THANK YOU to all who joined us at the three-day Leavers’ Fair 2024 for our newest alumni!

We loved meeting you all and hope you enjoyed the workshops, crafting, photo booth and finding out about the benefits and resources available to you as Oxford alumni.

If you missed the fair, please look out for another email from us in the next couple of weeks letting you know how to claim your My Oxford Card 🤩



Q: What do I have to show to pick up the My Oxford Card? 
A: Please bring your Bod card with you when you come to collect your card. If you don't have your Bod card, please just have another form of ID available. 

Q: What if I can’t make it to the Leavers’ Fair? 
A: The Leavers’ Fair is the main opportunity to get hold of your My Oxford Card before you leave Oxford and to also find out about the amazing resources available to alumni. However, if you can’t make it, we will be in touch later in the summer to let you know how you can order a card. 

Q: What if I order a My Oxford Card but then don’t make it to the Leavers’ Fair? 
A: My Oxford Cards can only be picked up by the named person on the card. If you order a card and then don’t make it to the Fair, there will be a further opportunity to collect it or have it posted to you. More details will be shared after the Leavers’ Fair.  

Q: If I don’t come to the Fair, where can I find out more about resources for new alumni? 
A: Our new alumni microsite has lots of information about the resources you can continue to access once you leave Oxford.

Career workshops:

Join one of the workshops hosted by Dr Mike Moss from the Careers Service. Leavers are welcome to register in advance via CareerConnect.

1-2pm: Kickstart your career
Planning life or a career can be overwhelming. There are so many opportunities it is difficult to know where to start. Mike has developed a simple approach to navigating this complexity. It involves being a little more open minded than feels intuitive, setting aside biases, suspending judgment and researching a diverse range of options in a structured way with an open mind. Mike will be ready to answer all of your questions as you prepare to kickstart your career.

Register in advance.

2-3pm: Improve your applications, CV and cover letter
As part of his Masterclass, Mike has developed a range of counter-intuitive tips and tricks to improve your job applications, CV and cover letter. Typically, in the month before attending the Masterclass graduates apply for about ten jobs to get one interview. In the month after attending the Masterclass, graduates report getting an interview more than 50% of the time. The Masterclass will be repeated on Saturday 15 June at 10am.

Register in advance.

3-4pm: How to prepare for interviews
Mike will outline how to prepare for an interview, how to research the organisation and sector more broadly and deeply than feels intuitive and how to prepare responses to common interview questions. He will answer all of your questions about interviews and assessment days.

Register in advance.
