Centriq’s IT Career Program grads work for some really great companies. We asked Shannon Morris, Owner of Freedom Staffing, to tell us about her company and why they hire Centriq grads.

Our organization handles all aspects of IT from infrastructure to software and technical writers to project managers. We take a special interest in our service men and women as they transition from the military. Our teams feel a sense of purpose and a strong sense of accomplishment.

- What sets Centriq grads apart from other candidates?
The Centriq students come with hands-on experience that leads them to leadership roles in the positions we have at the Department of Defense. The graduates impress our management with their ongoing certification goals and determination to make an impact within IT. The Centriq students in many cases are true technologists who hunger to learn and advance their knowledge as not only a career but as a hobby. This curiosity allows the organizations they support to advance their services and in their terms go from “Good to Great.”
