The program is challenging and requires an investment of commitment, determination and just plain hard work. I am so proud of my job title: Cloud Engineer at STS. And guess what? I’m still learning! The STS Apprentice Program has been a critical part of my career development and the long term value of the program is immeasurable.


Cloud Engineer, Simple Technology Solutions

This opportunity has changed my life drastically. Originally I was a college graduate with few job leads and little direction toward my career goals. Now, I am employed full time as a government contractor doing what I love, learning new concepts, and mostly, being able to provide for my family. Thanks STS!
