FAST FORWARD, VOL. II
FAST FORWARD TO A FUTURE IN INDY
Calling all summer interns and early-in-career professionals! The intern event of the summer is back and better than ever, and we’re ready to showcase all that is great about living in the Indy region. Have you considered what life in Indy could look like for your future? Join hundreds of fellow interns and early-in-career professionals from across our region as we share the culture and opportunities of Indy. The best part? It’s completely FREE!
While this experience may be free to attend, its value is off the charts.
→ SO, WHAT IS FAST FORWARD ANYWAY?
Fast Forward was designed to offer an immersive experience for interns and early-career individuals in Central Indiana, showcasing Indy’s distinct culture and opportunities. By introducing these individuals to the region’s unique arts, music, culture, and local organizations, interns will walk away with a positive impression of Indy, increasing the likelihood of them choosing it as their future home after graduation.
Internships are often a front door to careers. Let us be the front door to the community.
→ WHAT IT IS NOT: A JOB FAIR.
Fast Forward is not a job fair. Yes, a table setup is okay, but this isn’t an event to bring recruiters and job openings. We encourage our partners to think creatively about how to engage with attendees in a memorable way. In the past, we’ve seen success with ideas like inviting young professionals who are Indy transplants to represent your organization, creating an interactive board with engaging questions for interns to answer, offering raffle opportunities, inviting local athletes to play cornhole and mingle, or even setting up a selfie station. Accelerate your creativity into top gear!
→ WHY SHOULD MY COMPANY BE INVOLVED?
Talent attraction and retention play a key role in improving the well-being of our residents and the future of our region. Business leaders across the Indy region are looking for the next class of talent, and the Indianapolis area interns could be the solution—but it’s on us to connect them to local resources and employers in an effort to convert them into new residents. Participating in Fast Forward allows you to be a part of the movement to increase the attractiveness of the talent pipeline in the Indy Region. But don’t take our word for it—see the impact for yourself:
LAST YEAR’S HIGHLIGHTS:
Organizations of all shapes and sizes are encouraged to invite their summer interns to attend Fast Forward, a key talent attraction event, hosted in partnership with Life in Indy.
