Silicon Valley looks to help Kiwi students

5079_VUW_2639Finding bright, young, determined talent capable of achieving in the Silicon Valley is no easy task and the difficulty of finding good talent increases dramatically during the winter months, when most American students are working to achieve their qualifications.

Meanwhile, halfway across the world, young New Zealand information technology graduates are yearning for the opportunity to prove themselves and make their mark on the global information technology network.

Winternz provides the essential bridge between this swiftly developing talent pool and the technological hub that is the Silicon Valley. The program was founded and is led by World Class New Zealand Award winner Craig Elliot and is supported by Nuwanthie Samarakone and the New Zealand ICE Team. These organisations bring with them the knowledge and resources to effectively supply high functioning organisations with exceptional undergraduate and graduate talent.

You can become a part of this technological movement by providing New Zealand talent with the opportunity to excel in your organisation. We do the rest, including screening, selection, administration and everything else that goes into providing the perfect interns for the opportunities you offer.
