One session
Free of charge

"It's all about networking!" we hear (and say) all the time... in our professional careers when looking for a job, in our entrepreneurial adventures when looking for inspiration, co-founders or team-members, and even in our personal lifes when looking for like-minded people to do activities together. But HOW exactly do you network?! 

Networking is all about connecting with other people. It is rarely effective to simply pitch yourself to the person you just met at a networking event or to overload them with questions. But how should you network then? What makes networking effective and fun, in whichever kind of networking situation?

In this 2-hour workshop, we will practice networking together with fellow students from various study backgrounds. By doing so, we will dismantle false networking beliefs, we will make mistakes and we will learn from them, what to do and what not to do when networking. This way you will discover what works best for you. You will leave this workshop with the experience and confidence to keep networking and have fun with it!

For whom?

Any UU-student interested to participate! There’s no prior knowledge needed. Preparation will consist of following a short e-module on networking, which will be shared a week in advance to the workshop. The workshop is free of charge, but we do expect you to show up and participate once you’ve registered. The language of the workshop is English, unless there are only Dutch-speaking participants present.


This workshop is given by Ellen Ruifrok (Career Services).

This workshop is a collaboration between the UU Centre for Entrepreneurship and the Honours Student Council.

Networking Workshop: 3 June from 17:00 to 19:00
