INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana is celebrating the impact of internships and work-based learning opportunities on the state’s workforce and the K-12 and higher education landscape during the third annual Indiana Intern Day on Thursday, July 29.
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education, in partnership with Indiana INTERNnet, is encouraging employers to take to social media and other virtual mediums to celebrate and recognize interns and meaningful internship experiences.
“The International Center highly values each intern for the skills and education they bring to The Center in our effort to stay abreast of the latest business techniques and processes,” said Garth Eberhart, Chief Operating Officer of The International Center. “They help us more quickly adapt to our everchanging world by sharing what they’ve learned in their classroom and community experiences.”
Modeled after National Intern Day, the Commission and Indiana INTERNnet are encouraging employers, educators, and intern supervisors to fill out this pledge form to recognize interns on Indiana Intern Day. Those who pledge will be sent a digital media kit to use to show how they are celebrating interns on social media. Follow along by using the hashtag #INInternDay.
