Description

Starting a new career is never easy!

Finding your perfect place in the tech industry can be a challenging and intimidating task for anyone; whether you’re a fresh grad, someone who’s looking for a career change, or perhaps wanting to go freelance.

By popular demand, we’re bringing back our sell-out ‘Cracking the Tech Career’ event.

You’ll hear from a diverse array of speakers and panelists who’ll share their tips on how to get your dream gig; from nailing the technical interview, to salary negotiation, and finding the right culture for you!

There’ll also be time on the night for you to receive portfolio/CV advice from our experts (so make sure you bring along a copy of your CV!), and to have a professional headshot taken to pimp your LinkedIn profile.



Introducing our incredible line-up for the evening!
