West Michigan Intern Connect is a summer program of events and resources for young professionals. Designed to teach area interns about West Michigan’s lifestyle and abundant economic opportunities, and to help interns make the most of their summer internship experience.

  • Meet interns from other companies. Because you can always have more friends.
  • Learn about employers in the area. Because establishing a network is important.
  • Tackle career transitions as a young professional. Because #adulting is hard.

Since Intern Connect is during the workday, companies can make it a part of their intern program and a requirement to attend.

Included in your interns’ registration:

  • Half-day professional development conference on June 26. (Check our website to find out what session topics will be covered this year!)
  • Summer Start-Up Guide, available to upon registration.
  • Intern Inform eNewsletter, our weekly newsletter created by interns, for interns highlighting community events and providing insight into common themes, questions, and relevant topics.
  • West Michigan Intern of the Summer Contest (coincides with National Intern Day, July 25).
