The Intern Experience is a new initiative designed to engage college interns with different facets of the community. This seven-week program will help them understand how to get plugged in with the city as young professionals while giving interns a chance to meet and network with other interns from companies around Pitt County. The program will feature one session or activity per week, where interns will enjoy informative guest speakers, networking and learning more about Greenville and how they can model the engagement in their communities after graduation.
The objective of The Intern Experience is to entice our college students to fall in love with Greenville-Pitt County and the companies with which they are interning. The Chamber of Commerce hopes to help emerging leaders learn more about the community beyond the university experience. Through the program, they will learn valuable skills to take with them as they transition from college student to young professionals, meet business professionals from a variety of industries and learn about what makes our community unique.
Following an opening reception on Thursday, May 28, The Intern Experience sessions begin on Wednesday, June 3. There will be (1) one meeting or event per week. The program will wrap up with a graduation ceremony in July that businesses are encouraged to attend with their intern.
Chamber Members - $125 per intern
Non-Members - $175 per intern
Applications will be available March 4 - May 4, 2020.
