Who we are

The University of Cambridge Careers Service helps you to prepare for your future. Whether you are an undergrad, masters student, PhD student, or a postdoc, our experienced and impartial team is here to support you at Cambridge and beyond.

We’ll work with you from day one to explore options, connect with employers, and navigate the complex job market – saving you time and maximising your employability prospects. Whether you have no idea what to do next, a few ideas or a definite plan, we offer plenty to help you take the next step: one-to-one guidance consultations; 14 major careers events each year; an extensive programme of briefings and skill sessions; coordinated employer presentations; a free book on CVs and Applications; and a database of graduate-level job vacancies in Handshake.

The Careers Service is part of Education and Student Outcomes, which is a department of Education Services.


Activate your Handshake account to make the most of the Careers Service - you can use it to explore career options, book an appointment, find jobs and internships, connect with employers, and enhance your network.
