Yesterday (10/10/2012), myself, Jeff Ng and Ivana Stankovska made the short journey to The Whitworth Hall in Manchester for The Ethnic Diversity Fair. This is an event aimed at black and Asian students and graduates, in association with The Financial Times.
Recruitment fairs are extremely useful in providing a network between students and employers. Here are Web Applications UK, we recognise that valuing cultural diversity is a business imperative and we are always seeking to develop our diverse workforce. After the success in 2011, we decided that the 2012 Ethnic Diversity Fair was an opportunity not to be missed!
Around 25 employers attended this recruitment event and we were alongside household names such as Unilever, IBM, Google, Teach First and The Royal Navy! There was a real buzz around the room and we had the opportunity to interact with many students who were interested in starting their IT career at Web Applications UK!
On 12th – 13th October, a team of Webbies are heading down to Olympia London to attend The National Graduate Recruitment Exhibition. Another exciting event, we are hoping to interact with a range of students who are looking forward to starting their career as a software developer!
