Core Objectives

Our internship program focuses on three areas:


Our interns participate in weekly seminars during the summer. Past seminars included opportunities to strengthen public speaking skills, engage with executive leadership and hear from internship alumni.


Our interns develop professional relationships with one another and with team members throughout the company, building a reliable network they can use in their future careers.


As a local business, we believe it’s our responsibility to take an active role in the community. Our interns join us in being there for Nebraskans by participating in a community service day and through additional opportunities offered company-wide.
