Helping IT jobseekers gain a slice of the Pi

An audience with Raspberry Pi co-creator Eben Upton will provide career advice to IT industry

Eben Upton, co-creator of the Raspberry Pi, will provide nine IT jobseekers with advice on how to get ahead in their careers, as part of an exclusive event being run by IT recruitment specialists CWJobs.co.uk.

Kicking off from today, IT jobseekers will be asked to submit their career questions for Eben through Twitterand the newly launched CWJobs Googlepage, for a chance to join the IT expert in a Google Hangout on 23rd November and have their questions answered.

As a champion for enhancing ICT education in schools - as exemplified by the creation of the Raspberry Pi device to teach primary school children the basics of programming - Eben hopes to provide additional support the generation of jobseekers now working in the industry.

Eben Upton, co-creator of the Raspberry Pi and co-founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, explains: “The Raspberry Pi Foundation is taking steps to invest in grass roots talent, for the benefit of the industry in the long run. However, those trying to enter or progress in the IT industry now still need support to ensure they can develop their career and gain the skills needed to deliver the achievements that will make the UK IT industry a world leader.”

Richard Nott, Website Director, CWJobs said: “IT is one of the fastest moving and most future-proof industries – which makes it a wise career move for candidates. Because of the industry’s agile nature however, jobseekers need to ensure they remain & lsquo;skilled-up’ and on top of latest trends if they are to remain competitive and help to drive the industry forward. We hope our event will provide jobseekers with a platform to gain advice from an expert within the industry who knows exactly what it takes to excel.”
