'We are the managers of our own professional path'

The Office for International Education held its second annual Career Café on the evening of 6 February.

Nine alumni from various advanced master programmes presented to the current students their tips and experiences of how they found work in the Netherlands. Alumni from various years, such as newly graduated alumni and alumni still living and working in the Netherlands from as far back as 2013, gave the students useful and helpful information on how to get ahead of the job market in order to get a job in various companies based here.

The guest speakers were:

  • Ms. Capucine Page, The Hague Conference for Private International Law (ICR)
  • Mr. Matthew Brown, Houthoff (ICCL)
  • Ms. Ludovica del Vecchio, KidsRights (ICR)
  • Ms. Katharine Booth, Asser Insitute (EIHR)
  • Ms. Merve Duman, ABN AMRO (EIBL)
  • Ms. Ana Carolina de Carvalho Conde, APM Terminals Maasvlakte  (ICCL)
  • Mr. José Riva Leal, Philips (LDT)
  • Ms. Damla Toprak, Waste4ME (LDT)

Students who attended the Career Café were very happy with this event. They felt that they had learned a lot about the various ways in which to search for a job, get an interview, tips for during the interview process and specifically that 'we are the managers of our own professional path'.

Each guest speaker brought different ideas and viewpoints on how to go about the quest of finding a job. This made for a good mix of information and ideas and provided a substantive tool kit to the current students for them to use in their future quest for a job.
