CHICAGO: TimeZoneOne, a global creative communications agency, is honored to celebrate four years of partnership with Auckland University of Technology (AUT) for its Internz International Scholarship Program. The program is designed to help transition and fast-track AUT graduates into the career world through full immersion in a new market and culture. Since 2017, TimeZoneOne (TZO) has hosted eight interns from AUT’s internship program to work on various teams at its global headquarters in Chicago. TZO was the first Chicago business to partner with AUT.
First conceived in 2014, AUT’s Internz International Scholarship Program matches around 30 graduates per year with businesses in North America, Asia and the United Kingdom, giving them the chance to develop professional skills, discover new passions and get their first taste of corporate life.
“Over the last four years, TimeZoneOne has been an integral part of our AUT Internz Program and we’ve been impressed by their massive commitment to developing graduate talent,” said Dr. Andrea Vujnovich, Assistant Vice-Chancellor Corporate and General Counsel, AUT. “TimeZoneOne is certainly an employer of choice for our students and graduates – and we’re so pleased to have the opportunity to continue providing fresh talent.”
“The AUT Internz program has been an incredible opportunity for me to gain international work experience in my chosen field,” said Jessica Moorby, AUT intern with TimeZoneOne’s Client Engagement team. “In the last year, I’ve developed relationships with clients, attended instrumental networking events and gained experiences that I could have only received through my internship at TZO.”
This month, TimeZoneOne welcomes its newest AUT intern, Bryan Law, who joins the agency’s digital marketing team. “I'm excited to have this epic opportunity to dive in and work with the creative marketing minds at TZO. I look forward to learning as much as possible from an award-winning global agency and living in the Windy City of Chicago makes it that much sweeter,” said Bryan Law.
