“I have always been interested in technology and would like to put my interests to use in a career that takes advantage of that. I am looking forward to learning a lot from this team and having the ability to assist people with their tech issues,” Kolten McCulley said.
Robert Amerson said “The biggest reason I wanted to take part in the Franklin apprenticeship is to build upon my prior knowledge and acquire more valuable skills. Despite having some knowhow and being a hobbyist in tech, it is quite hard to gain “real world” experience that is deemed worthy. STL Com has changed this for me and allowed a more favorable and necessary experience in my I.T. career. It’s truly a privilege to be given this opportunity and to work alongside wonderful likeminded individuals who share my same passion for learning, technology, and customer service.”
“The success of our previous interns as they have moved into permanent roles on our service team has been fantastic. So much so that we have “doubled down” and currently have two interns in the program. Both Kolton and Robert come to STL Communications with great attitudes and most importantly, a desire to learn more about our award-winning technology products and solutions that STL is known for. I am excited about both of their futures with STL and the future of our internship program,” said Steve Leidholdt, President and CEO of STL Communications.
“We are thrilled to continue supporting STL with their apprenticeship program in its second year,” said Jackie Griffin, COO, Franklin Apprenticeships. “As one of the country’s premier technology business services partners, STL is leading the way by creating opportunities for individuals to enter a technology career path without a four-year degree, while also ensuring it has the best possible talent to serve its customers. We’re proud to see that STL apprentices are already adding value to the organization as they grow their IT skills while delivering on STL’s “WOW inspiring” client service promise,” said Jackie Griffin, Chief Operating Officer for Franklin Apprenticeships.
