ITP's aim is to help those who work in tech to get ahead. To this end we are piloting a workshop open to any ITP member wanting to break into the Wellington job market, to return to work after a career break, or simply seeking to further their career in the IT industry.

Please note that this free event/workshop is open to ITP members only. Join ITP now and you'll be able to register straight away.

The workshop is structured into three 2-hour long sessions during one week:

  • Tuesday, October 9th
  • Wednesday, October 10th
  • Thursday, October 11th

Each session will begin promptly at 4.30pm and finish by 6.30pm. Attendees attend all 3 sessions, so just register for this one event to register for all 3 evenings.
