COLUMBUS– The Ohio Senate today passed Senate Bill 227, sponsored by State Senator Bill Beagle (R–Tipp City), which would name the second Tuesday of each April as “Internship and Co-op Appreciation Day.”
“Internships and co-ops provide students with exciting opportunities and insight into new career possibilities,” said Beagle, who serves as Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Workforce and Economic Development. “The hands-on experience that accompanies these programs offer future professionals a jump start into the workforce.”
The bill would raise awareness of the value of internships and co-op opportunities in Ohio as well as encourage businesses throughout the state to offer additional program opportunities. Internships and co-ops also benefit potential employers by giving them access to an untapped talent pool without requiring a long term commitment.
Senate Bill 227 now moves onto the Ohio House of Representatives for further consideration.
