West Michigan Intern Connect is a half-day professional development conference designed to help you make the most of your summer internship experience. The conference will be focused on soft (essential) skills interns need: positive communication in the workplace, interpreting dress code, navigating networking events, and #adulting.

What to expect:

Session 1: A Positive Workplace Starts with You, Dr. Dave

  • Learn the importance of being authentic, communicating positively and effectively, finding balance, celebrating successes, and giving yourself grace.

Session 2: Interpreting the Dress Code Fashion Show

  • Just how casual is casual Friday? See what your professional wardrobe could look like and what key items you should think about adding.

Sessions 3: Navigating Networking Events

  • Walking into a networking event can be daunting. Learn the dos and don't of networking and feel confident walking into the room next time.

Session 4: Networking

  • Put your skills to the test as you network with local companies and fellow West Michigan interns.

Session 5: #Adulting

  • Hear from a panel of young professionals about their transition into the workforce and how they navigated the world of #adulting. They will share the tips they learned along the way, what they wish they had done or known, and what made them be successful.
