Career Discovery Nights: what is your future hiding?

Career Discovery Nights: what is your future hiding?

Would you like to find out about different career opportunities offered by your studies? The Career Discovery Nights give you an insight into the different possibilities. Four nights a year we zoom in on a specific sector or theme, such as Child & Youth or Social Impact.

For each evening, we invite a number of SBS alumni working in this field, all in different positions, different organizations - to give you the broadest possible perspective. The alumni talk about their work: how did they get here, what choices did they make and what do they love about their work? What golden advice do they give that you can benefit from? By participating in these evenings you will get a unique insight into their work field. The evenings are informal and interactive in nature, so get inspired and ask the alumni your questions.

The Career Discovery Nights:

  • Inspire and deepen your knowledge about career opportunities in a particular field;
  • Help you (Bachelor's and Master's) to broaden your view, look interdisciplinary and follow your own drive;
  • Offer you the opportunity to meet alumni and other students, network.

The Career Discovery Nights are an initiative of Career Services FSW, but come about in collaboration with FSW’s student associations, alumni, colleagues and fellow students.
