Tech She Can inaugural Career Insight Day: A deep dive into tech careers.
In November 2022, Tech She Can led its inaugural Career Insight Day at our strategic partner Deutsche Bank. Aimed at inspiring students about pursuing a future career in technology and, ultimately diversifying the future pipeline of tech talent, these insight days offer a ‘behind-the-scenes’ experience into organisations for both young students, teachers and careers advisors.
Ten female students experienced a 'day in the life' at Deutsche Bank. They met a diverse range of inspirational role models, shadowed employees and took part in hands-on activities to understand how technology is used within the organisation and the routes into tech careers.
By the end of the day, the students had all broadened their understanding of the breadth and variety of job roles in technology and understood the different routes into these jobs. 100% of the students said that the day had changed their minds about their future education and career choices. Compared to 30% at the start of the day, 100% of the students said they were now considering doing an apprenticeship. Crucially, all students expanded their career vocabulary and ended the day knowing and understanding a range of tech job titles.
We’re now looking forward to inspiring more students to pursue careers in tech at our upcoming Career Insight Days.
