Term Planner

From skills workshops to employer events and our seven Michaelmas term careers fairs, we have a wide range of exciting careers events lined up for you in Michaelmas term. You can learn CV writing techniques, improve your interview skills, get insights in a variety of employability sectors, and much more.

Applications are also open for our hackathon-inspired consultancy challenge, the Oxford Strategy Challenge.

Check out our Michaelmas term planner below for an overview of our upcoming events and click the links for more information and to book your place. And, don't forget to check the CareerConnect calendar regularly for additional Careers Service and recruiter events, and to browse internships, jobs, and graduate opportunities.

We are currently running all events online

While restrictions are expected to be eased over the coming months, there is still uncertainty over when large scale gatherings will be permitted to resume, meaning it is not possible to plan for in-person events at the current time.
