Career perspectives (completed)

The aim of the working group ‘Career Perspectives’ is to create more insight into career opportunities for young professionals. Besides this, YoungRUG aims to have a key role in playing a role in the inter-faculty exchange of career opportunities.

In this project, we formulated several questions for young professionals in order to get more information about their wishes, needs and challenges within the organization and their expectations for career pathways. These questions concern the role of the organization in providing personal development possibilities and career related activities for young professionals.

After analyzing the data from the focus group discussions with young professionals we decided to look into the manager’s point of view on career perspectives for young professionals within the UG . To do so we held several interviews with managers of (young) professionals in the UG. The final report is in preparation and it will be shared with all relevant stockholders.


We organized online focus groups discussing career perspectives for young support staff. We gathered valuable input and decided to enrich the contributions with the perspectives of UG managers and the Union. Consequently, interviews with managers and the Union representative were conducted. We have summarized these results in a report. If you would like to receive this report, please send us an email (
