Careers Services Law is available for personal advice and supervision regarding internships and jobs. To this effect you can schedule a career planning meeting. They also organise workshops and information sessions which can help you along in your career after your studies. They also offer you the opportunity to search for a mentor who can help you in case of career questions.
After all, your career does not only start áfter graduation, but already during your programme. This website will provide you with diverse information about your career perspectives and the way to get there. The Career Planner offers support in this. In addition, you can find information about internships, studying abroad, applying law in practice, competences and career events organised by the study associations.
All these possibilities offer you a chance to already start developing your competences and thus distinguish yourself on the labour market later.
In de Student Portal in the third tab Career you find a database CareerConNEXT in which you can see all internships and jobs offered to our university and faculty. You also find the full offer of career events and workshops to improve your job hunting skills. You can search in the system by using the student login and using the advanced search option to select your preferences.
You can find a database called Going Global in CareerConNEXT. This database holds internships and jobs in several countries, including the Netherlands. It also provides you with guidelines on how to apply in several countries.
Regarding your career orientation and preparation to entering the labour market, you can use the mentor system available at the Faculty of Law. Our mentors are alumni who are willing to spend time to help you as a student with your career questions and choices and make ambitions and aims more concrete. They can use their work experience and knowledge of the labour market to help you along or provide you with information. They know first-hand which competences are necessary to perform their job and can give tips on which skills you could/should develop during and next to you programme. Possibly, they can also open their network for you.
The database CareerConNEXT shows which alumni are willing to be mentors, what their current job position is and what kind of support they can and are willing to offer. You can choose a mentor that suits your needs with regard to your career. You can find the overview of mentors by logging in to the system.
