We are pleased to welcome 23 interns who have started placements across the company and country, including our offices in Winnebago, Sioux City, Bellevue, and Fairfax, VA! 

In the coming weeks, they’ll gain hands-on experience and receive valuable mentorship as they collaborate on projects within their offices and their communities. 

Ho-Chunk, Inc. knows the value of a solid and progressive education. It is the foundation of any success for a Tribal community and for a Tribal corporation. It is a priority for the Winnebago Tribe. Not only does it benefit a community in general, but in Ho-Chunk Inc.’s case, it is critical to qualify Tribal members for jobs with the company. Due to its importance, Ho-Chunk, Inc. has established several initiatives for both short and long term opportunity. 

One of those initiatives is the internship program. The Ho-Chunk, Inc. Internship Program provides valuable work experience within a business environment to outstanding college students ranging from the first year through the master’s level. The purpose of the program is to provide summer employment with positive work/training experience and to identify and track potential Tribal members for possible regular full-time employment. 

The program offers opportunities in the fields of communications, corporate operations, finance, government contracting, HR, IT, manufacturing, marketing, retail and real estate & construction. 

We look forward to seeing what you can accomplish! Stay tuned for more information to see what these talented individuals achieved this summer.
