After graduation

Are you ready to find your first job but unsure where or how to start your search? Up to six months after graduation you can still visit Career Services, join our workshops, fill in online tests, get a resume check and practice a job interview.

From the moment you graduate you become an alumnus or alumna of Utrecht University, your academic program and your study society. You will automatically be included in the registry of the Alumni Office of Utrecht University, and you will receive information about all (career) events organized by the Young Alumni Network (YAN). 

Are you a foreign student?

Are you considering staying in the Netherlands after you graduate? Have a look at the Holland Alumni Network website, which contains lots of useful information. 

Would you like to know more about working in the Utrecht region? Have a look at Utrecht Region website for more specific information. 

International students

After studying in the Netherlands, you might also think of finding a job here. On this page you can find links to websites that might be useful at the different stages of the job search.
You can also sign up for an orientation year, so you can stay in the Netherlands longer and have time to search for a job.

You can increase your job opportunities in the Netherlands if you speak (a little) Dutch. Therefore Career Services, together with ESN, has created a beginners' course in Dutch. This course offers you the opportunity to learn the basics of the language through fun interactive exercises.
