Chamber Members,

It's that time of year again when we come to our members with the opportunity to host an intern for our Spring Internship Program. We partner with FM High School who provides the students and hosts the end of program celebration where 1 student walks away with a $500 prize provided by the Chamber.

We are looking for a variety of businesses/organizations to participate.
Internships will start in March and run for 8 weeks.

  • The intern will meet with the business twice a week for 2 hours a day.
  • The intern will create a display, share their presentation with the audience, and answer questions about their experience.
  • A panel of judges will then assign a score to each intern.

Goal of Intern
The goal of the Intern will be to immerse themselves in the operations of their assigned business and to work on a predetermined project created by the Mentor.

Goal of Mentor
The goal of the Mentor is to introduce their Intern to all aspects of running a business, supervise and guide them through the process of their project.

Projects can range from improving an element of the business process, help with technology, or help create a new part of the business.

If you are interested in participating in our 2018 Spring Internship Program and hosting an Intern please email the chamber office the following information:

Business Name
Contact Name
Contact Email
Contact Phone #
Brief description of project to be worked on (must be manageable in an 8 wk period)
Kim Kutzer, Chairperson of the program, will then contact you to discuss details.

This program is a great opportunity to share some knowledge, be a mentor, and influence a young person on their quest to adulthood.

We would like to congratulate the winner of the 2017 Career Internship Program. Adam Fox, who interned with John Goodman FAIA, was the winner of the $500 prize after his presentation at FM High School on June 6th. All who attended the event were impressed with this group of young adults and the efforts they put into their projects.

Thanks again to our Career Advisors for granting time to their assigned student and for undertaking the 8 week program. The students will forever be able to look back at the experience and know it was time well spent. Opportunities for hands on experience are far and few between, we appreciate your commitment to the program!
