Deloitte searches for top technology talent
Deloitte has launched its Top Technology Talent Competition for 2011, which seeks to discover innovative ideas from university students on how technology can solve a business problem.
Five finalists will be chosen to present their business plans to a judging panel of technology industry experts at Deloitte’s London offices in April. The winner will be able to choose either a £1,000 prize or four weeks paid work experience in Deloitte’s technology integration practice.
In 2010, Moonwon Lee from Trinity College, Dublin won the competition for her business plan to develop multi-carrier mobile broadband access.
“Deloitte’s Top Technology Talent competition is all about finding the best ideas from the finest minds amongst the next generation of technology talent,” says Paul Mordue, Deloitte technology partner. “It’s one thing having an understanding of how technology works, but quite another understanding how to successfully use it to enhance a business. The competition reflects the kind of challenges that Deloitte’s clients present our technology consulting business with every day.”
The closing date for entries is March 11, and further information can be found at: http://www.deloitte.co.uk/toptechtalent2011.
