COSHOCTON — Many are looking for the $20 billion Intel plant being constructed in Jersey Township of Licking County to provide a huge economic boost to the region. However, one question asked by many pertains to the types of jobs offered and the skill set sought by the computer chip maker.

During a 50th anniversary celebration for Central Ohio Technical College in February in Coshocton, President John Berry said they were keenly interested in meeting with Intel management to find out what COTC can do for them and, in turn, how that can help their students. Berry went over details of a meeting with Intel at a recent press conference at Montgomery Hall of the Coshocton Campus. Similar sessions were held at the Newark, Mount Vernon and Pataskala campuses.
