05 November 2015
On Thursday 12 November, PDMS will be exhibiting at the Employment & Skills 2015 at the Villa Marina to promote IT Careers and employed.im.
The annual careers fair, which is jointly hosted by the Department of Economic Development (DED) and the Department of Education and Children (DEC), is the largest local event aimed at helping people at all stages of their careers to find out about jobs and career opportunities in the Isle of Man.
PDMS will be representing their software development business at the event to inform anyone interested about IT related careers such as becoming a web developer, systems analyst, IT project manager and web designer. They will also be providing demonstrations and information about the www.employed.im portal - the Isle of Man's one stop careers resource and jobs portal for students, job seekers, job changers, training providers and employers.
"We're excited to be exhibiting this year's Employment and Skills event again. It's a great occasion for anyone who is seeking more information about career options and new opportunities. There are a huge scope of career options that people often don't realise are in the IT and software industry." Chris Gledhill, Managing Director, comments, "This career fair is a chance for individuals to come and speak to the PDMS team about these possibilities it the IT Sector, including getting first hand experiences of their roles."
PDMS with employed.im are also delighted to announce that they are now co-ordinating the Isle of Man School's Work Experience Programme. Newly appointed Work Experience Co-Ordinator, Lorna Trevethan, will also be attending the event to discuss opportunities on the Island for work placements with schools.
Lorna explains, "Offering work experience placements is a fantastic way of giving young adults the chance to learn about the industries on the island and get hands-on experience. The careers fair allows organisations to reach out to young adults who are starting out on their career paths. Anyone is welcome to come and chat to us about utilising employed.im in their career and job search and how you can open yourself to opportunities available locally."
This is an open event and is free to attend. Drop by anytime between 9am and 6pm on Thursday 12th November to find out more about your future career possibilities.
