At Quest we believe internships and apprenticeships are key to developing a successful workforce. We view it as part of our mission to help our area develop a homegrown technically adept workforce.
To that end we employ a few interns each year to help them learn business skills in a real world environment. Two of our Elite Applications Engineers started out as Quest Interns and have been with us for over 5 years each!
Here's some information about our interns and the projects they worked on:
David has been regularly interning with Quest for 9 years. This year he graduated from the University of Puget Sound with his Bachelor of Arts in International Studies. Never one to fall behind, David already has accepted a job offer with the federal government in Washington, D.C. which he will begin at the end of the summer. David has been a huge help to Quest over several years, performing administrative tasks, helping do company research, and most recently assisting with the Ideas to Matter business unit launch. The Quest team is sad to see him go but thrilled he is succeeding in life! Best of luck, David!
