Buddy with Grads
Most technology grads have the right skills to inform small business about how to get onlin, build social media pages and content and also do high level requirements and process maps for their key business outcomes.
If the government could pair up interested grads with a keen SMB then it would work well as a symbiotic relationship. The grad would learn all about business operations, finances, staff challenges etc while sharing their expertise on basic technology roadmap.
The grad could be offered a 10-20% discount on their hecs fees for working on a 6 month assignment with a small business plus it would look great on their resume and open up doors for other opportunities
Why the contribution is important
Gives the grad real world experience and insights into business operation and strategy. And offers technology advice to small businesses in a cost effective way.
in addition to training having access to a real person to talk and discuss technology issues and business needs is vital to uplift the digital capability of the small business sector in Australia.
