Oxford's 'Careers in Computing' fair coming soon
Posted: 17th January 2012
The second dedicated ‘Careers in Computing’ event will take place on Monday 30th January, 3pm - 6pm, 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 the Department of Computer Science at Oxford University. 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 (taught and research) Oxford University and Brookes University students from all disciplines. It will give students the opportunity to discuss graduate opportunities plus internships, 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.
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 35+ companies exhibiting will include Google, IBM, Bank of America, Deloitte, Oracle, Cisco, NetCraft, Double Negative Visual Effects, Red Gate Software, Bloomberg, Metaswitch, Ensoft, Oxford Computer Consultants, SunGard, Vodaphone and Fujitsu.
The event will take the form of a networking fair which will run from 3.00pm - 6.00pm in the Department of Computer Science, Parks Road, Oxford. (Please use the No 7 Keble Road entrance. Map and directions here.)
