Technical Consulting/Sales Engineering Internship (Summer 2021)
What we're looking for:
You are a current college sophomore or junior who enjoys solving problems, you are a quick-learner, and you have a passion for technology. You like connecting with people, you understand basic networking concepts (TCP/IP, Routing, Networking), and you are always wanting to learn more to challenge yourself. Your positive attitude is infectious, and your communication skills are on point. You excel in leadership positions with class projects or extra-curricular activities, but one of your strongest skills is working well on a team. You like receiving feedback but you do an amazing job of applying that feedback to try to improve.
