Some internship fairs can get too hot, too awkward and just all-around exhausting. That is why Indiana INTERNnet is so excited to host another online internship fair! This experience serves as a great way for students to network and learn about so many amazing opportunities out there. Now is a great time to start looking at positions for spring, summer or fall. If you were on the edge about signing up, I have some reasons as to why you should join us for the fair.
How to get started
Make an IndianaINTERN.net account and complete your profile on CareerEco. This profile allows you to upload your resume, add your education background and indicate when you are looking to intern. Setting up your profile beforehand can allow for employers to look at your resume before the fair even begins.
How it works
The fair will take place from 10 a.m. – …
Join Indiana INTERNnet at its second online internship fair on October 30! The event takes place virtually through CareerEco which means you will be able to connect with students around the state from the comfort of your office. It is the perfect opportunity to find your next spring, summer or even fall 2020 interns!
Like a traditional internship/career fair, employers can connect directly with potential interns. However, unlike a traditional fair, everything takes virtually place within a chat room. Registered employers have their own chat room with the option to host private text, video or audio chat sessions.
Here are some more benefits of the online internship fair:
Eliminate travel costs and costs associated with ordering promotional items
Since the fair takes place online, there are absolutely no travel costs associated with attending. Employers can take part in the fair from their home, office, coworking space, coffee shop, anywhere!
Travel isn’t the …
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.
Join Indiana INTERNnet and the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE) in celebrating Indiana’s interns! Gov. Holcomb has officially recognized July 25 as Indiana Intern Day. The occasion is modeled after National Intern Day – a movement to honor interns and the employers that provide meaningful internship opportunities.
This day is primarily social media-focused, but if you want to give your interns a break, Indiana INTERNnet and the CHE will host a casual intern meet-up at the Statehouse Market in Indianapolis from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You can purchase lunch from food trucks and other local vendors. Employers: Send your interns to show them your appreciation. Interns: Network with your peers!
Can’t make it to Indianapolis? Acknowledge your interns by using #INinternday on social media. Complete this pledge form. It’s free to participate. We’ll send you downloadable content to start your Intern Day celebration off right!
Indiana INTERNnet hosts intern engagement activities around the Indianapolis area. However, it’s important to note that there are summer intern events happening all throughout the state. Know the events in your area, and above all, make an effort to network. You can still enjoy your summer days and make your internship memorable!
