RTS Futures NI held a highly successful careers day at Queen’s University Belfast as part of BBC Digital Cities Belfast Week in mid-November. 

The day featured a series of workshops and masterclasses run by industry professionals, and was attended by 300 people. 

David Monaghan and the BBC Make It team offered a “social media surgery”, while Games NI Chair Kitty Crawford ran a gaming workshop.

BBC NI talent manager Helen Thompson and Nicola McConville organised a “creative clinic”, which focused on how to stand out in CVs and interviews. The clinic was followed by a speed-dating event, with telly execs dispensing quick-fire advice.  

The day was rounded off with a panel discussion aimed at giving industry entrants the information to kick start their careers, which featured a speech from Zodiak Kids development executive Raymond Lau.
