Get to know Appnovation's Fall 2017 cohort of post-secondary co-op students.
This September 2017 has been both busy and exciting here at Appnovation! We've relocated to a brand new office in the Railtown area of Vancouver, BC, we've hopped into a brand new fiscal year, and we've hired a super cool group of co-op students to help break in the new digs. As the recruiter of co-op students, I am pleased to introduce our latest undergrad Appnovators to you:
Albert Cherng, New Business Coordinator Co-op
Program: Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) specializing in Business Technology Management (BTM) at The University of British Columbia.
Albert is looking forward to working with an amazing team and learning the ins and outs of Appnovation, a digital solutions and managed services provider. What he really enjoys about his team is how are teaching and challenging him to think of ways to improve existing processes. Every day, he gets to work on something new and cool. In the longer term, he would love to own a restaurant!
A random fact about him is that he loves to cook (and finds it therapeutic!) In fact, right now, he's quite proud of his guacamole. Now, he's currently working on perfecting beef tongue tacos!
Jean-Paul Morneau, New Business Coordinator Co-op
Program: Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), concentrating in Management Information Systems (MIS)
Jean-Paul is looking forward to improving his technical knowledge and growing his network in the Open Technologies industry. He would like to somehow combine his hospitality experience, business mentality, and technical knowledge down the road.
A fun fact about Jean-Paul is he's a certified Glider Pilot (and was an air cadet for 5.5 years).
Antoine Torossian, Project Analyst Co-op
Program: Electrical Engineering at The University of British Columbia
Antoine is attending The University of British Columbia for electrical engineering in the biomedical option. He thinks a co-op term at Appnovation will greatly improve his object-oriented programming and teach him how to efficiently integrate frameworks in projects, which he is excited to learn about. Long term, he doesn’t have a set plan yet for where he wants to be exactly, but the tech sector is definitely the direction he intends to continue to grow in.
A fun fact is when he was 6 years old he broke my leg while running from his brother and his friends.
