Re­ward­ing IT ca­reers at NZSE

Central Leader - - NEWS EDUCATION& TRAINING -

The in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy in­dus­try of­fers fan­tas­tic po­ten­tial for a re­ward­ing ca­reer. But what does it take to be no­ticed if you are seek­ing em­ploy­ment?

Rhodes Pil­imon, the Ca­reer Ser­vices Man­ager at the New Zealand School of Ed­u­ca­tion (NZSE) – one of the largest in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy ed­u­ca­tion providers in the coun­try – says the in­dus­try is look­ing for work­place ready grad­u­ates with in­dus­try recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.

‘‘At NZSE we make sure our stu­dents have strong foun­da­tions,’’ Rhodes says.

‘‘We achieve this through a va­ri­ety of learn­ing meth­ods.’’ Th­ese meth­ods in­clude: CV work­shops Em­ploy­ment prepa­ra­tion work­shops Mock in­ter­views One-to-one coach­ing In­tern­ships En­gage­ment with rel­e­vant ICT stake­hold­ers

NZSE de­vel­ops highly ca­pa­ble grad­u­ates through its hands-on prac­ti­cal ap­proach to in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy. Stu­dents are trained and equipped with the skills and knowl­edge re­quired to en­ter not just the work­place but the in­dus­try with con­fi­dence.

Ca­reer Ser­vices at NZSE looks to of­fer end to end and con­tin­ued sup­port to stu­dents through­out the stu­dents’ jour­ney. The en­tire fo­cus of the Ca­reer Ser­vices depart­ment is to help make the stu­dents work­place ready so that upon com­ple­tion of their course they feel con­fi­dent about ap­proach­ing em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

This is sig­nif­i­cant be­cause in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy is a vast and con­stantly evolv­ing field with mul­ti­ple ca­reer streams.

To­mor­row’s lead­ers: NZSE grad­u­ates have the edge in the job mar­ket.
