Technology Deployment Specialist

July 2023 - August 2023 Lake Forest, IL
“Working at LFCDS not only gave me the opportunity to gain real world experience, but also let me experience how a professional workspace should operate. I got to see how a Technology Support Specialist, a System Administrator, and a Director of IT all handle their own work and collaborate. The environment was extremely friendly and comfortable. During the internship I was also given opportunities to sit down with employees to discuss their work, how they create solutions, and best practices in real world situations and organizations. I was also given the opportunity to participate in discussions and provide feedback on solutions in development. I can guarantee that any student who interns here will benefit from the experiences gained while working, as well as the wisdom of those they work under. ”

Data Integration Specialist

January 2023 Lake Forest, IL
“My internship as a Data Integration Specialist at LFCDS has been a tremendous experience. There are plenty of opportunities to learn new application and software tools to experiment with data projects and flexibility regarding scheduling. Team members and supervisors are great to work with, as they provide valuable knowledge and are willing to answer any questions or give feedback. They made me feel like a valued part of the LFCDS community. They were able to discuss goals I had set out at the beginning of the internship and the progress I have been making in accomplishing them through weekly meetings. ”
