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. Did I think I would be interested in Tech Consulting? Not before I did this. It seemed stuffy and hands-off.

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.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
