Twitter tag: #OxCareersFair

The Oxford Careers Fair is designed to present students with a range of graduate opportunities, across a variety of sectors of work and to highlight the diverse roles available. The Fair falls at the beginning of term, when final year undergraduate and post graduate students are highly motivated in planning their careers and looking for opportunities. First and second year students are also embarking on researching their future options. This fair is therefore an ideal opportunity for you both to raise awareness of your organisation and promote the diverse opportunities you may have. These could include graduate roles in areas such as logistics, supply chain, distribution, sales/sales management, financial management, corporate social responsibility, human resources, operations or communications. The Oxford Careers Fair has the broadest appeal of all our fairs, and so we are keen to attract a diverse range of employers ranging from sectors such as retail and manufacturing to transport and logistics, covering both national and local businesses, as well as professional organisations.

In 2014, 58 companies from a wide range of sectors exhibited, and 1250 students attended.
