Computer Science Careers Fair Announced
Posted: 9th November 2010
The first dedicated ‘Careers in Computing’ event will take place on Thursday, 10 February 2011, giving companies offering graduate employment opportunities the chance to talk directly with Oxford students.
The ‘Careers in Computing’ event is a joint initiative between the Careers Service and OUCL. It aims to connect employers to Oxford students looking for a career that involves the use of Computer Science.
The event will be open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students (taught and research) from all disciplines, and will give students the opportunity to discuss graduate opportunities with both large blue chip companies, and smaller local organisations. It will also give students the opportunity to gain a better understanding of what companies have to offer, and in turn what companies are looking for in their graduate intake.
It is anticipated that there will be a broad range of organisations from those dealing in computer systems and hardware, to software houses, consultancies, research institutes and professional services organisations from a variety of sectors.
The event will take the form of a networking fair which will run from 3.00pm - 6.00pm in the Computing Laboratory, Parks Road, Oxford. There will also be a selection of talks covering topics such as internships, work experience, graduate traineeships, continuing professional development and membership of industry bodies.
All stand places for this year have been taken, but please contact Helen Hill of the University Careers Service, via firstname.lastname@example.org to recieve information about future fairs when available.
