National ICT Careers Conference - designed by students for students
BiG DAY IN OVERVIEW
The BiG Day In events are aimed at senior secondary school and university students interested in careers in ICT and technology. BiG Day In helps students obtain more information about ICT and technology careers, and hopefully helps them make a better informed decision about their future. BiG Day In events are held on University campuses around Australia (where possible) to give students an insight into what ‘university life’ might look like.
Students listen to 7-8 presentations throughout the day from organisations/speakers discussing subjects including career paths, career opportunities, the latest developments, the future of technology and much more. Presenters include WiseTech Global, Adobe, IBM, Microsoft, Westpac, Google, NAB, TechnologyOne, Avanade, Department of Human Services, CBA, Animal Logic, Apple, Defence Force Recruiting, CBA and a host of SME organisations to name just a few.
In the morning tea and lunch breaks, students visit the exhibitor stands to speak to exhibiting organisations, Universities and Colleges to learn about tertiary courses and degrees, work experience, internships, apprenticeships and to see demonstrations of some awesome technology.
In 2019, BiG Day In was privileged to have 182 speakers & 178 exhibitors nationally involved in delivering events in Wagga, Sydney (x 2), Sunshine Coast, Newcastle, Perth, Brisbane (x 2), Hobart, Canberra, Melbourne, Wangaratta & Adelaide. Click here to view one of our 2019 event highlights
