MT. PLEASANT, S.C. – September 10, 2015 – Bluetowne, a leading provider of innovative information technology solutions, today announced that it will host Eric Salley, near ECPI graduate, as an extern.

Each student at ECPI is required to complete an externship with a company in their field before they graduate to hone the skills that they acquired through the University’s hands-on curriculum. It is this kind of comprehensive preparation that makes ECPI graduates more marketable to potential employers.

Eric will work with senior-level engineers to ensure that Bluetowne’s cloud and enterprise customers have the best possible deployment and environment in which to transact business. Additionally, Eric will provide valuable documentation, VMware support case management and on-going support resolution management.

Eric is a retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant who served as a Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic and Maintenance Manager at various military bases. He has served three deployments to Iraq and one to Egypt.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to host Eric, and feel that the experience will be rewarding for both parties” said Eric Hartley, President, Bluetowne. “Eric will gain the hands-on experience he needs to put his knowledge to the test, explore his career options, and begin building a professional network. Bluetowne will benefit from Eric’s fresh perspective and enthusiasm.” Hartley continued, “Bluetowne is passionate about helping to ensure that Eric, as well as other local tech talent, has every opportunity to succeed and to enjoy a meaningful and rewarding career.”
