In light of reports of a growing need to increase student enrollment in computer science courses, Neoris and Junior Achievement Worldwide (JA) today announced a partnership to motivate and inspire students to pursue careers in technology. Neoris will serve as host to JA’s successful “Job Shadow Day” program at all Neoris offices worldwide.
The Tuesday, November 30 event is part of Neoris’ celebration of its 10-year anniversary as a leading global business and IT consultancy specializing in SAP and application outsourcing. Bringing high-school students to Neoris’ corporate headquarters in Miami and offices in, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Madrid, the event is part of the company’s NEOfrontiers program, its newly minted initiative to help create the next generation of technology leaders.
Student enrollment in computer science courses began declining after the dot-com bust and the recession. A shortage of technology innovators weakens the nation’s ability to compete in the global economy. Neoris’ objective: to educate students about the growing field of technology and how the industry drives the future of innovation.
Throughout the day, students will “shadow” Neoris employees to witness firsthand the educational background and skills they will need to succeed in the workplace. In addition to learning about Neoris’ innovative business solutions, including its Video Wall that provides businesses with broad visibility and control of their operations, students will participate in videoconferences with Neoris’ global offices. They also will speak with Neoris CEO Claudio Murazabal, a longtime advocate for youth education and a former President of Junior Achievement’s Administrative Council in Argentina. The Miami event takes place from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. November 30 at Neoris, 703 Waterford Way, Suite 700, Miami, Fla., 33136.
Of the Miami-Dade students selected to take part, two have started their own small business repairing computers after school. We can coordinate interviews with these students, as well as with technology innovators with Neoris. Neoris CEO, Claudio Murazabal, is a longtime advocate for youth education and a former President of Junior Achievement’s Administrative Council in Argentina.
