Expy Award - Best New Internship
Vizion Solutions Named Best New Internship at the Expys!
Cleveland - April 30, 2014 Vizion Solutions won the Best New Internship Award at the Expys, an annual celebration of Northeast Ohio internships presented by Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education and CBC Magazine, on March 27, 2014.
In 2013, Vizion Solutions launched its Connect! Internship program. Vizion Solutions “Connects Information to Decision Makers” and the Connnect! program connects college students to opportunities. These opportunities include building skills in a variety of areas including application development, business intelligence solutions, database management, networking infrastructure, time management and technical documentation while working in a professional, “real world” work environment.
Connect! was developed with the support of the entire Vizion Solutions management team. It was their collective goal to create a professional and fun internship experience with the hopes of building a talent pipeline for future hires.
The inaugural class of the Connect! program employed interns from 4 universities; Akron, Miami, OSU and Dayton. Three of the interns joined our Business Intelligence team. These interns updated our demo, provided reporting for clients and evaluated a new visualization software. The fourth was a Sophomore who helped update server software/hardware with the internal Infrastructure team. The program was a smashing success. Our Akron student worked part time during the school year and has accepted a full time position starting in May. Our Miami student will also be joining the team upon graduation.
Vizion Solutions also participated in NOCHE’s Entrepreneurial Internship Program, which guides startup companies through the process of establishing an effective internship program. The Entrepreneurial Internship Program is funded in part by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation in Hudson.
