Maybe you find yourself clueless about what organisation or job would suit you best. Meeting people and talking about your aspirations is a good way to get an idea of what you want.
But also if your ambitions are clear, you need a network to help you go forward.
Whatever your current stage is, the EB Career Centre offers labour market information and connection opportunities to help you explore and expand your network.
Explore your future possibilities and build connections:
Attending and actively participate in events is the easiest way to learn about different branches, organisations and the people that work there.
Our EB study associations organise business events regularly. As an organising committee member you build practical skills, but also have close contact with recruiters and keynote speakers. This helps you expand your network with different companies, government agencies and municipalities.
A lot of companies organise Inhouse Days. These events are a great way to experience the work floor and meet current employees.
Visit (recruitment) website of companies that interest you to check if they have Inhouse Days. Can’t find anything? Give them a call and get in touch!
You don’t need a first-rate network to launch your career journey. Just start with who you know and keep building from there.
When you start networking, you will soon notice that people love to talk about what they do and why. You’ll get more help than you might have expected.
Our Career Coaches know the Dutch market and can help you get more insight in the industries you prefer. They can also help you get in touch with different companies. Meetings are between 15 and 30 minutes.
