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 events to help students feel confident and comfortable navigating the fair and the spring job search.
Employers who desire to recruit for co-op and internship positions and have a strong interest in promoting their brand to students seeking those roles have the opportunity to sponsor this week-long event and attend Intern Day, or sign a student representative up for the Intern Exchange. See details below for both sponsorship and non-sponsorship options.

2023 Participation is full. Participation in the signature virtual event, Intern Exchange, does not require sponsorship but is available first come, first serve.
The signature event of Intern Week is the virtual Intern Exchange (formerly Intern Networking Night). Participating companies may sign up one current OSU engineering student who has previously worked (or is currently working) at your company as an intern or co-op. This student representative will promote your company by sharing their experience with other students during this casual networking event.
