It feels odd writing this. I’m not a very open person, but even though my time at WEtech was short – I was contracted for 2 months as a Web Developer as part of the Canada Summer Jobs program – it was extremely positive.
Even before I started officially working for WEtech they didn’t hesitate to make me feel welcome onto their team, inviting me to their social event at Wineology to meet the team and Board of Directors before my first day. All the team was very welcoming and getting to meet everyone was extremely comforting.
All the employees I worked with and interacted with at WEtech are incredibly talented and hardworking. A lot of my time at WEtech I was working remote, but even remotely I could see all the hard work the Marketing and Venture Services teams were putting in.

Throughout my time I worked with the head of the Marketing Department to redesign the homepage which will be live soon. I researched and added more features to the site such as accessibility options to help users with disabilities more easily navigate the site, adding new ways for users to interact with WEtech such as implementing polls and surveys, and improving and optimizing the sites performance and load times.
Endings are hard. When you start something, you think of all the possibilities of what the future might be, but as time passes and the ending draw closer, you’re presented with the reality of how you spent you time and the goals you’ve accomplished. Even though the chapter in my life at WEtech is over, I’m happy with the progress I’ve made over the last two months both personally and professionally, and I wish nothing but the best for everyone at WEtech.
I’ll end with a quote from my favourite show:
“The future is bright, just look at it”
Editors Note: Dave’s future is definitely bright. He has already secured a full time I.T. position right after his Canada Summer Jobs position ended! Congratulations Dave and thanks for all of your hard work, dedication and cheesy jokes (hence his cheese hat parting gift in the header image) these past 8 weeks. We look forwarded to launching our newly updated homepage soon.
Special thanks to Windsor-West MP Brian Masse for his assistance and support of the Canada Summer Jobs program.
