The Oneida County College Corps internship program continues to grow with close to 200 local college students being placed with 50 employers this year alone.

This year, the College Corps laced 190 students in fields of work involving technology, engineering, business, law, marketing, education, health, financing and human services.

The organization began in 1998 with the goal of getting college students to come back to the area while continuing their education, in the hopes they'll stick around.

The county pays half of the wages, and the employer pays the other half.

“Internships have become the new direction that many employers want to see when they are hiring youth. That you had an internship when you were in college, so Oneida County stepped up 21 years ago to fund this program,” said Oneida County Workforce Development Director David Mathis.

In 2017, there were 116 interns, in 2018, 170 interns were served, and this year, 190 interns will be a part of the program.
