Making Your Comeback - FREE Webinar
Tuesday, July 7th | 10:31am
As we recover from the pandemic and the economic setback it has created, there are key skills that move our businesses forward.

In this program, we will talk about the mindset and skill set requirements of success in a post-COVID economy. The world will be very different for months, if not years, to come. Let's win bigger than ever before and let's do it together.

• We must master the skills of creating psychological safety to return to doing business.
• We must master the science of bringing in new revenue.
• We must master the art of customer engagement.
• We must stay ahead of the Human Resource shifts we are facing.
• We must create a fully engaged workforce that produces at the top of their game.

Join us for an incredible 1-hour webinar as well as a 30-minute Q&A session after the program. The event is FREE, but registration is required via Eventbrite.

Amarillo Intern Experience through Amarillo EDC
Sign your interns up for the 2020 Amarillo Intern Experience!
Get your students connected with others their age so they can take root in our community!

Last year we piloted the Amarillo Intern Experience and it was a roaring success! We had heard from many employers that many college-aged interns from out of town struggle to get acclimated and make friends outside of the company they're interning for. So we decided to get them together and show off our city. By meeting up with outside interns, experiencing different parts of Amarillo, and connecting with the Elevate Amarillo young professionals, our future workforce began to put down roots right here in our community.

"I'm from the Amarillo area, and just in this internship alone, I've learned more about the city: places to eat, things to do, people around town. I really enjoyed the interaction between different intern groups. The events were fun for all ages; our group alone ranged from ages 19-30." Pantex intern

This year, we are opening this program up to the public for FREE! If you have a college intern that you want to start growing in this community as well as your organization, sign up today! We will be hosting two events this summer, a Kickoff and a VIP Downtown Restaurant Crawl! Your interns will not want to miss this!
Once you sign up, you'll receive the schedule of events along with Summer Things to Do for your interns and temporary housing resources, which can be challenging for interns to find. Let's build our future workforce together! Be sure to sign up this week...the first event will take place on June 30th!
