Please help Companies hire more NZ Students!
I would be pleased to talk to your organisation about what I learned from the University of Waterloo coop program and how it could apply here in New Zealand.
My goal is to make it easier in New Zealand for companies to hire students and for more students to get practical job experience.
I have presented this talk to the University of Canterbury Science faculty, the Lincoln University Computer science department, CPIT, Canterbury Software cluster and to the Canterbury Development Corporation .
My talk covers:
Why companies need students
Why they can't get them
Introduction to the University of Waterloo approach to this problem
Why I hired Waterloo students in New Zealand
My experience as a University of Waterloo coop student
Some ideas to help NZ businesses and business
The Waterloo coop student experience, in the students' own words.
