Careers Fairs | The Careers Service Careers Fairs – Oxford University Careers Service
Oxford logo

Careers fairs provide you with the chance to meet employers face-to-face, to learn about current vacancies and opportunities available, and to market yourself to prospective employers. Most of our fairs have several talks you can attend as well, about the sector and opportunities within it – and often the opportunity to get advice on your CV from professionals. See each fair booklet for further details.

If you’re attending a fair, we recommend you read our information on how to prepare for a careers fair for useful tips.

If you are an employer interested in attending a careers fair, please find our employer’s page here.

China Job Fairs 2020

Blogged by Julia Hilton on 21/01/2020.

With more than 1,000 Chinese students currently studying at Oxford and a significant Chinese alumni group, the Oxford Careers Service is committed to supporting Chinese students and alumni with their job search. We know that navigating the job market in China alongside studying in the UK is extremely challenging. Whilst we see many Chinese students keen to stay to work in the UK, we are fully aware of the need to identify opportunities back in China too. For these reasons we are offering a series of China Careers events in 2020 exclusively for Chinese students, research staff and alumni to attend. The Careers Service is working closely with the Oxford University Chinese Students and Scholars Association and the Oxford University Chinese Society to raise awareness of these China focused events. We are grateful to both groups for their support and hard work.
