Meet the Intern: Emily Combs

Greetings!

I’m Emily, the Outreach Intern here at Indiana INTERNnet this summer. I feel grateful and excited for the opportunity to spend the next several months promoting experiential learning in my home state!

I’m originally from Fort Wayne, where I attended Homestead High School and had my first internship experiences as a senior there. I really appreciate the freedom I had to gain professional experience before college, and that’s a major part of why I’m so excited about joining the Indiana INTERNnet team now. This is my fifth formal internship, so I guess you could say it’s a passion! Last summer I was a part-time intern at an Indianapolis nonprofit called Tangram and at Prudential’s Indiana Financial Group. My time in both companies taught me how to apply what I had been learning in the classroom to actual projects and problems.

TransWorks: Making an IMPACT

Indiana INTERNnet celebrated internship excellence on Feb. 3, 2016, at the 10th Annual IMPACT Awards luncheon. Though the event is over and the winners have been announced, we are continuing to celebrate the nominees’ successes.

These are their stories.

TransWorks was a great internship experience. The atmosphere at TransWorks is very welcoming. Everyone is friendly and willing to help, and I felt like I could talk to anyone in the office.

They also keep you involved with the company by inviting you to watch their softball games, join them for lunch, or go to TinCaps game with them. It was a far better experience than I ever imagined my first internship would be like, and I am extremely grateful for that.

TransWorks gave me the option of what kind of work I could do for them when I first began. I could either do something easy or something hard. …
