The CCIS Information & Technology Bridging Program is a 24-week program that provides training in soft and occupational skills to new Canadians with previous IT experience. Doreen, our intern from CCIS, left us last week when she graduated from the program.
We have certainly enjoyed having Doreen as part of the Arcurve team. We’ll let Doreen tell you about her experience at Arcurve, in her own words…
First and foremost, I am grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow in such a nurturing environment. I will miss the team at Arcurve tremendously. The inclusion, support, professionalism and passion are second to none.
When I started my internship eight weeks ago, I didn’t know what to expect. I was excited and curious, but also nervous. Turns out I didn’t need to be nervous—from day one, I have been made to feel like a true Arcuvian and a valued member of the team.
I had the opportunity to learn firsthand what it means to work hard, but also play hard. The team at Arcurve is very professional and deliver outstanding results, but also know how to have a good time. What a great balance!
The learning and mentoring experience has been nothing but extraordinary. I have worked on varied tasks ranging from, but not limited to, virtualization technology, networking, inventory update, active directory, setting up workstations, user licensing, PC and laptop resets, network monitoring, software installation, resetting and configuring switches, Windows servers, Microsoft Office 365, Meraki WIFI port switching and access, and Bitlocker encryption.
This internship has given me the exposure I need to move forward as an IT Support Analyst. What stood out for me in this learning process was the freedom to learn, explore, grow, take risks and stay up to date with the latest technologies. When you have the privilege to be mentored by such an experienced IT Manager, the only option is to grow.
I consider myself a jackpot winner to have interned with Arcurve. I gained a wealth of knowledge and naturally, I am sad that it has come to an end. However, I have been guided in a way that makes me confident and excited about the future. For this, I will be forever grateful to Arcurve.
I do wish all the present and future interns the best and hope that you enjoy being an Arcuvian as much as I have.
