How we can help

    One-to-one consultations

    You can speak to a consultant one-to-one about any career related issue. Appointments last 20 minutes and run Monday to Friday. See our Opening Hours for details.

    Interview advice – helping you prepare

    Have you got an interview?

    Practice for the real thing with a mock interview. A consultant will ask you the kind of questions you should expect from the employer.

    No time for a mock interview?

    We can give you advice on technique, questions and things to think about before an interview.

    Send us an email, or give us a call to book an appointment.

    Meet employers

    You can meet employers on campus that are advertising to Oxford Brookes students. See our calendar for what fairs are on.

    Employability training

    We run training sessions for groups on a range of topics, covering CVs, job searching, interview preparation and more. See our Training Programme for details.

    Thinking about postgraduate study?

    Postgraduate study can be a great investment in your future, but the decision needs careful consideration. Use our one-to-one drop-in service and talk it over with a Careers Consultant. To get started with your decision making, look at these helpful resources:

    Online guidance - if you are away from Oxford and unable to come into Careers

    Where you are unable to visit us in person because you are located away from the main Headington campus, or on placement, e-guidance support is available. Queries will normally be responded to within three working days.

    To access this advice, login to our online portal using your PIP details. Select the 'Ask us a question...' option under the Queries header.
