    Interview advice – helping you prepare

    • Have you got an interview? Practice for the real thing with a practice interview. A consultant will ask you the kind of questions you should expect from the employer.
    • No time for a practice 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.

    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

    This is available if you are unable to visit us in person because you are located away from the main Headington Campus on placement or have special circumstances such as a disability, which makes visiting Careers on the Headington campus difficult.

    To access the e-mail guidance service, e-mail your query to along with any supporting documents such as your CV/application and job criteria.

    Following initial contact with Careers, video/ telephone discussions may be offered as an alternative to e-mail guidance, as these are often the most effective way of resolving queries.

    E-mail guidance queries will normally be responded to within three working days.
