OIC Industry Virtual Careers Day

We are delighted to announce that the college will be hosting Oxford International College’s Industry Virtual Careers Day on Saturday 30th January. This day will enable our students to learn from and network with exceptional professionals from a range of industry, including finance, law, public health and psychology. Some of our special guests are just beginning their professional journeys while others have 30+ years experience. We are particularly excited to have a CEO of a San Francisco Law firm, Inspire Business Law Group, Edward “Ed” Grenville also in attendance for our last session, 4pm-4:45pm (as it will be 8am in the Californian Bay Area!). In addition to this, students will be provided with insights into how you can gain access to internships and graduate schemes, how to build your CV and to tailor your covering letters. The event will run from 11am til 5pm, and students are welcome to attend all sessions regardless of their core subjects. Attendance is mandatory for certain subjects at certain times as these sessions will be tailored towards particular career groups. Below is a schedule for the day.
