External Lift to Careers Service Breakdown

Blogged by Annie Dutton on 21/11/2018.

The Careers Service is sad to announce that the external lift to access the Careers Service building has broken down. We are currently waiting for it to be repaired and hope that it will be fully functioning by  1 December.

If you are planning to attend any of the events held at the Careers Service or wish to see a Careers Adviser and you have mobility needs, such as using a wheelchair, then please contact our Reception Team on reception@careers.ox.ac.uk or telephone 01865 274646 so that we can identify other ways that you can access our services, resources and events whilst the lift is being repaired.

We apologise for any disruption to accessing our services and resources that this has created.

This service, provided by JobTestPrep, can be used to better understand and practice for a variety of commonly used tests, including:

  • numerical or verbal reasoning tests, spatial reasoning and pattern recognition ability tests;
  • Situational Judgement Tests;
  • e-tray exercises; or
  • understand and practice for the Watson Glaser test [used by nearly all law firms]; and
  • personality tests.

Use this site in parallel with our core guidance and advice in our briefing on Psychometric Tests.

You must apply to the Careers Service* for an Access Code by signing-in to your Oxford CareerConnect account and submitting a query via the Queries tab using the title: Request for JobTestPrep Access Code. You will have 12 months free access from the first time you use the code to login.

Our Psychometric Tests briefing highlights a variety of other practice resources, including a free resource available to everyone using an Oxford University email address. To access this bank of practice tests simply register using an email address that ends .ox.ac.uk on the Oxford University login page for Practice Aptitude Tests

*Please note: we will not be able to issue any Access Codes between Christmas Eve and 2 January 2019 as we will be closed in line with the wider University.
