Internship

An internship at TechSoup is not just a learning experience; it is an opportunity to make a challenging and meaningful contribution. You will get to work on real world inspiring projects that drive goals and objectives.

This initiative will enhance TechSoup’s ability to efficiently access confidential, legal, and compliance-related documents via a cloud-based system rather than storing files in limited, on-site space that can be utilize for other purposes.  Currently, files that require review must be pulled from storage which is not only cumbersome, but inefficient, time intensive, and pose a security risk to employees as well as to the organization. Through this project, the intern will learn how to effectively utilize HR information systems to improve documentation, increase organizational efficiency, and reduce compliance risks.

This is a paid position.
