University of Oxford
In a few words
"The careers service have been SO helpful. From running regular talks and workshops, to being able to book 20 minute individual appointments to discuss anything you need. They publish their events weekly in an email newsletter and you either sign up online or just turn up. The careers fairs generally happen at the start of the first term (Michaelmas) and are as intimidating as you would expect. There are specific fairs for law, finance, consulting, teaching, maths etc which I found very helpful, though there are arguments that careers outside the obvious can be under-represented. The lack of obvious campus probably puts us at a disadvantage for a lot of recruitment strategies but the college alumni networks can be very effective, depending on college. Departments can also be very useful, even for careers not directly related to your subject."
