I'm still exploring my career options, but this event gave me a really valuable insight into the kinds of jobs and opportunities that are available in TEC. Additionally, it gave me a great confidence boost towards the application process for future placements and internships. Personally, the most valuable part of the event was the structured networking session where we had the chance to speak to successful women from partner companies.

Overall, Women in TEC was very informative and motivating as it highlighted the success of women and encouraged me to not be deterred by male-dominated careers.
