IT employers are quite conservative
Employers can be "quite conservative" when hiring graduates for IT jobs. This is the view of Peter Wood, member of the ISACA conference committee, who said that employers will largely go on candidates with well-established IT qualifications. People applying for IT security jobs, he explained, would need CISA and CISM and CISSP qualifications and possibly a Master of Science degree. However, he added that in the general IT world, "it still tends to be quite specialised".

Call for female engineers to enter competition
Young female engineers have been called to enter the annual Young Woman Engineer of the Year Award by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Each year the prize recognises a young woman who has established herself and exceeded expectations in her professional role, proving her abilities as a high achiever and team player. What's more, the award aims to seek out a new role model for other likeminded young women considering an engineering career, so the candidate must have the charisma and personality to inspire others, the IET says. As well as the prestigious title, the winner will be given a cheque for £1,000 and have the opportunity to attend high profile events and meet some inspirational people working in the industry.

UK can meet SET skills gap with more female recruits
The UK's skills gap in the science, engineering and technology (SET) sectors could be plugged if more young women are encouraged to pursue a career in these industries. This is according to a report by the Smith Institute, which suggests that businesses and government should work harder to attract more future female scientists. One of the ways of doing this, it claims, is to offer more family-friendly policies in order to stop female professionals from leaving the career. Indeed, 70 per cent of women with SET qualifications no longer work in these industries. The report also calls for the industry to work with schools to attract girls to continue SET subjects and show them that these careers can be exciting and rewarding.
