How to run awesome tech internships
“The tech industry has a lot of hiring to do. According to the Tech City 2017 report, “the digital sector is creating jobs 2X faster than the non digital sector”. At the same time, the tech industry is lacking ways of helping those in underrepresented groups get their first tech role. A possible solution to both of these issues? More internships!
There are lots of things to consider with internships; how, what, who and where do I advertise? Where do I start? It can be a bit daunting. So as a seasoned intern and very active participant in the diversity in tech movement, Beverley has a lot of advice and tips to share with you all on how to go about internship success.”
Usual format is to gather from 7:30pm and commence the talks at 8:00pm. Talks are ~20mins + Q&A with a break of 20mins for networking and beer.
*Before the second session there is an opportunity for any short announcements so please let us know on the night if you would like a slot or 1-2mins.
FYI: BCS (Berkshire) Social Tech Group meet up (7PM) before our talks. Its a great opportunity for food, drinks, networking and discussions about IT technology, business and advice.
Look forward to seeing you there!
