2017 Cam Connect Event Programme

Careers Service

February 2017 Welcome to Cam Connect , the annual careers event which aims to bring together students from all over the University to meet organisations with opportunities in our region. Cambridge's unique position as a centre of high-tech growth and innovation is world-renowned – the Cambridge Phenomenon. In many cases the University has spawned companies which are at the leading edge of technology and business. Some have quickly become familiar names and others are at the exciting start-up stage. At Cam Connect, you will find people from a range of companies, and all will be keen to talk to you about the opportunities they can offer. Take some time to think about what you are looking for and come and speak to a Careers Adviser at the event; the international student team will also be available to discuss post-graduation options. The event will also include a Start-Up Zone - an area to showcase early stage businesses looking to grow. Do speak to these organisations, all located in the Meade Room, they can tell you what it’s like working in a start-up - useful experience if you are interested in entrepreneurship yourself. In the SimPrints The Wand Company We hope that you will find the events useful, and that it will introduce you to some new career possibilities. Be sure to make use of the tick list handed out at the event; this shows those who are offering non-technical roles and internships, and details the degree disciplines each organisation wishes to attract. If you have access difficulties or are challenged by a noisy, busy environment, please identify yourself at the Careers Service stand and a member of staff will assist you in making the best of the event. You may also be interested in our other event (taking place in the same venue on the same day and times, but on the first floor) namely the Data Science Conversations ‘pop-up’ event . Participants are not restricted to being local-to-Cambridge. We hope you decide to visit both events, if so please be prepared to produce your university ID card at both to assist with our attendance statistics. Do look at our website, www.careers.cam.ac.uk , for lots of other ideas.
