Tech help is on the way

The Avenue News - - OBITUARIES - By: SARA TREN­ERY, BAL­TI­MORE COUNTY ECO­NOMIC AND WORK­FORCE DE­VEL­OP­MENT

The race is on to recruit top tech tal­ent. And Mary­land’s col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties are train­ing some of the best.

Hir­ing an in­tern can help busi­nesses get a jump on the best tal­ent. In­tern­ships can be a valu­able tool, both for busi­nesses look­ing to de­velop a lo­cal tal­ent pipe­line and for stu­dents in­ter­ested in get­ting some real world busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence prior to grad­u­a­tion.

The Mary­land Tech­nol­ogy In­tern­ship Pro­gram (MTIP) can help com­pa­nies tap into tal­ent at our col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties. The pro­gram also helps Bal­ti­more County re­tain top tal­ent by in­creas­ing the num­ber of paid tech­ni­cal in­tern­ships.

In­tern­ship Fund­ing Avail­able

In­tern­ship fund­ing is now avail­able to tech-based busi­nesses of­fer­ing paid in­tern­ships. Pref­er­ence will be given to smaller busi­nesses and em­ploy­ers seek­ing in­terns to fill tech­ni­cal and cre­ative roles that re­quire sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing, and/or math (STEM) skills.

Funded by the State of Mary­land and ad­min­is­tered by the Univer­sity of Mary­land Bal­ti­more County (UMBC), the pro­gram of­fers fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to tech­nol­ogy-based busi­nesses and lo­cal agen­cies to hire more in­terns from all Mary­land higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions.

The Mary­land Tech­nol­ogy In­tern­ship Pro­gram can re­im­burse em­ploy­ers for up to 50% of an in­tern’s wage and up to $3,000 an­nu­ally per in­tern.

If you are re­cruit­ing candidates for in­tern­ships, re­view the MTIP pro­gram de­tails and ap­ply now for the spring se­mes­ter.

Top tech tal­ent can be just a click away.
