Advertise in the Oxford Guide to Careers

For the last 9 years, the Oxford University Careers Service has written and produced an annual Oxford Guide to Careers for students. By keeping this entirely in house we have created a distinctive and successful platform for our external partners to promote their organisations and careers directly to Oxford students.

Created in house by the Oxford University Careers Service, the Oxford Guide to Careers delivers:

  • The lowdown on industry sectors as diverse as advertising and AI.
  • Information from over 50 employers looking to recruit Oxford students.
  • Profiles from alumni in sectors from academia to tech.
  • CV and cover letter templates and tips.
  • Advice on cringe-free networking.
  • Interview strategies.

We welcome bookings from recruiters who wish to advertise:

  • graduate schemes
  • internship schemes or work experience
  • their organisation as a great place to work, even if there are no regular opportunities.

All advertising is organised by industry sector, and adverts are listed alphabetically within each sector as far as possible. Many organisations of course operate in more than one sector, and you can choose to advertise in additional sectors as appropriate, with discounts available for second and subsequent entries.

Types of advertising

You can choose to have a display advert or a listing in the Guide, and many organisations choose to have both.

Adverts can be a full, half or quarter page and are created by your marketing or design team. You can include whatever content you choose, including images and graphics alongside logos and text.

Listings are all a quarter page, and consist of your logo and approximately 200 words of text under specified headings. These are all formatted identically by our designers.
