The Trinity Hall community has a wealth of experience and knowledge, and it is of great benefit to our students and graduates if they can reach out to our alumni as a resource for careers advice and work experience. If you would be interested in supporting students in any of the following ways, please contact James Adamcheski-Halson, in the Alumni and Development Office, on firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
We have developed an online careers directory on www.THalumni.net where students and alumni can search to find Trinity Hall members working in certain careers, in certain companies or in certain locations. If you would be interested in signing up please follow the steps below; doing so means you agree to be contacted for careers advice by current students or recent graduates by private message.
How to sign up:
- Log in to THalumni.net (if you have never registered before select “new user sign up” and fill out your profile form)
- Click on “update my profile” on the left
- Select “business & careers”
- Update your current business details; you can select what information you are willing to make public to those searching the directory and what you would prefer to remain private.
- At the bottom of the page in the careers network section, please select “yes” if you would like to join the careers network. You can also select if your company may be able to offer work experience.
- Add any notes at the bottom in the careers notes section.
- Students are able to search the careers directory by industry and subject and contact other Trinity Hall members via a private message. You can limit the contact information that is visible to other users on your profile.
If you are willing to offer advice to students from other colleges, you can register on the University Careers Service online directory, Gradlink.
Searching the Careers Directory:
- To search the Careers Network please log in to THalumni.net and click "search the careers network" on the left hand side

We hold the annual Nicholson Careers Evening in Michaelmas Term, with thanks to the Nick Nicholson Fund. We may contact those who have signed up to the Careers Network to ask if they would be interested in being part of a careers panel - if you would be interested in being part of the panel please contact email@example.com. The Careers Evening usually takes place during the first week of November each year.
Bespoke events are also run subject to the needs of the student body. If you would like to offer your time for an event in a specific field, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have developed careers pages for students on the College intranet and have written a 'what it means to work in guide' to give students an insight into certain careers. We have asked alumni to write a few sentences about what their job entails on a day-to-day basis, the skills they think are needed for the role and common career progression in that field. If you would like to write somethign please contact email@example.com
Employers are increasingly looking for graduates to have relevant work experience. Students have benefited through connections with alumni who have offered internships and work placements to Trinity Hall students within their companies. The internships are advertised through our intranet pages and through student mailing lists. You can also tick the work experience checkbox on your profile on www.THalumni.net
Download the common best practice code for internships from Department for Business, Innovation & Skills.
We would be happy to discuss the possibility of recruitment events within College or sponsorship of student events/activities within College, for those wishing to raise their company’s profile. Alumni organising a recruitment event would be entitled to no venue hire charge and a 5% discount on food and drink.
