Students seek out advice at Careers Fair

The 2019 Fitzwilliam Society Careers Fair was hailed an overwhelming success, with students queuing up to learn from the 38 alumni who dispensed advice and shared their experiences.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students dropped into the Dining Hall throughout the ninth edition of the annual event, held on Saturday, some targeting specific career areas and others seeking a more general discussion. 

Many waited for audiences with alumni in their chosen fields. Alumni represented a whole range of sectors, from academia, to engineering, journalism and financial services.

Development officer Millie Papworth, who organised the event, said: “The 2019 Careers Fair was a great success, and showed once again how strong and valuable the links between current and former Fitzwilliam students are. 

“Student feedback has been immensely positive, while alumni have commented on the enthusiasm of the young people they spoke to. 

“A huge thank you to everyone who took part, and we look forward to welcoming even more people next year!”

The University of Cambridge careers service was represented, and particularly pleased to see first-year undergraduates present and considering their options for summer internships.

We would like to thank the Fitzwilliam Society for its contribution to making the event happen.

The 10th Careers Fair will take place in 2020 and we plan to improve upon previous editions. We welcome contributions and suggestions.
