1 Meet the Professionals School of Computer Science Thursday 21 April 2016 In partnership with The University of Manchester Alumni Association and Careers Service

2 Welcome Welcome to our Meet the Professionals event. It gives you the opportunity to talk to former students who studied similar subjects to you, and have gone on to be successful in their careers. You will meet alumni at different stages of their career who are able to offer advice and guidance and you will have the opportunity to ask them about their individual career paths. In groups of five or six, you will have 10 minutes with an alumnus before moving onto the next alumni and repeating the process. After everyone has met, we will break and you will have the opportunity to talk informally with our alumni. Here you can ask follow up questions, seek additional advice and exchange contact information. Timetable 17:00-17:15 Registration 17:15-17:35 Welcome talk 17:35-18:35 Speed networking 18:35-19:00 Informal networking 19:00 Close

3 Making the most of the event Before the event Research the alumni - In this guide you will find information about the alumni attending the event including their career timeline. What do you want to know? - Think about what you want to get out of the event, who you re particularly interested in meeting and what you need to ask about their individual career path. After the event Get LinkedIn - Now that you ve met some people working in the sector you re interested in, connect with them on LinkedIn and discover more about them and their employers. During the event Practise networking - Use the time at the end of the event to network and ask questions that you perhaps didn t have chance to ask earlier. Exchange contact details - Don t be afraid to ask for contact details, if there s someone you d like to stay in contact with, ask them for an address or phone number. Conversation starters Worried about networking? Networking is a great way to gain personal insights and start deciding on a career path. You will hear others experiences and make contact with people in the area you re interested in. Try to talk to as many people as possible from a variety of roles and consider talking to people from a different background to you to broaden your options. Prompts and possible questions to ask What is a typical day like in your role? How did you get started in this role? What kind of work experience would be helpful? What is the selection process like? What are the key skills needed for this role? What is the working environment like? What do you enjoy most about this role? What is the most challenging part of your role? Where did you look for work? Is there any other advice you could give someone interested in this career path?

4 Chris Seaton PhD Computer Science 2015 Research Manager Oracle Labs A portfolio of projects can prove that you are able to use technology and that you can deliver a useful project. This is much easier in computer science than many other fields and even small projects that show interest and understanding make a big difference to how I see candidates.

5 Sufian Al-Qasem BSc(Hons) Computer Science 2008 Software Developer Marshall Wace Focus all your energies on what you love and don t worry about financial rewards in the early stages.

8 David Glover BSc(Hons) Computing Science 2007 Technical Product Manager BBC Never be afraid to ask questions. It doesn t make you sound stupid to not know something, it makes you sound smart enough to understand what you don t know.
