Careers in IT / Computing
The ICT department organised a ‘Bring It On’ talk for all Year 13 students. Guest Speaker Mr Enda McKenna from e-skills UK spoke to the pupils about the exciting career opportunities in IT. He mentioned global companies such as Google, Apple, IBM, Sony who have a presence in Ireland and are recruiting IT graduates on an ongoing basis.
Enda informed students that over the next 5 years, 10,000 new jobs will be available in the IT industry in N.I. and he encouraged students to consider a career in programming, software development, App development, game development, software testing, IT support and web development.
Enda also encouraged students to learn how to code and avail of the many free online resources e.g. http://bringitonni.info/coding/. These activities can really help students to enhance their UCAS personal statements.
