It was great to give back to the community today by representing Whitbread at Tring’s School Career Fair!
It is good to share your career path for others to learn from, both the mistakes and successes. It is also great to know that grades aren’t everything, extra curricular and passion goes a long way!
If you’re looking for a graduate scheme in IT, then take a look and apply for the scheme that I’ve been on since September.
As part of the IT Architecture stream, I’ve been working with colleagues on designing new or making changes to existing IT systems. I’ve learnt so much within 3 months there already with the support of my line manager, mentor and sponsor, as well as, other members of my team and other members of the company.
As graduates we are also striving towards giving back, we are doing this through the company aligned charity Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
With the Costa sale, Whitbread brands such as Premier Inn and Beefeater, are going to be in an even stronger position for growth and this is where IT is key.

It’s with great pleasure (and amazement) that I say I have over 1500+ followers over 4 social media platforms, but I’d love to grow this even further, so that IT Girl can try to help one more girl out there into STEM and to grow a bigger network at the same time. So please share http://www.TashaITGirl.com on any platform you see fit, or if you have any ideas it would be great to collaborate with 🤓 Thank you x
Great evening at the WCIT Journeyman Dinner, it’s great that a charitable and well established livery company and the men and women who make it so great, care so much about mentoring the younger members! Very appreciated and I look forward to giving back how I can too!
If you’re interested in learning more about the WCIT, then feel free to get in contact or check out their website 🤓
On Friday night I met up for dinner with a colleague from my placement year at GSK, she is such a cool and kick ass lady and definitely helped to teach me how to handle yourself when managing men and how to stand up for yourself in the workplace 💪
Find yourself a Kerry to help show you the way!
Love this idea of bringing STEM to all corners of youngsters, great way to get girls engaged and interested through a fun way of a rewarding badge!

Developing children’s interest in Stem subjects and increasing apprenticeships is vital for addressing the UK’s “alarming” cybersecurity skills gap, a major new report has said.
Take a look:
“Despite progress towards greater equality in STEM, female science communicators on YouTube continue to face bias and social discrimination, impacting their popularity and reception among viewers,” concluded the researchers.

Take a look at this article written by Beata Green, on ways of finding talented female coders even with a shortage of women coming out of computer science degrees.
There is a marked gap between the number of male and female students enrolled in computer science in schools. That means very few women are entering into a computing career. Moreover, this is a concern, because the lack of women in information systems careers can actually slow down the economy. Not only that, but the risk trickles down to companies who are missing out on the more diverse teams that studies say will make their businesses more successful.
