Please also see Careers and Employability Services for Business.
Each year, industry partners and established alumni for a diverse range of companies with the school to host external lectures and attend careers events. The February 2013 Careers in Computing Fair, a joint venture between the Careers and Employability Service, the School of Computer Science and the computer science society, Compsoc, took place with great success. The event attracted over 160 students and 14 employers, with big names from major consultancies including Accenture and Deloitte, software development houses such as Amazon, and many more, including Boots and Imagination Technologies.
The fair gives students the opportunity to get the latest tips on successfully applying to graduate roles and internships, as well as discovering new opportunities with employers they may have never before considered.
Computer Science students at The University of Nottingham are offered a unique opportunity to gain valuable work-related skills as well as giving something back to the community through the IT Community Consultants Project.
