As DRN ReadiTech’s HR manager, I work with a variety of people every day and enjoy the diversity of our team-from accountants handling the financial aspects of the company to network analysts overseeing the technical networks. Our company has grown from a small telephone cooperative founded in 1950 to provide state-of-the-art fiber-optic service and other innovative IT products and services to our region in 2020.

The cooperative has expanded and experienced a lot of change in 70 years. What hasn’t changed, however, is our commitment to our members, clients, and employees. I’m pleased DRN ReadiTech was named one of the ‘50 Best Places to Work in the Northern Plains’ by Prairie Business Magazine in 2019! Because our employees are at the heart of what we do, taking care of them helps provide the best services to our clients. 

As a DRN Readitech employee, I value the growth I’ve personally experienced since I started in 2000. After two incredible decades, I’m honored and humbled to work for an amazing company and with a remarkable team of people.  Reflecting on the past twenty years, I feel fortunate to help our employees develop and advance in their careers as they achieve great things for our company!

 

The technology career field will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. If you or someone you know is currently looking for a job opportunity, DRN ReadiTech recently announced openings for a sales account executive, and several internships in IT, marketing and sales.

If you’re in college or simply looking for a new direction in your career path, knowing your values, passions, and skills will help you find the right career.

Here are a few ideas to help get you started:

Find what you enjoy: Do you like working with numbers and charts, doing event planning or repairing computers and electronics?

Look for a mentor: Do you have a college professor, previous teacher or know a professional who you admire? If so, see if you can learn more about how your mentor chose a career path and gained a sense of direction.

Join a professional business group in your area or online: Join one and network. The more you talk with others, the more you’ll learn about possible jobs that might be a great fit for you. According to Lou Adler, author of Hiring & Getting Hired, most employees and employers find their current job through networking.
