Your Help

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

Life Update

I am in the very fortunate position to announce that as of Friday I have a graduate role. I attended an assessment centre (tips for these shall be featured soon) at Whitbread, which is the parent company for Costa, Premier Inn, Beefeater & others.

It was an intense day consisting of a group task, networking lunch, case study and 2-1 interview. I wasn’t sure what to expect as although this is a FTSE100 company I hadn’t heard of the parent company name, but it was a good day and I met such lovely people and it was such a great atmosphere… ticked all the boxes!

So the next morning I get a phone call from Whitbread with positive feedback and an opportunity to go in again that day to speak with an IT Architect because they think I’d be capable of being placed in this area instead of the streams they currently were offering, which sounded great. So I got my business gear out once again, drove to Whitbread and met with the IT Architect who was very welcoming and engaging and he told me about the role and responsibilities. It sounded like what I’d always wanted to do but never knew the name of it. After our meeting I got a call straight back to say that they’d love me on board and I was astounded… it all feels very surreal still but I’m pleased to say that in September 2018 I will be starting as a grad IT Architect at Whitbread!

Now to crack on with my dissertation 💪
