Discover welcoming workplaces this April – OU Online TalentConnect

Posted on Fairs and events, Jobs, internships and work experience, Networking and social media, Volunteering

OU Online TalentConnect: Welcoming Workplaces will connect you with employers who want to build teams that reflect the unique strengths and different perspectives of every OU student and graduate.

We’re bringing together top employers, including CapGemini, British Red Cross and Auticon who appreciate how diverse, unique and talented OU students are. Everyone’s different, and employers value the skills you’ve gained from your study, your life and work experiences.

This careers fair is for you – no matter your subject, how you identify yourself, however old or young, whatever your experience, race, creed, gender, ability or disability.

The fair is live from 9 to 12 April. You’ll also be able to access stands and resources until 30 April.

Register for the fair or log in to become #OUCareerConfident.

What you can do at the fair

Attend online from anywhere at any time.

  • Visit employer exhibition stands online.
  • Watch presentations and videos from employers.
  • Download employers’ brochures and guides.
  • Ask our team careers questions.

Many employers will not be looking for candidates with specific degrees, so show off your transferable skills no matter what subject you’re studying.

Even if you haven’t completed your degree yet, you can still:

  • show your interest
  • present your skills
  • find what employers are looking for
  • learn how to work towards your dream job.
