It’s Spring already! We are well ahead in the second semester, the exams are coming up or are just finished and the weather is getting better. At the Career Services and University faculties we still have many activities coming up in the coming months for you to focus and think about your (future) career.

Career Month Law |April 24-May 19
The faculty of Law is devoting a whole month on their students’ career (and rightly so we think of course!). They have a ton of workshops on how to create a good cv, Linkedin profile and cover letter, but also webinars and seminars. Furthermore they will provide training on job interviews and assessments. While job interviews are a classic part of a solicitation more and more companies also use assessments to test whether a candidate is suitable for a function. This is your opportunity to participate in simulations of job interviews and assessments!
