What the heck is this checklist thing?
Summer of Tech’s aspiration is to empower New Zealand’s diverse tech students to bridge the gap between learning and earning, by making it easy and attractive for New Zealand employers to hire them. This checklist is just one of the many ways we are keen to help you hire interns and graduates.
Each month we will add your “need to know” key actions so you can plan and keep on top of the process. As we go we will add tips and tricks for that step. Regardless of whether you have been through Summer of Tech before, we hope you will still find value in checking this monthly.
