After speaking on the phone to a person at church headquarters about the LDSTECH internship program I was referred to http://www.lds.jobs.com/. After reviewing the jobs posted there I found it would be difficult for me to receive any positions listed. The church understandably has high standards of qualifications for thier employees. However, because I do not have a bachelor's degree I am excluded from meeting the requirements for most of these jobs.
I have over twenty years of computer enthusiast/hobbyist experience and am in the process of educating myself about software programming using reference books, technical podcasts and internet resources, I have been to college and have earned several credits. I have planned to return to college next January and study toward my bachelor's degree in computer science.
I have arranged my life so that I can attend church, go to work and take care of my family responsibilities. I have two weekdays free and wish to help in the church IT/IS department, specifically in the software development office. I was told that the qualification standards for internships is the same as for regular employees. Because it seems I do not qualify to work for the church in this department I wonder if I could be an unpaid volunteer. I would consider it a blessing to work in this environment and gain the skills and experience I would receive. If the personal nature of this post is not appropriate for this semi-public setting, I apologize.
Some discussions just don't fit into a well defined box. Use this forum to discuss general topics and issues revolving around the Church and the technology offerings we use and share.
