Networking event connects IT students to regional employers

On January 31, the Conestoga student chapter of the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS) held its first event at the Doon campus -- a Speed Networking Night to connect 60 IT students with nearly 20 employers and IT professionals throughout the region.

CIPS is a national non-profit organization that serves as the professional association for Information Technology practitioners in Canada. Founded in 1958, CIPS is focused on IT excellence through its work on public policy, setting standards within the profession and providing IT support to its community. It has also instituted a Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct for its members and coordinates educational conferences and networking opportunities.

Lucas Kaastra and Margaret Tavares, both Conestoga Computer Programmer/Analyst students, serve on the executive board of the college’s CIPS chapter and spearheaded the planning and coordination of the Speed Networking Night. Students in attendance were grouped in teams of four and given the chance to circulate and talk with each guest employer and IT professional.
