It’s currently my favorite season and I know a lot of others’ around the office. The air is crisp, closets are in need of an upgrade, and the leaves are changing. While a lot of these blogs are based on tips and advice when navigating the workplace as an intern, we are still young which means we need to have some fun every once in a while. Indiana has some really fun activities that you can do throughout the fall. I thought I would do the research for you and create a list of everything you need to do this fall.
You’re welcome in advance.

Last week Indiana INTERNnet hosted the final Summer Engagement Event of the summer at the Indiana State Fair. The event allowed interns from all over the state to come and network while enjoying an iconic Indiana event. It was a day full of networking, prizes, games, and a lot of fun.

She also talked about how helpful they can be when trying to find what the future holds. Mary’s current area of study is in a science-based field, but her internship is in HR. She highlighted that there are still many learning opportunities with internships that can be used in any career path.

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.
