Thankful Thursday: Summer Intern Edition!

Thankful Thursday is back this week with a special Intern Edition! In honor of our spectacular group of summer interns, we’d like to take the next few weeks to honor them and all of the great things they’re working on this summer at Rogers. In case you’ve missed the last few blog posts, Rogers has decided to implement a weekly #thankfulthursday to show appreciation for all that we have to be thankful for throughout the year.

Although we have been highlighting our techs with our Rogers Spotlights, it’s time to give our awesome interns some appreciation for the next couple of weeks.

In this week’s installment, we would like to welcome one of our new and already hardworking IT interns, Alex Helfrich.

Alex is currently a student at Kennesaw State University. Alex is expected to graduate in the spring of 2019 with a degree in Computer Science. I sat down with Alex last week to get some insight to his interest in Rogers and what he’s most looking forward to this summer as a member of our IT team.

Alex, what peaked your interest in Rogers?

“Rogers Electric offered a friendly, open environment in the field that I was most interested in (IT). I found that this company was the perfect size for an internship, as it offers services across the country but is small enough to gain a more personal and detailed understanding of how the company operates.”

What are you most excited to learn at Rogers this summer?

“I’m excited to be working on the company’s intranet page, and to be learning the process and tools used for such projects.”

What are your summer goals within your role at Rogers?

“To gain experience working in a professional environment and to learn what it takes to make it outside of the academic field, and to gain insight into the workflow behind an office environment.”

We can’t wait to see you accomplish all of these things! Congratulations on your spotlight Alex, you more than deserve it and we’re excited to see all of the great things you accomplish with Rogers.

We’re proud to have you as a new member of the Rogers Family!
