Algona KC Hall
Intern Breakfast Offers
Opportunity to Network
(Algona) - The Kossuth/Palo Alto County Economic Development Corporation will provide interns a networking opportunity during their annual Intern Breakfast in May.
The breakfast is scheduled for May 17th at 7:30 am at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Algona, and will allow interns a chance to become acquainted with each other and
provide an opportunity to network with CEO’s and company managers. Informational packets will be provided to help the interns become acclimated with our area.
Interns attending the K/PACEDC Intern Breakfast also have the opportunity to participate in the Intern Advisory Committee. The committee meets several times during the summer to help direct the intern program.
The Career-Intern Program was developed eighteen years ago as a means of securing a future workforce in the area. Maureen Elbert, Executive Director of K/PACEDC, said “The program encourages young adults to settle and bring new businesses to the area. This program also gives them true skill building training sessions that will hopefully enhance their ability to obtain a good job and make them a committed and productive employee and community leader.”
There will be 40 plus interns coming to our area for summer employment. Elbert says, “This program has truly grown and been enhanced over the years. We have a key committee, the Career-Intern Committee, that plans and volunteers to work at the various Intern Programs throughout the summer. This is a fun group that is truly volunteering their time to make a difference for our area. We have so many examples of college graduates that have returned to our area either following graduation or after years being in the workforce and starting a family.”
Businesses which will have interns working for them this year should contact Kossuth/Palo Alto County Economic Development Corporation at (515) 295-7979 or at email@example.com.
