“The updayton Young Creatives Summit Kickoff on Tuesday included a sneak peek of a website designed to help the community combat brain drain by retaining the best and brightest from area colleges.

The kickoff was a preview of the April summit.

DaytonINTERNS.net, an initiative designed to promote the hiring of college-age students by Miami Valley businesses, non-profits and governmental bodies, will officially launch in the spring, according to John Jones, chair of updayton’s intern committee.

Jones, a University of Dayton adjunct political science lecturer and internship coordinator, said the site will allow area businesses, agencies and organizations to post internship openings in one central area. Those postings will then automatically be added to career services websites for several area colleges.”
