A team of experienced, impartial careers advisers at the university’s careers service help students from arrival to beyond graduation. An annual careers guide helps students make the most of the service.
Support includes one-to-one consultations, a free book on drafting CVs and job applications, mock interviews, workshops on topics from cover letters to interviews, plus numerous briefings on employers and sectors.
Students can also learn from the experiences of others, whether it’s student feedback from interviews with employers or assessment centres, or the career insights of Cambridge alumni.
With regular, major careers fairs (some subject-specific) and employer presentations, students get many opportunities to connect with companies. A database lists over 4,000 graduate-level job vacancies.
