The Changing Face of Technology is an established careers event and has supported students for the past 4 years in gaining the confidence to apply and secure roles in the technology industry. We have worked with students and universities to fine tune our agenda to ensure it can make the most impact as possible.

Hosted by Atos’ & VMware’s gender and multicultural networks, this event is aimed at all students in the UK, from all disciplines, from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. This mentoring and careers workshop is designed to support you in kickstarting a professional career in the technology industry.

We don’t work alone as the event brings together a blend of professionals across Atos, VMware, BrightNetwork and various recruitment firms as we cover applying for graduate roles, building your personal brand, effective networking, opportunities available to you across the tech sector and the chance to put your networking skills into practice. Following the event, you can take part in a bespoke mentoring program. Through this program, you will gain a senior mentor in Atos or VMware who can support you as you embark upon this next step, providing support with interviews, assessment centers, applications, useful workplace skills and much more.
