The Side Benefits
There is more to this arrangement with Xplornet than landing employment directly out of school. It lets students build their résumés.

Learning how to communicate complex concepts to non-experts helps to set the foundation for senior IT positions.
Xplornet also promotes from within its own ranks, which means that Eastern students can expect upward mobility in exchange for their hard work and expertise.
