Internships do you, dont you will you, wont you why, why not? Tell us what you think!

Friday June 22, 2018

The Digital Skills Forum is an industry/ government partnership working to improve firms’ ability to access the skilled people they need. In conjunction with Summer of Tech and the Wellington, Auckland and SIGNAL ICT Graduate Schools the Forum is running a quick survey to get a read on what firms think and do about working with digital technology interns. The findings will help us figure out how to better connect studying and work through internships.

This short survey will only take about 5-10 minutes (or less!) – and we’d really like to hear from you. So please follow the link below and have your say. And please feel free to send the link to other employers. Thanks in advance for your support!

(By the way, some of you may have participated in a recent survey specifically about the ICT Graduate Schools that was run by Martin Jenkins for the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). The Digital Skills Forum’s survey at the link below asks different questions, for a different purpose – so please do help with this one too!)
