Export Interns Help Businesses Grow
Ohio Development Services Agency
Businesses have only a few days remaining to apply for export-trained interns to help them grow and boost international marketing or logistics.
The Ohio Development Services Agency’s Export Internship Program places students who have completed export-focused coursework with businesses seeking to boost exports. College students from across the state take the export course at The Ohio State University Max M. Fisher College of Business, the Cleveland State University Monte Ahuja College of Business, the Youngstown State University Williamson College of Business Administration, or the University of Dayton School of Business Administration.
Participating businesses receive a 50 percent reimbursement for intern wages, up to $3,600. The deadline for businesses to apply for this year’s program is February 1. Students will be matched with companies in April 2021, and the internships run from May to August 2021.
