Shift Shift Cohorts SHIFT Industry Projects

Speed Networking - Meet the Chch Cohort

Wednesday May 8, 2019

Industry Projects are completed part-time in the second semester of the SHIFT programme. We pair a SHIFT student with a company-based project which gives the student real-world tech experience over 200 hours, whilst adding value to your business.

Our Speed Networking event is a great opportunity to meet the diverse and dedicated career changing SHIFT cohort, and to see if there is a potential fit with your organisation and project goals.

SIGNAL is focused on building stronger connections and networks. This in turn leads to a sense of community and camaraderie, which leads to a stronger working relationships in the long-term.  A win/win all round!

If your organisation could benefit from an extra set of hands to start, continue, or finish a project then come along and meet our students.  Get to know them and tell them about your organisation and the exciting work you do.

The next 'Speed Networking’ event will be held on Tuesday 11 June, 2.30pm - 4pm.  If your organisation is interested in participating or would like more info, please contact Lenore on 027 563 9836 or chch@signal.ac.nz
