See Yourself in Ames 2021

Posted on May 4, 2021 at 10:29 AM by Allee Wengert

The Chamber’s flagship summer intern program, See Yourself in Ames, will kick off virtually at the end of May.

Each summer, we invite area employers to send their interns or recent hires to a series of events designed to introduce them to Ames and Story County in hopes they will want to stay here to live, work and play post-college. The program continues to grow, averaging around 125 interns at each event.

The events are an opportunity for interns to better acquaint themselves with our community, network with other interns, and take away professional development skills and tools as they prepare to enter the workforce full-time.

This year, we will be offering two virtual sessions and two in-person sessions. Here’s a sneak peek of the 2021 Program:

  • Tuesday, May 25: Bringing a Vision to Life
    • Keynote Speaker: Jamie Pollard, Athletic Director, Iowa State University
    • 4:00 – 5:30pm | Virtual: Zoom
  • Tuesday, June 8: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
    • Various Speakers (booths will be located throughout the gardens)
    • 4:00 – 6:00pm | Reiman Gardens
  • Tuesday, June 22: Personal Branding
    • Keynote Speaker: Lauren Gifford, Local Artist

  • Tuesday, July 13: Successful Career Launch
