Hi again! I am so excited to announce that I am back on the Indiana INTERNnet team for the summer! If you remember my name, then you know I was an intern last year through the summer and fall semesters. I am now back as the interim Program Assistant. It’s good to be back!
The current COVID-19 pandemic impacted many internships around the state. Regardless of the circumstances, Indiana employers aren’t letting this stop professional development events from happening virtually! With the cancellation of in-person events, employers throughout Indiana are still making an effort to prepare the state’s future workforce. Interns are able to attend these free events from the comfort of their own home and learn from career professionals in a wide range of areas. Between understanding personal branding and learning how to utilize LinkedIn, young professionals can use these opportunities to understand and develop new skills.
While these experiences may be different, they’re still a great way to utilize this time to grow personally and professionally.
Last year Indiana INTERNnet and other employers throughout the state hosted a handful of amazing professional development events throughout the summer. These virtual events are a great way to learn and expand your internship experience from anywhere in the state! With events on subjects like financial literacy, implicit biases in the workplace, and understanding your strengths, interns can utilize these great resources to aid in the preparation of their future.
If you were able to attend any events last year or read previous blog posts, you know the importance of taking these small steps to grow within your position.
