November 2017

Dear Student, Welcome to the Engineering Science and Technology Event , held over two days, with different organisations each day. Almost 130 organisations, many not visiting Cambridge at any other time this year, are attending this event to meet you. We extend an invitation to several hundred employers to attend. This event is one of many we host throughout the year, covering a very wide range of career interests see - http://www.careers.cam.ac.uk/notice/events.asp for the whole year, or our Study this programme to identify the firms you would particularly like to meet on both days. The vast majority have graduate vacancies starting next Autumn, and many have internships and other work experience opportunities next summer. You can search and save details of any vacancies (not just of the organisations listed in this programme) by visiting Vacancies & Opportunities on www.careers.cam.ac.uk; • Use this opportunity to raise topics that may not be covered on websites or in recruitment brochures and that are important to you, e.g. pay, work/life balance, the relevance or otherwise of your own background; • Make sure you meet as many of the organisations as you can – move to other firms you wish to meet and return later if there is a queue of students waiting to talk with a particular employer; • Take note of the people you meet – you can mention them as first-hand sources of information in your covering letter if you decide to apply; Careers Service take-away material is located on the landing on the second floor Quick Queries with a Careers Adviser on the 3 rd floor balcony– my colleagues and I can help answer most careers-related questions and can point you towards resources, information and events for any occupations not represented here today. International Student team also in attendance. . Do make full and regular use of us. We are happy to help you at any stage – whether you are very well-informed or have no clue whatsoever what you want to do. Come and visit the Careers Service, 6 Mill Lane and use the resources on our website: www.careers.cam.ac.uk diary for the Michaelmas Term via www.careers.cam.ac.uk To make the most of your visit, we recommend that you: •

Gordon Chesterman Director
