Advice

You don’t need to have a degree in computer science or an IT-related subject to get a graduate job in IT or technology. Whether you have studied an IT-related subject or not, you will need to be able to demonstrate how you have gone out of your way to pursue your enthusiasm for technology.

The type of role you choose will really depend on what your skills and interests are. You could find yourself working for almost any industry or sector (for example retail, defence, manufacturing, public sector, to name a few) as nearly all businesses and organisations rely on technology to maximise their performance.

The technical skills you need depend on the role you are applying for. Some graduate roles require knowledge of specific programming languages. As a graduate you won’t be expected to have a high level of expertise but you will need to show that you have been keen to develop your knowledge through activities in your own time.

Whatever role you apply to, ‘soft skills’ is what many IT graduate recruiters in recent years have wanted to see more evidence of. It’s all very well knowing how to develop an application or about the latest developments in the gaming industry, but without being able to communicate with your colleagues or build relationships with clients to find out their requirements, you won’t help the business flourish.
