Oxford University Careers Service

The Careers Service is located at 56 Banbury Road and provide a variety of information covering vacation work and permanent employment. Although their talks on jobs in IT seem to be aimed at people who have no experience with computers, it is worth a visit if you collect an 'aptitude test' which is an all-round exam that many top employers now require of all applicants. (Who said that changing GCSE and A-level standards didn't render them useless as a gauge of academic ability!)
