Datacom has created a new award in conjunction with Microsoft’s Imagine Cup competition. The award is open to members of the teams of this year’s Imagine Cup.
The winner will have the choice of a paid six month internship or a three month holiday internship and three months mentoring in Datacom’s Microsoft enterprise & mid-market solutions team, based in Auckland.
Datacom’s CEO Greg Davidson is one of the judges of Microsoft’s Imagine Cup and Kerry Topp, general manager of Datacom’s Microsoft enterprise & mid-market solutions team has been volunteering his time to mentor one of the Auckland based student teams.
According to Vernon Kay, director of the Auckland software and integration division, the winner “is going to be part of an exciting team working with Microsoft technologies”. “From day one they’ll be working with our talented staff and our customers who want us to make a significant difference to their business. They will be heavily involved in designing, building and delivering solutions. This is a chance to spend time in a leading company and work on real projects – and get paid doing it,” he adds.
The Datacom Scholarship Award will be officially announced at the New Zealand Imagine Cup Festival in Auckland on 12 April. Applicants will be able to download the application form at www.datacom.co.nz after the Imagine Cup Finals Ceremony on 12 April.
