Outstanding Business of the Month: Alphazone Computers
Alphazone Computers provides on-site service, repair or upgrade of computers at your home or office. Based in Ingleburn, their team of experts are enthusiastic, highly skilled, good communicators who strive to have your computer up and running as quickly as possible.
Alphazone Computers was established in 2001 and for the past six years, Vincent Chan, Manager has offered HSC students, studying Information Technology as part of their HSC, the opportunity to undertake hands-on learning.
Vincent sees this as an ideal way to give back to the community. He says “Supporting students who are interested in computers is very important. Experience and knowledge do not come immediately and if young people are not given a chance, how will they succeed? It’s also a great way to assess students. I remember an outstanding student from Leumeah High school, Ben De Groot, who we nominated for the Honour Roll back in 2009. He contacted me late last year and I jumped at the opportunity to hire him.”
Vincent adds “If you are not involved with the MWLP program, please pick up the phone and talk to them. It will be beneficial to your company. You get an insight into your business from a young person’s perspective. The MWLP team are approachable and supportive and they look after all the students and host employers.”
As this month’s outstanding winner, Alphazone Computers will receive profiling in the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on www.mwlp.com.au and thanks to United Cinemas Narellan, Grand Seating movie tickets.
