Easter Closure and Careers Advice During the Vacation

Blogged by Corina Lacurezeanu on 14/03/2019.

Easter closure

The Careers Service will be closed for Easter from Thursday 18 April until Monday 22 April, reopening on Tuesday 23 April.

Careers advice during the vacation

Apart from on the days listed above, you can come in to have a 1:1 discussion with a Careers Adviser as normal; our advice appointments are available to book on CareerConnect. However, if you are not in Oxford during the vacation, you can still get careers advice.

  • If you would like to have a discussion by telephone or Skype while you are out of Oxford, you can book a Short Discussion appointment and email us to say you would like the appointment to be over the telephone, or via Skype.
  • The Careers Service also offers e-guidance during part of the vacation period. If you have a careers advice question, you can mail it to guidance@careers.ox.ac.uk. A Careers Adviser will normally reply to your email within two working days. We will run this service from Monday 18 March until Tuesday 16 April.

If you require any further clarification of our services, or have a specific enquiry, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us: reception@careers.ox.ac.uk or telephone 01865 274646.

Micro-internships are 2-5 day voluntary work experience placements facilitated by the University of Oxford. This new pilot programme is designed especially for research staff at grade 6 or above, who are currently on a fixed term contract at Oxford or who finished their fixed term contract in the past 12 months.

We have a wide variety of placements on offer in sectors including health, environment, photography & graphics, ethics, law, technology, computing and financial services. You’ll find attached a list of the opportunities and a full breakdown of the placements is available here.

How to apply

To apply you will need to register with CareerConnect if you have not done so already. Once you have found a micro-internship you wish to apply for, just follow the link alongside the opportunity and you will be directed to the relevant application page. For full details of the scheme visit the
Micro-Internships for Research Staff webpage.

And if you’d like further advice and assistance the Internship Office is providing Support Sessions offering feedback on CVs and personal statements which take place across the applications window on Monday – Friday. Book a 15-minute appointment via CareerConnect.

The deadline for making an application is 12pm midday on 1 April.

Podcast of Careers in Publishing talk available here

On 1 March, we enjoyed hearing some entertaining, candid views and handy tips on getting into publishing from four publishing professionals:

  • Carrie Plitt, literary agent at Felicity Bryan Associates
  • Naomi Crookston, a publisher at OUP and languages alumna
  • Kate McKellar, senior journals publishing manager at Wiley
  • Laura Murphy, senior marketing manager at Pearson and history alumna

If you missed the event, do catch up by listening to the podcast below and find out how:

  • writing a regular blog can help get you a job in publishing
  • there are all kinds of entry jobs in publishing, not just editorial. Think: sales, marketing, publicity rights
  • how networking can help, AKA ‘constantly showing your enthusiasm’.

NEW! Trainee accountants vlogging about work, study and professional development

Posted on behalf of ICAEW. Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on 07/03/2019.

Curious to learn more about the experiences of graduates in their first job who are working whilst also training for their professional exams? The ICAEW* has enlisted 5 vloggers, including 3 recent graduates, working in very different organisations to tell their stories and take you on their journey to becoming ACA registered Chartered Accountants. See their stories at ICAEW Vlog Stars:

  • Taran does far more than review accounts. Discover his story for first-hand advice on our graduate route to the ACA with Grant Thornton.
  • Bethany’s passion is to help people and support their financial situations, which is why working in government for the Ministry of Justice is her perfect role.
  • Michalis took his career to Cyprus with KPMG and is benefiting from the international recognition that comes with the ACA, a global qualification.

Students are welcome to post questions, which should be answered in subsequent vlogs.

For more information on this career direction, see Oxford’s Accountancy sector briefing.

* ICAEW is the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales, and is the accreditation body for the ACA professional qualifications studied by many graduate trainee accountants.
