It was a pleasure hosting Grade 11 and Grade 12 students from Kingsville District High School on December 4th. Thanks to Mr. Jim Buschman for bringing in the students again this year.
The students were introduced to AlphaKOR, the industry and were given a tour of the facility. Along the way, they met the team and learned what it is like to be a software developer, corporate sales rep, digital marketer and being a technician.
Julie provided details of what it is like being a digital marketer. Tauseef from our Design department demonstrated some of the software tools AlphaKOR has developed. The s students asked some questions to our President to know and understand the opportunities at AlphaKOR, in the IT and Innovations sector in WindsorEssex Region. Social media tips on some things to do and not to do were shared along with character building and building their professional network as they start to enter their careers.
We would like to thank the students, Kingsville District High School and The GECDSB for this opportunity to help the students think about this exciting field and to stay local as they become our professionals of the future.
