Posted on behalf of Target Jobs
It’s been a very busy couple of months for TARGETjobs events but the hard work has paid off. We regularly run two networking events designed exclusively for female STEM students IT’s not just for the boys! and Future female engineers.
These events are fantastic opportunities for students to meet recruiters and graduates from major employers, hear from inspiring senior female representatives, mingle with other ambitious STEM students and find out what skills recruiters are looking for. If students are thinking of applying to any of the event partners, it’s also a chance to introduce themselves and mention the event in their application. More information on each below.
IT’s not just for the boys!
Our IT’s not just for the boys! event travels all across the UK and over 70 students took part on the 28 October at J.P. Morgan’s offices in London. We’ve also recently run events at J.P. Morgan’s offices in Glasgow and Bloomberg’s offices in London. Students can still apply for a place at our next IT’s not just for the boys! event on 2 December at Capital One’s offices in Nottingham. Accenture, E.ON, J.P. Morgan, Next, Thomson Reuters and ThoughtWorks are all attending. Can’t make this? Then sign up for the February event instead.
Future female engineers
Our most recent Future female engineers event on 7 November saw over 90 female STEM students join us at Atkins’ HQ in Bristol. Attendees had the chance to talk to recruiters and graduates from 11 top engineering employers, including AECOM, BAE Systems, Network Rail and Siemens, and hear from inspiring senior female engineers. We’re excited to announce that our next Future female engineers event will be at Arup in spring 2017 and we’re looking forward to meeting more ambitious female STEM students.
