Tech & Data Careers Day (2022 date TBC)

Please Note

The information below relates to our 2020/21 event, which was held online. We will be providing similar opportunities for you to connect with employers in semester 2 but the format for these events is not yet confirmed.

Why should I attend?

  • This event is for students from all subject areas who are interested in what a career in tech could mean for them - there are opportunities for all.  Around half of the organisations attending will be recruiting students from any discipline. 

  • It offers a chance to challenge your thinking on what a career in tech looks like - the event aims to showcase a range of opportunities and types of organisation of all sizes that come under the Careers in Tech & Data banner. 

  • It is an easy way to chat to a range of organisations offering work experience and graduate roles related to tech.  You can speak to people working there to find out what it is like, get tips for your applications, and ask questions not covered by their websites. 

  • Aswell as chatting to employers who are actively recruiting, talk to the professional and membership bodies exhibiting; they can offer great insights into the overall labour market giving you a solid basis for making decisions and applications. 

  • It doesn’t matter what stage you are at in your course or in planning your career,  come along to this event and find out about options for your future. 

  • Careers Service staff will be there to offer additional support, information and advice. 

It’s great to have a Tech & Data specific event. It was really good; I spoke to several companies who encouraged me to get in touch
