Industry Connect are the talk of the IT world again!

This time it’s because of an article on, the website dedicated to science, technology, innovation & commercialisation. Both Ray and Andrew were interviewed for the article, and Industry Connect’s goals, mission and method all came through loud and clear!

Peter Kerr, the writer and owner of, was impressed by Industry Connect’s ability to fill the need for New Zealand software developers, while at the same time find work for those who need it the most. Many of our students come from overseas, already with degrees, but no job. We help bridge the gap between the two.

Our Job ready programme is six weeks long; three nights per week, three hours per night. It’s as simple as that. the course is deigned not just for Graduates, but anyone who has a history in development. Many people dabbled in University, but don’t have the skills to get a job, so we are here to up-skill them. Other’s were developers back in the day, but had to stop for one reason or another, and now they want back in. Industry Connect helps get them back in the game. Occasionally there will even be someone with no coding experience at all! Someone who’s fed up with their career choice, and wants the James Bond lifestyle of a software developer. We can help them too.

“… we have injected over 150 people into the IT Sector over the previous two years…”

Once the six week course is over, students can join us for a voluntary three month internship. This allows them to gain invaluable knowledge and experience. It’s all well and good learning how to code, but the experience as an intern will teach students how to deal with clients, meet deadlines and work with others. It’s also a springboard to finding a job, and for many, that also means Residency in New Zealand.

And it works! Industry Connect has injected over 150 people into the IT Sector over the previous two years, a significant amount of newly skilled and dedicated works for the economy. We’re joining the skilled developers with the shortage of skilled workers New Zealand is crying out for. It’s something we are passionate about, and it’s terrifically satisfying.
