Externship Location – I.T. Mindshare
Creating a lasting relationship with our externship sites is essential to providing our students with quality hands-on experiences. At I.T. Mindshare, WVJC’s Information Technology (I.T.) and Cybersecurity students receive just that and more. I.T. Mindshare, located in Morgantown, WV, is one of the area’s most reputable cybersecurity companies. According to their website, they are dedicated to helping businesses and government organizations with all of their cybersecurity, I.T. consulting, and data analysis needs.
Their cybersecurity services include risk management, endpoint security, compliance services, phishing & email security, security risk assessments, and so much more. Many savvy criminals use technology to infiltrate your organization’s computer networks and steal, destroy, or ransom your sensitive data. I.T. Mindshare’s security team can help prevent these attacks from happening!
I.T. Mindshare’s information technology consulting services include budget development, systems integration, disaster recovery planning, I.T. transformation, and I.T. organization. They use technology to solve complicated issues that cause inefficiencies, lost income, and poor customer and employee satisfaction.
Having WVJC students complete their externships with I.T. Mindshare provides them with an opportunity to get hands-on experience and insight into a specific part of the information technology field. “Our students really enjoy their time at I.T. Mindshare and the challenging projects they get the opportunity to experience,” says Misti Johnson, WVJC Student Liaison/I.T. Technician.
They work closely with Misti regarding placing students to ensure that each student receives the best educational experiences possible. “Not only has I.T. Mindshare been an excellent externship site for our students, but they have also hired several of our graduates as well,” says Misti.
