Let us show you why OKC is the place to live, work and play as a young professional.
Here's the game plan:
Land an Internship: So, you need an internship. Good news...OKC has one waiting for you! The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber's Greater Grads program has solid connections with our local businesses. In fact, we have connections with nearly 5,000 businesses from a wide variety of industries across the metro area. And we've done the hard work for you by collecting their internship opportunities into one ridiculously-easy-to-search online database. We've also encouraged other businesses to create internship programs by helping them better understand the benefits an internship brings to both you - the student - and them - the employer. We've helped create those opportunities, and now we're serving them up to you on a digital platter. Internship opportunities are available for fall, spring or summer semesters. (Pro tip: If you get a summer internship in OKC, chances are you get to hang out with us! Just keep reading.)
Learn and Network: You knocked 'em dead in your interview and landed your dream internship for the summer. Congrats! What's next you may ask? Getting to know your new home for the next few months! We've put together a guide to show you why OKC is the place to be. Why? Because we want to make sure you have a positive and enriching internship experience that you can write (text, Tweet, call, Facebook message...you get the point) home about to your friends and family. You should also be sure to ask your supervisor about our InternOKC Summer Internship program. This five-week program gives you a chance to meet and network with other interns just like you. You’ll learn valuable tools to take with you as you transition from college student to young professional, meet business professionals from a variety of industries, and create relationships that can help launch your career. It's pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves.
Find that Dream Job: Just graduated? Completed your internship? We want to help you find a job in OKC and our Greater Grads Career Fair is the final step in our master plan. Employers from around the metro attend and are ready to meet talented young professionals just like you. Spruce up your resume. Dry clean that suit.
