As thousands of college graduates prepare to enter the workforce, it remains important for us to showcase Lincoln as a great place to live and work. The challenges of the ongoing pandemic do not diminish the fact that our community needs talented workers to contribute to our local businesses.
In its fourth year, our MyTern program from the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development seeks to show interns at area companies how life in Lincoln might look for them if they stick around and decide to start their careers here.
This spring and summer, the MyTern program will invite hundreds of interns to participate in a variety of activities that focus on networking and exploring what Lincoln has to offer.
Although it will look a bit different than in the previous three years, MyTern will be conducted online. However, the messaging will remain the same—the MyTern program will allow interns and our local businesses to discover what makes Lincoln an attractive place to be.
Interns will have the chance to connect with others from a variety of industries, backgrounds and hometowns through engaging virtual activities and networking opportunities. In 2019, nearly 500 interns participated in MyTern, as the program has continued to grow and connect young people year after year.
One thing that has not changed is the fact that for today’s young job seekers, place is just as important as opportunity when it comes to accepting a job offer. We know that Lincoln can continue to be competitive and excel on both fronts.
If you or your organization is interested in getting involved with this program, I invite you to fill out this form to receive more information.
