FSE Career Services: Cooperate on job market preparation

Career Services at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) provides student services in the area of career orientation, employability skills and future career preparation. Below, you find opportunities to collaborate with the FSE on career-related topics.

Post a job vacancy

The vacancy database is an interesting platform to gain access to a large group of highly educated students, by means of posting your job vacancy. To post a job vacancy in the vacancy database, please fill in the online employer form if you are new to posting via this system. Subsequently, please fill in the vacancy form. In case you want to post additional vacancies, pay attention that for every additional new vacancy a new vacancy form has to be filled in. Afterwards, the team of Career Services will post the job(s) in the vacancy database, for the students to see and access.

Offer an internship

Internship projects are part of many Master programmes at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE). Please refer to this overview for more information about the length and type of different internship projects at the Faculty. Students have to find an internship project themselves, and are allowed to list it on their diploma as long as a project fits the requirements of the academic programme. If you wish to offer internship projects to students, you may use the same procedure as posting a job vacancy to the University of Groningen (UG) vacancy database:

Please fill in the online employer form if you are new to posting via this system. Subsequently, please fill in the internship form. In case you want to post additional vacancies, pay attention that for every additional new internship a new form has to be filled in.

Students can also choose to complete extracurricular internships, outside of the study programme. However, because this tends to lead to study delay, most students will apply for internship projects that fit the requirements of their academic programme. To receive an optimum number of applications, we therefore advise to take a look at the internship requirements stipulated in this overview and adjust the internship project(s) you advertise via our vacancy database accordingly. If you have questions about the requirements, or wish to get in contact with the study programmes directly, please refer to the project coordinators in the overview.

Participate in the Career Day and Beta Business Days

Every year, the FSE Career Day and the Beta Business Days are organized to prepare students for their future career. The Career Day is organized by the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) in November. The Career Day focuses on informing students about job possibilities and to enhance the career skills of students by means of workshops. Also, the Career Day provides a first acquaintance for students with companies and organizations, via an information market.

The Beta Business Days are organized annually in March, by a foundation of students who study at the FSE. The Beta Business Days offer a platform where students and companies can connect and where students can apply on the spot for the vacancies companies offer.

Companies are welcome to (re)present themselves at these events and connect with students. In case you are interested in participating, please leave your contact information via this online form.

Give a guest lecture or presentation

The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) aims to connect academic education with the trends and activities in industry. Therefore, we invite CEOs, engineers, corporate scientists and other interested parties with a job in science and engineering to give a presentation or guest lecture as part of our courses. If you are interested in helping our education in this way, or wish to discuss a different way to make a contribution to education, please contact us via the information indicated in the final paragraph of this webpage.

Career services for students

In addition to the activities mentioned, there are additional services FSE Career Services provides to students, where collaboration with industry may be less straightforward. These services include a Career Services Desk where we check student CVs, motivation letters and LinkedIn-pages once a week, job coaching offered by professional trainers and career workshops provided by job trainers on a variety of topics ranging from ‘How to write your CV’ until ‘Self-reflection on your career’.

If you still wish to contribute to these activities and/or have suggestions on how to improve our services, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can find our contact information in the next paragraph.
