Bring IT On is a programme designed to encourage and educate young people about the career pathways into the IT industry. It is funded by the Department for the Economy and delivered by Belfast Metropolitan College. We provide talks and careers advice to Primary, Post Primary, Post University and Further Education students. We can also help students with information about the qualifications required to obtain an job in technology as well as outlining the benefits of working in the sector, to help young people gain the necessary insight required to progress in the IT sector.
In the IT industry are a lot of projects to get involved with, and with online training material and courses available there are always opportunities for professional development. The IT sector is also a very easy industry to move between projects. This means there are always exciting new opportunities coming up.
I would suggest that a graduate considering a career in IT should look for work experience or a placement to make the most of the opportunities out there. I have found in my time at Citi that teamwork is of paramount importance in how this company operates and the ability to effectively communicate, cooperate and integrate with a team are traits that would benefit any candidate not only in Citi but in any path they choose
