I quite often hear how communication is worse now as everybody is on their phones, not talking in person. I can take this as a point, but I don’t think it is necessarily worse, just different. Personally, I can talk to so many people who it would be hard to keep in contact with, yet it feels like I’m not missing anything because of instant messaging, social media and FaceTime.
I can agree that there are times where we should put devices down and speak face to face, yet there are also times where it is so useful to be able to be speaking to multiple people at once, it allows for collaboration and relationships that would be hard to be formed and maintained otherwise.
I think it is also key to remember that we haven’t always spoken the same language, our communication skills have developed, adding a device into the mix only highlights our ability to adapt and evolve. Being able to have a conversation in emojis mirrors the cave man drawing stories of animals.
I think communication is no worse, but better off given the tools that we now created!

If you’re looking for a graduate scheme in IT, then take a look and apply for the scheme that I’ve been on since September.
As part of the IT Architecture stream, I’ve been working with colleagues on designing new or making changes to existing IT systems. I’ve learnt so much within 3 months there already with the support of my line manager, mentor and sponsor, as well as, other members of my team and other members of the company.
As graduates we are also striving towards giving back, we are doing this through the company aligned charity Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
With the Costa sale, Whitbread brands such as Premier Inn and Beefeater, are going to be in an even stronger position for growth and this is where IT is key.
So take a look:

6 years ago I went to Brunel University for a Computing Taster Day, having not decided what I was going to do at uni yet or what uni to go to, but that day I decided both those things!
Crazy how time flies, I’ve finished my degree and am working in tech, if it wasn’t for events like that I don’t know where I’d be or what I would have done. That’s why putting effort back into promoting STEM has best interest for everybody!
My week summed up: Early mornings, awful drives home, free lunch and nice work campus walks 🤓
Now for the weekend, seeing my boyfriend and relaxing before doing it all again next week!
Many people ask what is it like to work in IT… what do I even do other than tell people to turn things off and on again? Well, as much as that is a common expression, that isn’t all it takes to work in IT!
So for the month of November, I am going to post up a photo and update each day, to share with you what it is like being a #WomaninTech and a graduate !
