IT's not just for the boys!

11:15 - 16:30 | Virtual

IT’s not just for the boys! that’s why targetjobs has created this employability event where you can find out how to secure a role in the tech industry, fast-track your application and network with other women who have a passion for tech. Build your network by making connections through networking and ‘how to get hired’ sessions. Meet some of the leading women in tech, hear about their experiences and see how you can follow in their footsteps.

Boost your CV. Attending IT’s not just for the boys! will not only allow you to speak directly to recruiters who will tell you exactly what a successful CV looks like; the event itself is a fantastic addition to your CV. It shows you have a keen interest in technology and that you are actively seeking personal development. The event will also be another way of showcasing your interpersonal skills.

Practise for the real thing in a supportive environment. We have put together a series of sessions that give you the information and advice to succeed on paper and in interviews. There’s also a practical team challenge to break the ice and develop your team-working and time-management skills that you’ll need at future assessment centres.

Find your pathway into technology and talk to inspirational women. You will hear from senior women in tech, graduates/interns and other students like you with a passion for technology.
