The 3 BIG Myths of a Technology Internship

The 3 BIG Myths of a Technology Internship

Here at Beringer, we play with technology all the time.
We're deep into cutting edge technologies like…

  • Microsoft Azure integration services
  • Microsoft Azure DevOps pipeline deployment
  • Microsoft .NET application development
  • Microsoft Power Platform and Dynamics 365
  • Microsoft Office 365 and Azure Active Directory
  • Managed services and support applications
  • Cyber security and compliance solutions
  • Microsoft Cloud Productivity

You may not be aware of what these technologies are, but you shouldn't let that scare you away from an internship in technology. Check out my top three myths of a technology internship, and see if this career path may be right for you.

Myth #1: If you want to work in technology, you need to pursue a computer science degree

Beringer is in the customer service industry, and providing an exceptional customer experience is paramount. While we use technology to provide this experience, the most crucial element is simply letting the client know that you are there for them. Give them the confidence that you have adopted their issue, and will drive it until it is resolved. I've found there are many non-technical degrees that prepare you to better serve a customer than the technical degrees. In fact, some of my most successful teammates have degrees in Psychology.

Myth #2: You need to have technical skills and experience before you start your internship

Our internship is here to help expose you to a wide array of technologies, and give you that first taste of a professional experience. While we don't require any technical skills or experience to be considered for an internship, we do require you to add value every day.
Here's five skills that you can provide on day 1…

  • Be coachable and love to learn
  • Arrive on time & dress for success
  • Have a strong work ethic & give it your best effort.
  • Show positive body language, energy & attitude
  • Have passion for your work & your life

Myth #3: You must pursue a technical path

Beringer is a GREAT place to learn and pursue your technical dreams, but we have many different non-technical paths you can follow. You can pursue a functional path, where can involve customer facing activities like training, requirements gathering, testing and project management. There are also non-technical paths in operations and sales, which are all critical for supporting our business.
