Demand for digital skills continues to grow. Considering a career in tech opens a world of opportunities for youth, those starting out, looking for a change or returning to work.
There are multiple career paths in technology. And just as many specialities!
Navigating what can be right for you can be daunting if you’ve had limited experience or exposure to technology!
How do you know if a career in tech is for you? And which web development, database management, security (just to name a few!) would you want to specialise in?
How do you get the experience and support you need before you start?
This free event is your chance to hear stories from young tech professionals, and get a first-hand account of how they got started.
They will talk about their work, how they got into it, what they actually do, and share their passion for tech and anything digital.
A panel discussion will follow the individual presentations to explore the skillset and mindset required to thrive in a tech world in constant evolution.
There will be an opportunity for Q&A, so don’t hesitate to be curious and bring your questions!

Youth exploring possibilities, students starting out in a tech career qualification, people looking for a change or returning to work.
