Fitzwilliam Careers Fair

The Fitzwilliam Society Careers Fair took place on Saturday 14 November, online via Zoom. Interactive sessions with our alumni experts were well attended by both undergraduate and graduate students.

Should you wish to speak to alumni about careers, please contact the Development Office.

If you missed the event, or want a reminder, please take a few minutes to watch Fitzwilliam Society President Judith Bunting introduce the 2020 Careers Fair, and then watch alumnus John Lees (English 1977), a career strategist and author, provide Fitzwilliam students with advice for their CVs, interviews, and finding the right job.

Remember the University of Cambridge Careers Service is available to you year round, to provide general advice and guidance on everything from crafting the perfect CV to securing that interview.
