Yoobee School of Design Wellington is very please to be working with Summer of Tech this year. Summer of Tech is a world-class internship programme matching smart Wellington technology students with innovative New Zealand employers, for paid summer internships. The internship provides the student with real life work experience in software development, computer engineering, digital design, game development, information systems, web, mobile and much, much more.
This year 646 students and 41 employers participated. To help students up skill technically and professionally, and be ready for the local employers, Yoobee School of Design hosted 3 bootcamps on our Wellington campus. Zheng Li, owner of Zing Design and a Yoobee graduate ran one of the bootcamps at Yoobee. The feedback from students was great. A Victoria University student said “I was hugely influenced by Zheng's session, she was the best designer /advisor I met”. The paid summer internship runs from November to February and two Yoobee Web Development students have been selected this year. Rhys Wong will be working for rewardjunkie! and Jessica Nicholl for Zing Design, “Being involved in Summer of Tech has been a great experience for us and our students. We are definitely keen to do more next year” said Serena Marston Yoobee’s Student Employment Coordinator.
