And we’re off!

Summer of Biz, younger sibling to Summer of Tech has officially launched at the Victoria University of Wellington campus this week. This launch comes at the end of months of hard work put in by our volunteers and it was great to see such a large turnout for our first event!

Coming from varied backgrounds and experiences these panellists had some great words of wisdom for those embarking on HR and Marketing careers. This was too good not to share so we’ve summarised their key pointers for you!

Here’s what our Summer of Tech graduates had to say on how to get the most out of Summer of Biz as a student

Getting to our official Summer of Biz launch event this week felt like the finish line for many of our volunteers who have been involved in getting this project off the ground for the past 8 months however for our fantastic students this is actually the start line! We’re looking forward to seeing what great talent comes out from our students this year and watching them grow and learn as they connect with our top industry talent.
