Meet Other Interns

Interns at Eaton Corporation Summer 2013Promoting internship opportunities and creating a network of interns working in the Corridor region each year is an important strategy of our workforce initiative.  The Iowa Lakes Corridor began promoting internships and offered workshops to area employers in creating internships within their companies in 2007.  It has been exciting to see the number of internships offered each year continue to grow and grow and grow.

Having an intern within our organization has also given us a good perspective as to what else could be done to ensure interns have a good experience.  We began an intern e-newsletter in the summer of 2013, organized special events for them (as many were not from this area), and extended invitations for other regional events to help expand their network of area business and community leaders. 

If your company has internship opportunities or has an intern on staff, please contact us at the Iowa Lakes Corridor Development Corporation; we will help promote the internship or add the intern to our contact list for the newsletter and events.  Any internship openings will be posted on our Corridor Jobs page.  Offering internships is a great way to introduce young people to our region and to increase the potential candidate pool for your company.
