We think you should stay in Oklahoma City, and Greater Grads is our plan for keeping you here. Here’s the strategy: Get an Internship: You know you need’em, and OKC has’em. We’re a chamber, so we officially have some connections with local businesses — in fact, we have connections with more than 5,000 businesses. We’ve not only collected all their internships into one ridiculously-easy-to-search online database, but we’ve also encouraged loads of businesses to add internships, helping them better understand the bottom-line benefits. So we’ve helped create opportunities, and now we’re serving them up to you on a digital platter.
You’re young, smart and results-oriented. You’ve got plenty of creativity, versatility and technological dexterity to bring to the table. And we want you to stay in Oklahoma after graduation. That’s why we developed Greater Grads. The program will help you discover the benefits of living and working in the Oklahoma City region, while fostering peer networking and providing you with the resources you need to transition from college to career.
Oklahoma is globally recognized for its outstanding incentive program and pro-business environment. Businesses can choose between a cash incentive or a tax credit package, and in some cases, qualifying businesses can take advantage of both programs.
