The Trinity Hall Careers Network provides a platform for alumni and students to connect with each other on a professional level, offering advice, internships, jobs and networking opportunities. 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.
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, companies or locations and make contact for informal advice and insights. To sign up, please follow the instructions in the FAQs section below.
The Nicholson Careers Evening
We hold the annual Nicholson Careers Evening in Michaelmas Term, usually the first week of November, with thanks to the Nick Nicholson Fund. If you are interested in being part of a careers panel please get in touch.
Bespoke Careers Events
Bespoke events are also run subject to the needs of the student body. Recently, we have run events on Accounting for Non-Accountants, Careers in Mental Health, Networking skills, Pitching and Presentation skills, the Telethon and Careers in Fundraising and ClickHall our Crowdfunding Platform.
If you would like to offer your time for an event in a specific field, please let us know.
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 particular 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.
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.
