STEM careers and more through Gradcracker

Oxford's own vacancy board on CareerConnect is a rich source of vacancies and internship opportunities, including our summer and micro-internships which will be advertised throughout Hilary term. However, it pays to use a variety of resources to cast your search wider and find options that may not be advertised directly through the Careers Service.

For Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) students, one of the best sites we know is Gradcracker.

Gradcracker has more employers, work placements and graduate roles than any other careers website, with 297 leading employers offering 4,928 full-time openings at the time of writing. But there is a lot more to the site than just advertised opportunities, and the savvy job seeker can use it to develop ideas, deepen their research and make themselves visible to potential employers.

We'd suggest using Gradcracker to

  • Research sectors and the companies serving those sectors
  • Watch the live and recorded company webinars to hear from their graduate recruits and HR teams
  • Raise your profile by posting your CV, following companies you are interested in and signing up for email alerts.

Gradcracker also has some snappy advice about how to make the most of the site and be a great candidate when seeking to start your STEM careers. Try:
