Mercy Technology Services Seeking South Tech Candidates

Mercy Technology Services Seeking South Tech Candidates

Our Web and Computer Programming, CISCO Networking Academy, and Information Technology and Graphics students have a new industry partner, Mercy Technology Services (MTS). MTS provides all of the information technology support for Mercy Hospitals and their corporate clients throughout the United States.

MTS has partnered with South Tech to aid in exposing high school students interested in IT careers to the diverse opportunities in their organization and begin identifying students who will be candidates for a new job-shadowing program. As Mercy continues to grow, their need for qualified IT professionals is expanding and South Tech students are learning the skills and earning the certifications required for many employment opportunities at MTS. The program will pair students with MTS mentors who will facilitate student preparation and exploration to support building a strong pipeline of future employees. Our instructors will select candidates based on attendance, interest, and mastery of curriculum skills.

Recently, MTS launched the program by hosting our students over three consecutive Wednesdays for tours led by Lead Service Technician Jessica Garner. Garner brought students to several departments including Project Management, the MTS Network Operations Center, and the Service Center. Each department shared information with students that tied their daily responsibilities to the curriculum in our programs and answered questions. In the service center, students were allowed to have a brief shadow experience fielding calls as they were coming into the help desk.
