Upcoming Career Services Events

13 February 2017

Career Services has planned many events and activities for the next semester. Besides the workshops we have a seminar coming up and many employability experts will be visiting the I-Shop.

Open Hours with Job Agencies at the I-Shop

Members of our student pool are always present at the I-Shop to help you with questions about your career and to give advice on your motivation letter, CV and Linked-In page. Besides the student poolers we also host companies and job agencies to whom you can chat about your career prospects, as well as introduce you to their job offers. They are in the business of helping people to get jobs and know what they are talking about! Here’s an overview of the job agencies coming by:

Every 2nd Thursday of the Month: Adecco Group / Ajilon (13:00-18:00)
Every 3rd Thursday of the Month: Tempo Team (13:00-17:00)
Every 4th Thursday of the Month: Maandag (13:00-18:00)

Each job agency has a specialty in a certain work field. The Adecco Group/ Ajilon can give you information about job vacancies that are relevant for the higher-educated in every work field. Tempo Team can help you find the ideal side-job next to your studies. Maandag is an expert in jobs in the medical sector as well as education. They are all happy to chat with you about your career!
