InternCLE Episode 026 – Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education – Holly Harris Bane

NOCHE or the Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education has been around for 65 years.  NOCHE was formed by business leaders in the Cleveland metropolitan area concerned about the talent supply in NEO.  It was involved in the creation of Cleveland State and what became Case Western Reserve University.  It’s mission and outreach has evolved over time.  Under Holly’s leadership her goal is to maximize the relationship between employers and institutes of higher learning to ensure students are learning the skills that are in demand in the region.

NOCHE trains 150-200 companies per year through this program.  NOCHE is targeting small to medium sized companies for their internship training more recently. 

NOCHE has been working hard on the demand side with employers to reach down into high schools as well to get students thinking about internships and companies in Northeast Ohio.  They also work with the supply side with the high schools and college career centers to encourage students to want to do internships in the region. 

NOCHE partners with organizations all over Northeast Ohio and is moving their headquarters downtown to the TeamNEO offices. 

Holly feels that this region has a good deal going for it.  The most marketable aspects of our region are our institutions of higher learning and our multinational companies.  There are many companies engaged with education in the internship and research spaces. 

NEO Talent Exchange – “Not your father’s job board” – This is a matching program that aligns students with opportunities in the region.
