With the new digital reality of the past year it has been hard to form international, professional connections and think about what your professional future looks like. Are you looking for an opportunity to orient yourself again in the international job market, and talk with a professional from your discipline? Then the Career Coffees will be exactly what you’re looking for.
Together with the UU Alumni Office, ESN Utrecht organises the Career Coffees. During the Career Coffees you will be able to have an inspiring conversation with an international UU alumnus who matches your academic background and career interests. The coffee talk will take place in February or March, so it will be easy to schedule next to your studies. Please note that this event is organised for international students only.
WHAT can you get out of this?
👉 Be informed about the way the international alumnus tackled the intercultural struggles in the Netherlands, and get tips about how to approach this problem yourself.
👉 Get inspired by their career path and their choices.
👉 Get practical tips about hunting and applying for a job in your field after your graduation.
👉 Have someone to talk to if you are unsure what you would like to do in the future.
HOW does it work?
1. The sign up form is CLOSED.
2. The UU Alumni Office will do its best to find you a matching UU alumnus within two weeks after the closure of the sign-up. (Please note that we can’t guarantee a perfect match for everyone and that you might be matched to an alumnus together with other participants).
3. You will receive an email obtaining the details of your match, and how you can contact them. It is up to you to take initiative in this, so make sure to do so.
4. Prepare for the talk, dress up appropriately, look professional and be on time. Make a coffee and join the conversation.
