University of Auckland partners with Google to train digital professionals
Posted on 20-May-2013 17:16. | Tags Filed under: News.



The University of Auckland is partnering with Google to provide their students with the opportunity to gain the edge in a competitive graduate employment market.

The University and Google have invited their final year students and recent graduates to up-skill in digital marketing and to address an industry shortage of web strategists, digital marketing experts and web designers in New Zealand.

“This is an exciting new partnership between Google and the University to help students become Google certified”, says University Career Development and Employment Services Manager, Catherine Stephens. “It’s another way for the University to support students to build their preferred future and further develop their employability skills.”

Last weekend, (May 18/19) the University in partnership with Google held a free seminar on campus to teach web skills that will help students find work in digital marketing. More than 140 students attended the seminar and have the opportunity to gain an industry recognised Google certification.

“It’s an applied qualification that will enable our students and graduates to be proficient in digital marketing, giving them an advantage when seeking employment,” says Ms Stephens.

In early June, graduates from the seminar can then attend a University networking function to meet employers with job opportunities in digital marketing and sales. Employer registrations are open till 4 June.
