Real stories from real people working in tech

Careers in Tech Speaker Panel

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 into technology. And just as many specialties!

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 of 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 event is your chance to hear stories from young tech professionals, and get hands on account of how they got started. Our speakers work for corporate organisations and startups, education, and some have started their own company.

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 opportunity for Q&A, so don’t hesitate to be curious and bring your questions!

Who is this event for:

Youth exploring possibilities

Students starting out in a tech career qualification

People looking for a change or returning to work

Whanau, caregivers, teachers and community leaders wanting to support those considering a career in tech

Anyone curious about the sector and its potential for human development.

This community event listing is made possible with the support of NZTech
