The internship program offered by Ohio’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) provides a useful tool for 2022 workforce efforts. The program, which has its own web page at the Ohio Department of Development website, pairs high school and trade school students with manufacturers, providing a win-win situation for manufacturers and students entering the field.
The program reimburses 50% (up to $1,500) of a student intern’s wages. In previous years, an estimated 80% of MEP interns were offered full-time employment by the end of their internships. For more, contact your regional Ohio MEP partner or email the Department of Development. 1/4/2022
