What can you do with a computer science degree? Hear about Jessica's experience of graduating in astrophysics and making the move into computer coding in the world of IT.
In our recent blog ‘Are Universities teaching the right digital skills?’ we talked about how in 2014 81% of hiring managers said it was “somewhat difficult” to fill open positions due to lack of skills, and 61% said they had hired a person who was not qualified for the role. Another alarming fact is that 13% of computer graduates are still unemployed six months after leaving University.
On the other hand, according to a recent government report, the UK needs another 745,000 workers with digital skills by 2017, which means there’s certainly a high demand for the right candidates.
So, if you’re an IT graduate how do you give yourself the best chance of making the successful move from university to work?
