What Do Interns at XPERTECHS Do?

When you work as an intern here, you’re not going to get stuck fetching coffee and lunch. We’re also not going to dump you on the Help Desk taking calls from customers.

We want our interns to have a positive learning experience that sets them up for a great start to a rewarding career in IT. We typically have interns work in a few areas of our business that help them learn how a managed IT service provider operates and give them opportunities to flex their technical talents.

What's a Managed IT Service Provider?

A Managed IT Service provider operates as an outsourced IT department for small to medium-sized businesses. Through sound IT and cybersecurity management, and strategic guidance for technology direction and investments, clients are able to use IT as a competitive advantage while managing cyber risks.

IT professionals who work for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) get to work on a variety of different IT environments that represent different industries and business needs. The work is challenging, rewarding, and essential for modern business sustainability and growth.

Interns Work Towards Personal Learning Goals

When you’re an intern at XPERTECHS, we’ll work with you and your college advisor to establish personal learning goals that align with the types of projects that interns are typically involved with when they work with us. Projects may include:

  • Workshop Team – Image, build and set up computers
  • Service Desk – Get a taste for what it’s like to troubleshoot issues
  • Administrative – Learn about software and hardware through licensing
  • Automation – Learn about low code automation and Microsoft Power Apps
  • Cybersecurity – Learn about cybersecurity best practices
