North Iowa Area Community College announces the new and improved Career and Internship Center, which provides job seeking and internship support services for students, alumni and businesses. The services and activities of the former North Iowa Career Center on the NIACC campus have been joined with the business internship program at NIACC to form the new NIACC Career and Internship Center.
“Our staff will continue to focus on providing employment and internship assistance to student and alumni, working with businesses to find the right students or graduates for employment and internship opportunities, hosting events such as Career Day and the Job and Internship Fair, handling the placement report and employer satisfaction survey and working with Iowa Workforce Development through the Workforce Development Partnership,” Terry Schumaker, director of the Career and Internship Center, said. “Employment support services and internships provided by the center have a natural connection and the new structure plays off the strengths of each of the activities to make for more effective services to students, businesses, and NIACC faculty and staff.”
Career and Internship Center staff includes Tina Kunzman, who will now serve as career services coordinator, and Dana Heimbuch, who serves as internship coordinator. Kunzman, who formerly provided administrative support for the office, will work directly with students and businesses as well as organizing events. Heimbuch, who formerly worked with business internships, will primarily focus on placing business students for internships and working with other staff and faculty to coordinate other internships needs. Schumaker, who also serves as director of economic development will serve as Career and Internship Center director.
NIACC’s Career and Internship Center is located in the Pappajohn Business Center on the NIACC campus. For more information on any of the Career and Internship Center’s services, call 641-422-4170 or toll-free 1-888-GO NIACC, ext. 4170.
