Offer Skills Sessions
In the Michaelmas (autumn) and Hilary (winter) terms the Careers Service invites recruiters to volunteer to run Employer Led Skills Sessions for our students.
You can cover areas such as:
- CVs and cover letters
- Tackling application forms
- Preparing for the fairs
- Improving your interview technique
- Online test practice
- Case study practice
- Assessment centre practice
These sessions provide students with vital support in the application process. They place real value on hearing directly from employers who can use examples to demonstrate what they look for, what makes a candidate stand out, and how students can make a competitive application.
Delivering a skills session is another way to raise brand awareness with Oxford students, particularly with those who may not have considered a particular sector – or your company within it – but who are keen to gain advice on topics such as CVs and improving interview technique.
We know employers have a wealth of experience constructing and delivering similar skills sessions in a variety of universities. Rather than a definitive guide, this page gives key points relating to Oxford.
