PEC Alumni Catherine Toca, shown in the attached photograph from her days at PEC, recently joined Amazon as a data centre technician with a starting salary well in excess of 50K. In order to be chosen for the position, she had to undergo a series of interviews spread out over a number of months. She is the first student from PEC to work for Amazon. Amazon recently became only the second company in the world with a market value in excess of one trillion dollars. It is a major industry player in using new technologies and innovation to make delivery of its services and products to its customers in a very cost effective and user friendly manner.
To achieve this, they select only the “crème de la crème” for employment. Those chosen must adhere to, and maintain, extremely high standards of professionalism and efficiency. For the successful, the opportunity provides a lifelong career path that is the envy of their peers. We at PEC hope that Catherine’s hiring will open the door to other graduates. However, in order to be considered, students must adhere to the code of conduct and excel academically. In addition, students must actively participate in Centre activities.
Catherine was a model student and was a great example of what is expected of our students. We take this opportunity to congratulate her and wish her all the best in future endeavors.
