Career Skills Week for International Students 2018

Future-proof your career!

Are you an international student at EUR and do you want to get ready for your future? If the answer is yes, you should definitely join the second edition of the EUR Career Skills Week from 9 to 12 April 2018. The programme is packed with over 20 (mostly free) workshops and corresponding activities such as all days free cv checks, with the primary aim to boost your career readiness by training your personal and professional skills. The sessions are specifically designed for international Bachelor’s and Master’s students of all levels and disciplines and, of course, delivered in English.

The workshops address a variety of career related topics, including (but not limited to) Master choice, Time management, LinkedIn, application letter and CV, job interview, working in the Netherlands, and Starting your own business.

All workshops are open to all international students, but in order to help you choose which sessions are most relevant for you, the workshops are grouped in one of four different tracks:
