Startups, meet fuel.
It can be challenging to engage students as a startup or small business. Our brands can go unrecognized. And, unlike established companies that recruit six months in advance, you may be focused on what you need tomorrow. Take advantage of students primed and motivated to work for startups through micro-internships and targeted student engagement.
Do meaningful work with students
We see a dual benefit when startups work with students. Companies offer professional experience to students. Students bring energy and new perspectives to companies. CincyTech Students bridges the gap so you can focus on what you do best.
Students can help you with important tasks that take time. These tasks enhance their capabilities and allow you to focus on strategic vision.
Recruit from our pipeline of startup-minded students. Internships align with a full semester and allow you to develop a potential full-time hire.
Embed a process
For projects that are routine but vital, consider hiring a student group as a meaningful part of your workforce.
Universities and students want exposure to startups and innovation. We support initiatives such as in-course projects and student org events.
How to get started with projects
CincyTech Students acts as a bridge to help you attract local university students. When you share an opportunity with us, we amplify the request with students and faculty. Students apply directly to you, and we might refer specific candidates. The project owner makes the hiring decision. We recommend you use Parker Dewey for managing micro-internships.
