Monthly news

You can find the latest careers events, news, resources and opportunities in the monthly Careers Express newsletter. As a current OU student or recent alumni, Careers Express is emailed to you each month. If you're not receiving it, check your junk mail and update your Communication settings in OpportunityHub.

Live careers events

You can sign up for live workshops, webinars, forums and employer events on OpportunityHub events. You can also manage your bookings, receive notifications and view a record of events you’ve attended. If you’ve not accessed OpportunityHub before, see Help with signing into OU systems.

Careers media resources

Our recorded webinars, videos, audio recordings, forums and resource documents cover many different topics to help you discover a range of career areas, explore work and volunteer opportunities, succeed in the recruitment process and know where to get support. Some recorded live and some pre-recorded, our sessions are delivered by our team of Careers Consultants and often included guests such as employers, academics and OU alumni, who share their experience and expertise. You can also access careers forums for up to a year after being live so you can browse questions and answers from students, guests and Careers Consultants.

If you're having problems accessing the webinars and forums site or using Adobe Connect, contact the Computing Helpdesk.
