Many college students get an early start on their future careers by spending time with a company as an intern. And to spread the word about how students and the companies can benefit from internships, the Richland Community Development Group and Richland County Foundation hosted a 90-minute meeting with 30 business owners Wednesday. Two students who have done internships attended the meeting to tell of their experiences. One is a Mechanical Engineering major at Ohio State-Mansfield who interns at Cooper Enterprises in Shelby. Brian Kurtz says it's been a great experience that should help get his foot in the door, and he urges other college students to intern. Another business owner was so impressed with Kurtz, he slipped the student a card and said "if Cooper doesn't hire you, call me".
