David Williams
, a Business Economics major who earned the Emphasis in Information Management, had an internship at Zeus Inc., working with Mark Mansfield. Mr. Mansfield writes, "We are heavy into Linux, having many of our servers running the OS. If you want to see Linux in a business setting, this is a good place. Don’t worry about preparing for the summer experience. We will throw you into, and alongside us, in whatever we have going on. A lot of the work for this summer may be networking and Voice over IP as we bring our newly opened Aiken plant on to the network and build it out computer and telephone wise. In a nutshell, what you will be exposed to this summer is Cisco networking, wireless networking, PC maintenance, VOIP telephony, Linux, Oracle Apps and DB. Bring whatever you have learned until now along with some enthusiasm for the summer work and you will be perfectly well prepared."
