Enterprise software provider, TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE), won the trophy for the first time at the annual game decathlon held at the company’s headquarters in Brisbane.
The networking event is an opportunity for local students to engage software experts at TechnologyOne before applying for the company’s graduate intake at the end of each year.
Currently, as part of its graduate program offering, TechnologyOne commits to onboarding 20 new science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates as well as endeavouring to fill any open research and development positions throughout the year.
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) alumni, Brett Hooker, said the event showcased TechnologyOne’s commitment of engaging with local STEM students.
“Australia has a growing shortage of STEM-qualified professionals, and it is critical that we, as can Australian software company, get students interested in technology to sustain and grow our national technology industry,” he added.“Not only does it ensure we remain at the forefront of the industry, but it also ensures we are investing in the success of the IT industry as a whole. Australia’s knowledge industries will be the future of our economy, and it is vital that businesses invest in the industry, universities and young talent.”
