The Southern Institute of Technology will host Information Technology (IT) industry leader Intergen on 14 May. Intergen specialises in the design, development and integration of business knowledge, information technology and creativity. The company was formed in 2001 and now has offices around New Zealand, Australia and Western United States, providing IT solutions based exclusively on Microsoft's tools and technologies.
Lauren Fayen, Intergen In-House Recruiter of People and Performance will undertake a presentation at the SIT IT Faculty pitching Intergen as a graduate employment destination to students and explaining the recruitment process for this. Intergen representatives have successfully visited SIT over the previous two years in a recruitment drive to secure SIT IT graduates, with three SIT graduates gaining employment with the company.
Fayen wants to “continue building our brand among SIT students for both this years and future year’s graduates. We would love to be able to bring on more SIT grads”. Lauren also says “the SIT graduates have stood out to us as talented and highly capable individuals. Upon joining Intergen they have been able to run with the fast pace nature of our organisation and have immediately become assets to our culture. Our SIT graduates rapidly began adding value from day one.”
SIT Bachelor of Information Technology graduate Thomas Rowe says, “Of all the places I hoped to work after graduating, Intergen had to be my number one. Every day I work with and alongside talented individuals, as part of a diverse and highly-motivated team and I love every second of it.”
