Chamber hosting Interns on Deck
Interns can go on a free cruise in the region during a networking event this week.
The Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce is hosting Interns on Deck on June 20 at 3 p.m.
The event begins with a short presentation aboard the USS LST 393, docked in Muskegon, at 560 Mart St. Afterward, attendees will go on a guided tour on the Aquastar boat.
Dave Alexander, executive director of Downtown Muskegon Now, will narrate the cruise around Muskegon Lake, highlighting the Muskegon community from the lake perspective.
There will be short presentations by Amy Heisser of Arconic, Tom Schultz of Tyler Sales and Cindy Larsen, president of the chamber.
The event is meant to share the perks of living on the lakeshore, with the hope the interns will seek jobs in the area, the chamber said.
“With a nationwide workforce shortage, this is an incentive that money can’t buy,” Larsen said. “Many understand that taking a new job in a waterfront community is living the dream.”
The event includes complimentary soft drinks and a cash bar.
Free registration is available online.
