Intern Week (January 17 – January 20, 2023) primarily targets first and second year students in their pursuit of an internship or co-op. It is strategically placed before the SWE fair (January 30 & 31, 2023) and is packed with in-person and virtual events to help students feel confident and comfortable navigating the fair and the spring job search.
ALL engineering students are welcome to participate, as the programs cover a wide variety of topics and are not solely related to internships and co-ops.
Events are conveniently spread out during the day throughout the week. Based on your class schedule and interest, attend as many events as you can.
To attend these events, please follow the instructions listed in the event's Handshake page. Sponsor company resume reviews and mock interviews must be scheduled in advance.
What to Expect
A customizable menu of events will be offered throughout the week.
Workshops and Pop-up Events: Enhance your knowledge of resume building, career fair success, interviewing, and crafting an elevator pitch during interactive online and in-person programs.
Prizes!: Intern Week long-sleeve t-shirts and College of Engineering beanie hats will be given away throughout the week.
Intern Day: Thursday, January 19:
- Coffee and Conversations with Sponsor Companies: Drop into the ECS office in the morning and meet with our sponsor companies to learn about their upcoming employment opportunities and ask any questions you have about their program. Coffee and Buckeye Donuts will be served.
- Resume Reviews and Mock Interviews with Sponsor Companies: Sign up in advance to meet 1:1 with our sponsoring companies in the afternoon to have your resume reviewed or practice interviewing and receive feedback from a company representative.
- Professional Headshots: Stop in to the ECS office between 10am-1pm for a free professional headshot that you can then add to your LinkedIn and Handshake profiles. Headshots are co-sponsored with the Engineering Society of Professional Excellence (ESPE).
Intern Exchange: Attend this virtual session in the evening and hear from current Ohio State engineering students in this casual setting to learn more about their past experiences and intern/co-op opportunities at the companies for which they worked.
