Recruiting Companies – Diversity and Inclusion Technology Internship

The Diversity and Inclusion Technology Internship Program is an opportunity to get hands-on experience in some of Ohio’s most innovative companies. We’re placing highly-motivated college students at early-stage technology companies or companies with a technological need. Companies across Ohio have an opportunity to get great talent to help them grow, with budding engineers, researchers, market analysts, designers, marketers and others. We’ll even help finance the position by paying two-thirds of intern wages up to $10,000.

We’re matching students and companies for internships for this summer and fall, from June 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018. They can be either three or six-month internships.

What kind of companies are we looking for?

  • Ohio: Is your company located in Ohio?
  • Technology: Are you an early-stage technology company or company with a technology need?
  • Talent: Are you looking for top talent?
  • Time: Can you host full-time or part-time interns over a period of three to six months?

Great — Companies can apply here today through April 30th.
