Do you know what having an intern can do for your business? Thinking about hosting an intern at your business but are not sure how? With Ferris State University here in Mecosta County we are fortunate to have a great resource of talent and ingenuity right in our back yard, but how do we best tap into that resource? In an effort to foster collaboration between Ferris State University and the community, the Mecosta County Area Chamber of Commerce will host Intern 101.


    At Intern 101, Megan Connaghan, Internship Coordinator from the College of Business, will discuss:

    • The benefits of hosting an intern

    • How to set up an internship program

    • The host requirements of an internship

    • The best way to inform FSU students of opportunities in your business.

    Attendees will also hear a testimonial from Lynne Scheible, Executive Director of Artworks in Big Rapids, as she describes the positive impact interns have had on her organization.
