Hello Employers,

Welcome to Intern Omaha’s third cohort! We are excited and honored to have you as partners.

Our hope is that this orientation website will help to clarify any remaining questions you may have regarding expectations of you, your interns, districts, and/or the Internship Coordinators.

As we have said from the beginning, our goal is to facilitate meaningful internship experiences for high school seniors in an effort to grow our workforce and retain our region’s extraordinary homegrown talent. The opportunities you have provided are a lynchpin in this mission.

Within this Employer Partner Prep Kit you will find the following:

      • Orientation Materials

      • Program components and expectations for all participants

      • Copies of documents you will engage with throughout the program

      • Intern Omaha Contact Information

Below is information for you to use throughout your participation in the Intern Omaha program. Please know that you are always encouraged to reach out to an Internship Coordinator or the Intern Omaha Program Director throughout the program if you have any questions or concerns regarding your experience.

Welcome aboard! We look forward to assisting you during your participation in the Intern Omaha program.
