CU*Answers Network Services seeing dividends from paid internship program
GRAND RAPIDS, MI (September 9, 2020) — CU*Answers Network Services, a division of cooperative CUSO CU*Answers, continues its successful paid internship program. The experience benefits individuals looking to test the waters of a technology career and the CUSO’s Client Support and Operations team. Interns configure client workstations, core product update devices, and assist with daily processes, communication, and organization of the lab.
“From this program we have developed permanent employees, including several full-time support staff and even our current assistant manager,” said CSO Manager Sarah Sweet. “It’s a real benefit to have extra hands in the lab and a fresh perspective every so often as well.”
Matt Sawtell, VP of Managed Technology Services, added that the internship program was designed to provide real hands-on technical training for entry-level participants. “As they reach the conclusion of the three- to six-month period, our interns will have added valuable experience to their resumes. And in the best-case scenario, we have developed relationships with talented young individuals who will look to take the next step in their careers by becoming permanent members of the team,” he said.
