Associates’ Career Support Programme – for Students

Want to find out more about a career in one or more sectors? Want to hear about the interesting and varied career paths of Newnhamites who have walked in your shoes? Like to ask a fellow Newnhamite a burning question about working in their sector and get an honest answer? Have the chance to discuss your CV and get prepared with a mock interview? Come and join friendly and experienced Newnham Associates working in the sector you are interested in to find out more!

The Career Support Programme consists of a series of group video calls with an Associate from a professional sector. Students will have the chance to talk with the Associate about working in their sector and ask any questions they may have about starting and building a career in that sector. Below you will see the sign-up form and the listed video calls available. There is no limit to the amount of video calls that a student can attend, so if you are unsure which sector you are interested in you can attend multiple sector calls. To book your place on one or more of these calls, please complete the form below. You will then be contacted the day before the video call with the necessary information needed to join the call.
