The Herd Digital Jobs Fair, Leeds

HERD flyerHerd are a technology focused recruitment agency who held their first digital jobs fair in the cake tin the First Direct Arena, which several members of data soc put a look-in to. It seemed quite busy around the halls, showing a good turn out from people both from Leeds University and Leeds Beckett, the latter of which sponsored the event. There were interesting talks on personal branding from Google and how to optimise the web presence when starting up one’s own business. Amongst others, companies featuring at the event included Call Credit, Sky, Plus Net, Unilver and William Hill. While data soc members found it interesting, it seemed quite heavily weighted towards the developers cross section of digital jobs, and so it would be nice next year if they could have a few more stands/companies interested in data scientists and analysts.
