Our 2017 Events

Day in the Park

Thursday, June 22
5:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Ah-Nab-Awen Park, Grand Rapids

Let’s have some fun, shall we? Enjoy a fun night after work with your peers from companies and organizations from all over West Michigan. There will be games provided by Grand Rapids Sport & Social Club, food trucks, and great prizes. It’s $20 to attend, but check with your intern program coordinator because they might be picking up the tab for you. Ticket price includes food and fro-yo.

Professional Networking Night

Tuesday, July 11
5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Grand Rapids Art Museum

Your internship is winding down for the summer and you’re thinking “What’s Next?” Now is a great time to expand your professional network and connect with employers looking for their next round of interns or even full-time hires. This isn’t a career fair, but it will help you take the next step in your career.

Tuesday is also swing dancing night in Grand Rapids. Once you’ve networked, stay for our afterglow on the terrace at the GRAM for drinks and snacks where you can watch hundreds of swing dancers and a 25 piece band. Steve Zaagman of the Grand Rapids Original Swing Society will host a short swing dancing lesson inside the GRAM just for Intern Connect attendees. We’ll also pay for your dancing wristband if you want to join in the fun at Rosa Parks Circle.
