The UWS Working in the Computing and Creative Technologies Conference is a one-day event on Wednesday, 16th March, 2016 which runs from 0920-1640 at the University of the West of Scotland’s Paisley campus. WICCT is aimed at Computing and Creative Technology students, graduates and companies.

WICCT’s central themes are employment and employability in the computing and creative industries. Students get an insight into getting started in your careers, find out what employers are looking for and how to get hired.  Graduates get advice and top tips on progressing up the ladder to the next stage of your careers. Companies connect with students and graduates, talent spot and, if you are in the market to hire, recruit.
