The best networking event for female students interested in IT!
TARGETjobs Events are proud to present IT's not just for the boys!, an event designed exclusively for female students who are looking to find out more about technology careers.
Attendees will network with top recruiters, discuss internships and graduate schemes for 2016 and beyond, and take part in skills sessions and team challenges designed to showcase teamwork, problem solving and communication. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions to recent graduates and senior managers on their roles within the companies, and how to follow in their footsteps!
Technology is not all about computers, and whilst a knowledge of programming is beneficial for some technology roles, recruiters are looking to meet students with a passion and drive for IT, so if you're an innovative team player, who's ambitious, eager to learn and looking for a varied and exciting career there will be a role for you!
Details of event partners and speakers will be confirmed nearer to the time.
