New Zealand needs IT Graduates

IT Graduates are in HOT DEMAND! This is no more evident than the fact that leading IT company XERO is currently looking to hire another 50 team members in NZ and is hoping todays budget announcement will deliver measures to send more IT graduates out into the marketplace.

This morning, when asked about what today’s budget might hold, Victoria Crone, Xero NZ Managing Director said that one of the big issues for her company is the skills shortage in the digital economy and they hope there will be something in today’s announcement to address that. “We are looking for initiatives to encourage more people graduating with IT Skills”.
