Internships – do you, don’t you – will you, won’t you?

Tell us what you think about hiring interns!

We produce a lot of talented graduates in New Zealand, but they sometimes get caught in a cycle where they can’t get a job because they don’t have work experience, but they can’t get work experience because they don’t have a job.
Internships – a period of real work within a firm during or at the end of study – can be a really valuable way of breaking that cycle and helping students become the experienced workers you want to hire.
The Digital Skills Forum is an industry/ government partnership working to improve firms’ ability to access the skilled people they need. We’re partnering with them, alongside NZTech Industry Association, NZRise, the ITP and the Wellington, Auckland and SIGNAL ICT Graduate Schools the Forum to run a quick survey to understand 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 and we’d really like to hear from you. Please feel free to send the link to other employers. Thanks in advance for your support!
