Juicy job offers from top companies
It is no gainsaying that top employers want to employ Oxford graduates. 95% of Oxford graduates are employed or in further study within 6 months of graduating. Being the best university, Oxford graduates are employable enough to be able to take the time to find the job they want, rather than worrying about getting into employment as quickly as possible, even if the role isn’t ideal.
Third-year Oxford students get an array of careers guidance through the excellent university careers service, and also endless invitations to dinners and receptions from top employers hoping to woo them to apply to their companies. This is particularly the case for students in subjects like Law (where firms have the money to really show off to students) but applies to a certain extent regardless of the subject.
