Pre-assignment in English

Technology is used to make the world a better place. The ICT and technology industries offer a variety of employment opportunities, and you can enter the industry along different paths. A variety of skills and competencies are needed in the industry.

In this pre-assignment, we challenge you to think with us the question “what kind of skills are needed in the field of technology and what study and career choices can be made to get a job there?” The aim of the pre-assignment is to introduce you to the world of technology and reflect on different skills and paths towards working with technology.
The task is to answer a short questionnaire where you can share your thoughts on the field of technology as a possible future job, the skills needed there and the different paths.

We are interested to hear how you understand the field of technology, the skills needed there and the different career paths. We want to highlight the different opportunities that the industry offers. Nokia wants to make the diverse job opportunities in technology known to people of all ages.
