The title of my talk was Computer Science Prospects – it was a talk, from the perspective of someone who has been in the industry for a few years now (ahem!), advising prospective graduates on useful skillsets to make themselves more desirable to employers.
I pointed out that with the increasing awareness of web standards, and the advantages they confer, it is vital for graduates to be intimately aware of them and to have demonstrable experience of development using the standards.
I then went on to point out as blogging is now, fast, becoming a mainstream means of corporate customer communication (witness the blogs of Randy Baseler – VP of Marketing for Boeing, General Motor’s Blog, and even the blog of Margot Wallstrom – vice president of the European Commission!), graduates with a knowledge of blogging technologies will be increasingly in demand.
Anyway the talk is available in Powerpoint format here.
