Last Wednesday, Indiana INTERNnet and the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis hosted an all-day professional development event at the museum. Local interns got the chance to participate in sessions including personal branding, resume review and a mentor roundtable.
Interns also had the opportunity to explore the Children’s Museum throughout the day—the Museum is the largest children’s museum in the country! There was a photo scavenger hunt, planetarium show, and special behind-the-scenes collections tour. In the collections tour, interns got to see a large number of items not currently on display in the museum, such as dinosaur bones, famous movie props, and vintage Barbies, to name a few.
Chelsea DuKate, founder and president of Red Envelope Consulting, conducted a personal branding seminar at the event. “Events like this are important because it creates engagement and gives interns a viewpoint of another place to go, an experience,” she said. “It also gives them an opportunity to talk with other interns and learn more about other opportunities in the city.”
Check out the video I made about this fun event below and stay tuned for our next event on August 4 at the Indiana State Fair!
