Do you know how to find job possibilities or organisations that match your wishes? Do you know how employers find employees and how to increase your chances of finding a job?
During this workshop you will explore the job market with your own preferences, drives and qualities in mind. In order to do this, you first need to form a clear idea of your criteria for a job. If you´re not quite at that point yet, take the workshop Self-analysis for career development first.
In the workshop Exploring the job market & networking we will show you how to use LinkedIn to map out the job market and how to develop useful contacts in it. You will also learn how organisations select their employees and how you can play into this in a clever way. In addition, we will look at finding job openings and using your own network to do so. Finally, you will be trained to present yourself confidently to employers by developing a professional pitch.
After taking this workshop you will have gained more insight into approaching future employers and you will be more aware of the potential usefulness of your own network.

Our no-show policy
We are happy to offer workshops for free to all Utrecht University students. However: free of charge does not mean free of responsibility. Our activities tend to be fully booked well in advance. For every late cancellation or no-show we have had to disappoint students who would have liked to attend. This is how we work:
- Once you have signed up for a workshop, we expect you to attend;
- If you need to cancel your registration, do so at the earliest possible moment, at least 24 hours before the workshop;
- Not showing up without notice will mean you cannot participate in any Career Services activity for 8 weeks. Two no-shows mean you cannot participate for the remainder of the academic year.
