Digdata’s online career panels help inspire young people who are curious about how the data industry works. Students will gain confidence by discovering how their transferable skills and knowledge can be applied to a role in data and learn about the varied entry pathways such as; industrial placements, apprenticeships and graduate schemes available each year.

Each panel is up to 60 minutes and includes a 15-minute Q&A. All panels will be hosted online using Microsoft Teams, recorded, and made available on our website.

    I enjoyed working with Digdata as I felt like it was a good opportunity to share my journey in my career in Data so far. I have had a unique approach in that I have had several jobs since graduation, slowly moving up the Data world and learning more as I move forward. I think that it is important for people to understand that finding the perfect job is not always a straight and narrow path. Knowing that people were able to listen to me talk about that but also ask questions about my experiences felt really good and I feel like if I was involved in something similar at a younger age it would have helped a lot.
