Intern Week (January 16 – January 19, 2024) 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 29 & 30, 2024) and is packed with in-person and virtual events to help students feel confident and comfortable navigating the fair and the spring job search.
2023 Intern Week Schedule of Events (2024 coming soon)
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 coffee and conversations meetings and mock interviews must be scheduled in advance.
What to Expect
A customizable menu of events will be offered throughout the week.
Workshops, Drop-ins and Pop-up Events: Enhance your knowledge of resume building, career fair success, interviewing, crafting an elevator pitch, and international student job search strategies during interactive online and in-person programs.
Headshots: Stop in to the ECS office between 9am-11am Tuesday for a free headshot that you can then add to your LinkedIn and Handshake profiles. Photos will be taken with your phone for immediate use.
Prizes!: Intern Week long-sleeve t-shirts and College of Engineering beanie hats will be given away throughout the week. There will also be additional giveaways during Intern Day.
Intern Day: Thursday, January 18:
- Coffee and Conversations with Sponsor Companies: Schedule time in the morning to meet 1:1 with our sponsor companies to learn about their upcoming employment opportunities and ask any questions you have about their program. This is also a great time for job search advice or a quick resume review. Coffee and Buckeye Donuts will be served.
- Mock Interviews with Sponsor Companies: Sign up in advance to meet 1:1 with our sponsoring companies in the afternoon to practice interviewing and receive feedback from a company representative.
Intern Exchange: Attend this 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.
2024 Intern Exchange

Join current or former interns representing a variety of employers as they share their experiences and tips for securing an internship/ co-op.
