Career Advice From The Vice President of Communications and Operations

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to interview a current employee of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. Tom Schuman is the Senior Vice President of Communications and Operations for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. We asked him about his previous work experiences and how it prepared him for his career.

 

 

Indiana INTERNnet: What is your current position and what do you do?

Tom Schuman: I’m the Senior VP of Communications and Operations. I know it sounds like an intense title, but it isn’t! Communications is broad because there are many things you do.

Meet the Intern: Makayla Walke

Hello! My name is Makayla Walke, but I mostly go by Kayla. I am very excited to be Indiana INTERNnet’s summer intern for 2019. I just finished my freshman year at Marian University, where I am currently studying marketing.

It was a big change moving to Indianapolis and experiencing traffic that was not just from an oversized tractor on the road. I love being in the city so far and can see myself living here in the future.

My previous work experiences include small summer jobs like being a slide monitor at a local pool and making pizzas at a Pizza King. My job I had throughout high school was at an Ace Hardware. I loved each one of these …
