Connecting students with disabilities/health conditions with recruiters at the Finance Fair

Posted on behalf of Annie Dutton. Blogged by Annie Dutton on 11/10/2018.

Interested in applying for internships or graduate opportunities in the Finance sector and want to know whether you should or shouldn’t tell a potential recruiter about your particular needs or understand how they may view your application? If yes, then please do come along to the bespoke session pre-Finance Fair session titled  ‘Engaging with organisations as a Disabled Student’ at 13.30pm on Tuesday, 16th October.

This session is  for any student who identifies themselves as having a disability, specific learning difficulty, or any mental or physical health condition, which they feel may impact on how recruiters or educational providers view them. At this session you’ll learn how to assess how disability-friendly an organisation is, how your circumstances may affect working with them, and how sharing (or not sharing) your circumstances may affect the recruitment process.

There will be lots of opportunity for you to ask questions in this confidential setting.  It may be of particular interest to you if you have had to ‘suspend their studies’ at some point, owing to health reasons, and want to know how your application may be viewed. It is open to all students whatever year of study.

If you attend this session you’ll also be able to access the fair before the official start time and meet with recruiters before it gets busy. Recruiters attending the fairs are aware that there will be some students keen to talk with them about their circumstances prior to the start of the fair away from the crowds.

If you are someone who meets the criteria for taking part, please do book your place on CareerConnect, or contact Careers Service Reception for more information on reception@careers.ox.ac.uk or 01865 274646.

Booking is essential. If you are aware of any particular access needs that you may have, please do  contact Careers Service Reception on 01865 274646 or email reception@careers.ox.ac.uk so that we can discuss what adjustments can be put in place, to ensure that you are able to access the Fair.  Read more on the Town Hall venue.
