Lent 2021 – Careers Service programme

University of Cambridge Careers Service Lent 2021 banner

The Careers Service is delighted to present its Lent Term programme 2021. This is looking to be a challenging term, but we are here to help you with a diverse range of virtual fairs, events, and skills sessions should you need them

You can make the most of the Careers Service this term by:

  1. Completing your Handshake Profile and Career Interests with as much detail as you can. This will enable our careers advisers to send you tailored updates and event notifications.
  2. Exploring the Career Centre to access our resources and appointments.
  3. Below is a flavour of what we’ve got coming up. Find our full range of fairs, sessions and panels via the Events section.

Don’t miss our careers fairs this term – they only take place once each academic year. They are all being run virtually, and you can discover more and register via Handshake.
