NSG is pleased to welcome Susan Stead as our marketing intern for the next few months. She is a second year student of International Business Studies (IBS) at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, Maastrict, in the Netherlands. With a fascination for communication, Susan is majoring in international logistics, marketing, finances, and business English.
As well as speaking German (her mother tongue), Susan is fluent in English and has been learning Dutch, French and Spanish.
Christopher and Aneta have proved to be a great match to NSG this summer. They both slotted into their roles with ease and have made a significant contribution to project delivery. We wish them all the very best with their studies and of course look forward to seeing them again soon.

After my interviews with NSG, I was left with a strong impression that there was a breadth of opportunity available with an emphasis on learning and career progression. The experience of working at NSG has been extremely rewarding and I’m looking forward to coming back to NSG next holidays.
I can’t emphasise enough the value in working with a highly experienced team in project delivery. Working with the latest Microsoft .NET technologies within the GIS space has been a stimulating platform to develop on. I have learned a lot about the importance of working closely with clients to meet their specific needs. This ethic coincides strongly with my own outlook towards providing a good service. By developing strong client relationships, NSG inspires a high level of comfort and confidence with solution delivery.
This year I’ll be completing my Bachelor of Engineering degree at Victoria University. My time spent at NSG this summer has been enjoyable. The experience has provided me insight towards the direction I’d like to accelerate my software career. NSG have set the bar very high in my mind for what an ideal working environment looks like.
See you later in the year!
Soon it is time to return to my life as a student and continue my Bachelor of Software Engineering at Victoria University. It has been a good summer of tech for me at NSG and I am so pleased that I have had the chance to work with Microsoft technologies. -The very best thing has been working with C#, I absolutely love it. You may ask what is the hardest thing about going back to Varsity? Java!!
This summer promises to be one of creative problem solving with interns Aneta Stevanovic and Chris Green. Summer of Tech is a world-class internship programme matching smart technology students with innovative New Zealand employers – so Aneta and Christopher will be right at home with us!
Aneta is in her second year of a Bachelor of Software Engineering at Victoria University. She is particularly interested in the interrelationships between web applications and databases.
Chris is also a Victoria University student, and in his fourth year of a Bachelor of Engineering degree, majoring in Software. He is passionate about designing and implementing software systems to meet the needs of clients – and is also rather good at performing card tricks too.
Aneta and Christopher will be working on a variety of projects and they will be blogging about their experiences as they match their skills to GIS solutions this summer.
The past three weeks have gone so quickly, it’s hard to believe that I have been a GIS intern for three weeks already. This week started off pretty slow with most of my time spent scanning… one bonus of all this scanning is that I haven’t felt so guilty if I don’t go for a run after work as the scanner is upstairs and I have to press scan on my computer downstairs.

I have just finished my 2nd week as a GIS intern. I spent most of my first week learning what EGL does and some of the systems that they use. This week has been more hands on and I have been involved in various projects.

I have just finished my Bachelor of Science majoring in Geography and Psychology at the University of Canterbury and next year I intend to start the new Masters in GIS (MGIS) program also through the University of Canterbury.
