Free Internship Program Set for Oct. 10

An internship-matching program to help easily connect employers with qualified interns is planned for Friday, Oct. 10 at the Lindenwood Retreat & Conference Center on the campus of Ancilla College in Donaldson.

Jennifer Fisher, a training and recruitment specialist with Group Dekko, will share experiences with interns and explain the return on investment of a quality internship. Indiana INTERNnet Executive Director Janet Boston will take program attendees through the process of using a free online searchable database that allows employers connect with an intern that can best fit the company’s workforce needs. Amanda Stanley, director of program relationships for the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, will outline a program that can help employers fund paid internships with qualifying students.

This effort is through a partnership with Ancilla College, Calumet College, Saint Joseph’s College and Valparaiso University, along with the Center of Workforce Innovations and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.

The program is free. You are encouraged to RSVP by Wednesday, Oct. 8 by calling Andrea Evans at (219) 313-1462 or

The event begins Friday, Oct. 10 at 8:15 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. ET.
