A company called Qualtrics contacted me on my University's job board and told me that I would be a good fit for their Product Specialist position. They seem to be an established tech firm in Utah.
But I am not sure if I understand this role yet at all. It seems that they hire new grads to work tech support and then like rotate them to other parts of the company?
Could someone at Qualtrics give me some more insight into this program and how the company is?

As a product specialist you are given time to step aside from your core job and work on projects with different teams to see how you like that team and the work while developing skills from the project. Once you graduate as a product specialist you can take almost any direction you want. Product specialist alumni are wanted all over the org because of the skills they acquire.

It's a good role for a new grad. It's great if you are not a CS major but want to be an engineer down the line, as this gets your foot in the door. Happy to chat if you would like to dm
