What makes a great internship experience? This is the question that is always in the back of my mind, as a member of ISE's Internship Committee. We know that there is no single, cookie-cutter answer to this question that can apply to every single intern we bring on. Every person seeking an internship position has a different technical and cultural background. The last thing we can assume is that our potential interns will all want the same kind of experience. Now, I don't mean to brag or anything, but ISE was awarded with CBJ's 2016 Best Internship Program for a small company, so we know a thing or two about how to have an award-winning internship program. When it comes to maintaining that status, it mainly boils down to three principles: Trust, Trade, and Transparency, and who doesn't love alliteration?

The 10th Annual Technology Association of Iowa (TAI) Women of Innovation Awards took place yesterday, and Daniela and I were very excited to be in attendance.
The awards recognized and celebrate women in business, government, or academia who are leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Students were also recognized at both the secondary (grades 7-12) and collegiate levels, receiving scholarships in their categories.
Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend HubSpot’s annual Inbound event, a conference aiming to connect, educate, and inspire marketing professionals and others in creative roles. This year, over 21,000 people crowded the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center to soak up some knowledge and get re-energized on all things business growth.
For the 5th year in a row, we continued a favorite ISE tradition this week by hosting our annual Bags Tournament, and of course by having some awesome wood-fired pizza prepared on-site by Maggie's Farm Wood-Fired Pizza! You can find Maggie’s Farm Wood-Fired Pizza in the NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids. Check out last year's post to learn more about the history of this great event!
