Ohio Business College is always a great resource for employers to find candidates to fill a job opening, but our students also regularly perform externships with local businesses before completing their education. There are many benefits to bringing in an extern from Ohio Business College, and here are just a few things to consider:
- When an employer contacts our Career Services department, we can work with them to find out exactly what criteria they are seeking in an extern, and then narrow the field down to fall within their focus.
- Externship is a great avenue to “try out” a potential new employee, learn about their work ethic, skills, and demeanor. In many cases, an externship can ultimately serve as a 100+ hour job interview. There is no better way to determine if a candidate would be right for your company than a hands-on externship.
- An OBC extern can give your business/office the opportunity to catch up on projects that the regular full-time staff simply does not have time for, i.e. organizing files, scanning paperwork, creating spread sheets, etc.
The bottom line is that Ohio Business College values the input of employers – and we will work hand-in-hand to develop long-term, prosperous relationships. We are confident that our graduates will be successful, and we want you to share in that success. Consider participating in our externship program at Ohio Business College – we know you’ll be impressed with the quality of our students.
