Israeli Internships Expand Worldview of Wyoming Alumni

Four Wyoming High School alumni gained real-world experience thanks to a once-in-a-lifetime internship. This summer, Max Frankel, Adam Behrman, Caroline Abel, and Annie Boster, along with 28 other Cincinnati-area college students took part in Onward Israel, which is administered by JVS Career Services. The eight-week program places Jewish students in internships in Tel Aviv, helping them develop a global perspective on their career path.

Ohio State student Max Frankel was one of four Wyoming students who participated in Onward Israel this past summer.
Max Frankel is a junior at Ohio State studying Logistics Management, and he interned for MIT Forum and Global Entrepreneurship Network Israel as a project coordinator. Frankel’s job was to lead business and educational programs around Israel for groups looking to explore specific industries. His first task was to oversee a group of professors from Mexico researching the Israeli tech industry.

Adam Behrman of Wyoming is currently a junior at Elon University.
Adam Behrman is junior at Elon University studying Computer Science, and he spent the summer at Minute as a data science intern. Minute turns static video thumbnail images into condensed video previews to increase traffic and ad revenue. Behrman’s role was to examine the company’s data sets and figure out how to enhance its revenue and system. He said the office was professional, yet easy-going, with co-workers bringing in their dogs on a regular basis. Behrman said he gained a better understanding of what it means to do data science. 

Wyoming Alumni and current Ohio State student Caroline Abel also spent her summer in Tel Aviv interning. 
Caroline Abel is a junior at Ohio State University studying Information Systems, and she interned at Duco as a market researcher. Duco is an innovation firm, helping companies develop businesses and giving them tools to come up with new ideas. Abel focused on finding information about Duco’s clients to help build their businesses. 

Annie Boster, a junior at Butler University, loved getting to experience the Israeli culture like a local.
Annie Boster is a junior at Butler University studying Art and Design, and she worked at Tau Innovations as a graphic design intern. Over the summer, Tau Innovations hosted the largest startup competition in Israel, and much of Boster’s work was in preparation for that event. She said her communication skills improved, as did her Hebrew, “I love the fact that I am living as a ‘local’ this summer and really get to experience the Israeli culture.”

The Onward Israel is made possible through a Cincy Journeys post-high school Israel travel grant funded by The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati, and it is administered by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati. Through the Cincy Journeys program, Cincinnati Onward Israel interns are in the unique position of participating in this incredible experience for free.
