Shift

Employed! Great outcomes from Industry Projects at the Christchurch Showcase.

Thursday March 21, 2019

 Industry Projects are an integral component of the SHIFT programme and give students the opportunity to gain valuable connections and world-class work experience. We heard first hand from our students, and their industry mentors, about the trials, learning and successes of their SHIFT Industry projects. One of the projects, with Orbica, is profiled here.

For two of the industry hosts, this was their second time taking SIGNAL students for the Industry Project component of the course.

The cohort consisted of eight students and six have secured employment while the other two are travelling and preparing to move within NZ.  A wonderful result showing you truly can SHIFT into a tech career.

During the showcase mentors gave feedback on the student they had hosted and the experience:

The students have gone into a variety of roles following their Industry Projects, these include:

· Fullstack Developer

· Graduate Software Developer

· Business Systems Analyst

· Marketing and Events Manager

· Web apps Developer

We are excited to follow the careers of these students as they progress and are looking forward to the next Showcase event!

We'd like to extend a big 'Thank You!' to our Industry Hosts:

Canterbury Cricket

Cerebral Fix

Christchurch City Council

Digital Journey

Orbica

Orion Health

Plant & Food Research
