Fort Wayne, Ind.—The Indiana Tech Career Planning and Development Center celebrated student interns and their employers at the 4th annual Internship Recognition Breakfast on April 18.
David Crowe of Eaton Corporation was the keynote alum speaker and discussed how his internship at Vera Bradley led to his first full-time job in accounting. He challenged students to think about how they can set themselves apart from other candidates and gave examples of how he answered his toughest interview questions.
Janet Boston, executive director of Indiana INTERN.net, attended the event and announced the winners of the Employer of the Year and Intern of the Year awards.
Vera Bradley was named Employer of the Year. The company has mentored several Indiana Tech interns and has participated in Mock Interview Day and other career center events.
Twelve students were nominated for Intern of the Year, and the award went to Morgan Delagrange for her internship with Parkview Health. Delagrange is a sophomore from New Haven, Ind., with a major in business administration-human resources. Her supervisor, Jen Veatch said, “Morgan, in a short time, learned the process, assisted to streamline documents, and became a valuable member of our team. We have had multiple interns over the years, and she is certainly one of the most energetic, effective and well-rounded individuals we have worked with.” Delagrange received a plaque and a $500 gift card for professional clothing.
Three students received an Honorable Mention certificate and a $100 gift card for their outstanding work:
