By Joan Honig – In a competitive job market, interns hope to get practical knowledge, network with people in their field and learn more about what it takes to succeed in today’s workplace. DocuWare is a cutting-edge software company. We’re always on the lookout for smart, creative, self-motivated individuals to join us. Our paid internships help college students nurture these qualities, and ideally to return to DocuWare when they graduate.
Interns Coby Schaefer and Janik Mueller shared their experiences with us.
An internship confirms information technology is a good fit
Coby Schaefer is in his junior year at Marist College studying information technology (IT). Because DocuWare internships offer flexible hours, he can easily coordinate with his class schedule and spends three days per week at the company.
“So far, only one course I’m taking has applied directly to my internship. It’s a class on networking. It is designed to give students a clear understanding of how a network is set up in a corporate environment,” he said.
