On Thursday 13 November, PDMS will be hosting a stand at the Isle of Man Employment and Skills 2014 careers fair. The event, organised by the Department of Economic Development and the Department of Education and Children is the largest local event highlighting career and training opportunities for Isle of Man residents. Part of the Government's 'Vision 2020' strategy, the event is aimed at matching shortages of sector specific employment skills with the Isle of Man's workforce.
PDMS be representing their software development business at the event. They will also be showcasing their www.employed.im portal - the Isle of Man's one stop careers resource and jobs portal for students, job seekers, job changers, training providers and employers. The exhibition will mark the one year anniversary of employed.im, which was officially launched at last year's Employment and Skills event, following its rebrand from Manx Graduates.
Commenting on the event, PDMS' HR Manager, Lauren Stewart said, "We're delighted to be attending this year's Employment and Skills event again. It's the perfect occasion for anyone seeking new opportunities and career options to come and speak to us about utilising employed.im in their career and job search. Individuals can also come and talk to us to find out what it's like to work for a successful software development company. We'll be handing out free fact sheets on IT related career choices such as becoming a web developer, systems analyst, IT project manager and web designer. When people think about working in the software industry, they often don't realise the breadth of different career options that are available, nor do they realise that people with skills and experience in the software development and IT industry are in very high demand on the Island".
The event is open from 9am until 6pm at the Villa Marina and is free to attend. You can tweet PDMS @PDMS to let them know you'll see them there!
