The RIC Brings Back the Interns Summer Program, Offering a Pittsburgh Tour to interns
For the seventh consecutive year the Regional Internship Center (RIC) will
host an Intern Summer Program in an effort to attract and retain young creative talent in the Pittsburgh Region. This year’s Summer Program features 12 different events in five different neighborhoods offering an exclusive 2 month Pittsburgh tour to interns working in Pittsburgh this summer.
Our Intern Summer Program adds value to any company’s internship program, by giving their interns a social outlet, allowing them to network with each other, and serving as ambassadors for their company or university. The greatest outcome of the Summer Program is that it showcases the region to hundreds of interns, the majority of whom are not from Pittsburgh by offering them a Pittsburgh tour.
Historically, internships often transition into full-time job offers, thus retaining a good number of talented young people and adding them to the region’s workforce.
Regina Anderson, Director of the Regional Internship Center notes, “Students sometimes don’t have the opportunity to explore different neighborhoods outside of their campus. These students have great academic training, they demand great jobs after graduation, and they want to know there are other young people in our city to hang out with after work. They are pleasantly surprised how much there is to do here and how accessible these neighborhoods are. That’s how we create diverse and engaged communities. The RIC’s Summer Program helps bring all of those elements together.”
This year’s schedule includes kayaking on the North Shore, a Pittsburgh Pirates game, a scavenger hunt on the North Side, and many more exciting events that will give your intern a fun and informative Pittsburgh tour!
