  • Did you succeed in getting a job in the North?
  • Do you remember your job search?

The Young Alumni Network (YAN) of the UG is looking for alumni who would like to share their career experiences with UG-students. The participating UG-alumni will be offered a workhop  ‘how to give career advice’ on 26 March. Interested? Send an email to

The UG-CareerCafé is an informal get-together of students and young alumni: students who are interested in starting a career in Northern Netherlands and alumni who succeeded in getting a job in the North. The aim is to inform the students about the Northern labor market. To achieve this we ask a group of young UG-alumni to share their career experiences with the students.  The evening is a success if the students are inspired to take further steps in their career planning process.

The students are invited to ask questions, like:

  • How did you find your first job?
  • Did you plan to find a job in the Northern Netherlands?
  • What does your typical working day look like?
  • The relevance of extra-curricular activities in the job hunting process?
  • Did you had job interview and what questions were asked?

How did you experience the transition from study to work?
