how the ISO is changing their branding to meet a new desired market.
As an intern it is so much fun going to these events because of the new people I can meet. Everyone there already shares a common interest which is an easy conversation starter. It is also perfect because everyone there is so kind and passionate about what they are doing. It is so refreshing and inspiring to see so many young professionals starting their careers off early.
For those of you who were not able to attend the event, you can check out the newest YouTube video up on our channel.
If you have not had the chance to attend one of Indiana INTERNnet’s events yet there are still some opportunities! We are so excited to hold our first ever Indiana Intern Day with the Commission for Higher Education this summer! You can find more information in Caitlyn’s last blog post or on our social media profiles. Our last event is going to be on August 2nd at the Indiana State Fair! The day is going to be so much fun and full of trivia games, networking, and time to explore the fair. You can register and get more information on Eventbrite.
If you have the chance, I would really encourage everyone to try and make it out to the events. It is an amazing way to meet and network with other interns along with having some time to relax and enjoy your summer.
