NPDC’s Puke Ariki training just the job for Graduate Software Developer
A New Plymouth man has turned a stay in MIQ into a brighter future with the help of NPDC’s Puke Ariki.
Taylor Nelson completed a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Computer Science in Kansas, USA, and returned home to New Plymouth last year due to Covid.
During his two weeks in managed isolation Taylor began job hunting and soon realised that he needed to upskill his qualifications if he was going to land a job in his desired IT industry.
Through this upskilling Taylor picked up a job at the University of Canterbury as a Graduate Software Developer and he attributes much of his success to the training he had through LinkedIn Learning.
“The courses were high quality, easily accessible, and recognised by my employer,” Taylor says. “It was a great way to develop my knowledge in those areas over a short period of time.”
“LinkedIn is a valuable tool for anyone looking to upskill and further their career,” says Puke Ariki’s Library Collections, Access and Digital Lead Angela Jowitt. “Puke Ariki has a range of other free digital tools for people to use if they have a library card, including 3D design, graphic design, Ancestry and our online film and documentary streaming services Kanopy and Beama.”
