Please help Companies hire more NZ Students!

📷I am always looking for ways to help make NZ students/business more competitive.

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.
