CINC Interns Riverboat

We believe interns/co-ops will choose Cincinnati to start their future when they:

  • Envision success in their chosen field
  • Develop connections and friendships with other people in the area
  • Know where to find the services, activities, and types of events they enjoy 
  • Receive a positive, well-rounded internship experience that goes beyond the walls of their company and makes them feel included
  • Experience what makes Cincinnati unique and attractive

CINC - Cincinnati Intern Network Connection

CINC is a series of summer events, hand-crafted by local university, corporate and community leaders, exposing interns and co-op students to all that Cincinnati has to offer and connecting to the each other and the region. By planning four exclusive events throughout the summer and promoting other assets of the region, CINC aims to make our students' Cincinnati experience educational, memorable and fun. 

In 2017, CINC connected 150 interns and co-ops from 215 different Greater Cincinnati companies,​ representing 165  universities, 36 states and 40 countries.

The Big College Event

NEW in 2017, the Cincinnati Chamber hosted The Big College Event, inviting thousands of college and university students to discover the Cincinnati region and explore with eyes wide open. By connecting students to internship opportunities, interest groups, social scenes, community engagement and Cincy's flavor, we hope to deepen their affinity for the region and what it means to have the best in life when they choose Cincinnati after graduation.

Internships & Co-Op Programs

The heightened demand for work-integrated education experiences is being driven by global competition for investment and jobs. A gap often exists between the knowledge and skills students obtain in the classroom and the knowledge and ability skill requirements of the day-to-day workplace. Internships and co-ops help close that gap. View Cincinnati area programs
