Workshop Exploring the Job Market & Networking (in English)


The job market offers innumerable possibilities. In this workshop you will learn how to get a better understanding of organizations and positions. You will also learn how to use and improve the networks you belong to. In this workshop, we will look at the ways employers look for employees, so you can anticipate their needs as you look for a job. You will learn how to track jobs and vacancies and how to make use of your network. You will also learn how best to present yourself to prospective employers by preparing a professional pitch.

It makes sense to bear your preferences, qualities, and drives in mind as you explore the job market. To do that, you need a clear picture of what criteria your future job has to meet. If you don't have that yet, we recommend you take the Self-analysis for Career Development workshop first. You could also look into some jobs that interest you and formulate criteria based on those.

When you complete this workshop, you will better understand how to approach the job market and will be more aware of the potential of your own network. As a result, you will approach prospective employers with greater confidence.

Our no-show policy

We are happy to offer workshops for free to all Utrecht University students and PhD-candidates. 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 others 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.
