Deloitte / InsideSherpa Tech Consulting Virtual Internship



Did you know?

Before Covid-19, employers were rather stingy on helping graduates, new or not so new, with internships, often having a very limited time frame that they cared about you.

Not so with Deloitte and InsideSherpa! Check it out here. It was free, and a project to talk about, so I did it. Turns out that consulting is pretty cool.

I've enjoyed thinking about the best solutions to bring a business to the cloud, or online. See my post on LinkedIn. I didn't want to directly copy it, but it's how I feel!

  It's not all just 'Set up a Cloud account and have at it'. My Azure certification gave me a leg up on one of the projects; I was more minute than they expected at points.

It did show me that I can do remote work; Work is often already an invasion on someone's life and time. Being able to take my time and work when I wanted to without being burned out was a nice perk.

If you still have your school e-mail address, you can sign up with that. I haven't tried it with a business address.

This is basically "What does Deloitte do?" with four sections;


  • Cloud Engineering
  • Optimization and Delivery
  • Technology Strategy and Innovation
The fourth segment is a video interview to pitch yourself, which is optional.

Personally, the Optimization and Delivery one was the most challenging. It was more steeped in business jargon than the other two, though I did get there in the end through diligent research and re-doing the projects.

Cloud Engineering was the most fun. There's a lot of 'outline all the tech considerations'. Things I thought were important ... were still important. I was thinking big picture, and didn't think a tech company wanted to hear something minute - "Consider the OS" - But they did, and it's good to know people care about details.

Here is a section from a Cloud Engineering segment:

Companies interested in hiring me can send a LinkedIn message for full works.

You are more than welcome to put the completed course on your resume and LinkedIn page.

If companies want to be seen as caring, modern, flexible places someone may want to invest their time into...they should consider a virtual internship program. This is actual, tangible help.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.  

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H
