Okay I am wanting to do an internship at Cerner through the KCIT Launch program. I am currently going to school at JCCC to receive my associates in Information Technology-Networking, and hope to get my bachelors but only as money allows. Anyways I was wondering if anyone else has done this program or knows anything about it. I was told by the recruiter that fall and spring semester would only be 20 hours a week and the summer would be 40 hours. Does anyone know if you are able to work more than 20? Also is the internship only while school is in session so would I be out of work for the months while school is on break? I know I can ask the recruiter this but my interview isn't until next week and I am kind of impatient. Also is it possible to get offered a full time job with only having my associates? Any information would be wonderful.
Oh and for those who say you have to work overtime and no work/life balance, I DON'T CARE. I am a career oriented person and right now my career path takes priority.

casa4sep: I have direct knowledge of the KCIT Internship as I was an Intern for 8 months in the program. The model is currently 20 hours during school and 40 during the summer with no break in-between. I was fortunate enough to have 40 hours all 8 months, even though this is not typical you can work this out with your manager. The internship leads to an apprenticeship - at this step in your career you are allotted company benefits (always a plus). Lastly, there is an opportunity for a full time position with only holding an associate degree. If you are a worthy candidate utilize the link and apply for the position. If you would like more info on the internship or the full time opportunity email me at [email]jzayed30@yahoo.com[/email].
Good Luck!

Thank you for the great in depth reply. It is good to know that even though I do want to get my bachelors I can still have a career with Cerner with only my associates. I have applied for the KCIT Internship and have had a recruiter talk with me about the position but I have requested to wait until summer to start everything because I would like to complete one more semester of school, just to gain a little more knowledge. He said that he will call me around March - April time to get the ball rolling. Thank you again for all the information.

I found out the other week that I was accepted into the internship program. I start at the end of May. What kind of questions do you have? I might be able to answer some.
