Ignite ICR Returns for 2021 with Hybrid Intern Opportunities

May 25, 2021

For a third year, Ignite ICR (Iowa City - Cedar Rapids) returns to offer interns the opportunity to experience the communities in which they are working as well as gain valuable professional and networking experiences. This year, the program will hold the first three events virtually to allow those working remotely and in-person the opportunity to participate, then offering the fourth summer event in-person.

Given the global health crisis, Ignite ICR is limiting in-person gatherings, but still provides interns the opportunity to experience the great venues, events and attractions throughout the area. To encourage this, each intern will receive free admission vouchers to use on their own time for events, activities and museums of their choosing. In addition to the vouchers, a community guide will be provided to ensure each participant has a full understanding of all the wonderful experiences and places they have access to throughout our community. To request vouchers for interns, please fill out the form at https://bit.ly/3tZhG1L.

We know our area companies provide excellent professional opportunities to interns, and having an equally excellent opportunity to experience the community is another critical component of developing the talent pipeline and keeping future prospects engaged here. Ignite ICR will be held in June and July, with the following schedule of events.
