Student-Alumni Career Talks: Research and PhD
Connect with international UvA alumni, gain insight into the Dutch labour market and start building your professional network
Are you an international UvA student or recent graduate and considering starting your career in the research sector? During this first Student-Alumni Career Talk in a series of four you will have the opportunity to expand your network and learn how UvA alumni started their research career in the Netherlands.
Jump-start your career at the Career Networking Events
The Career Talks feature a panel of international UvA-alumni who will share their experiences in finding a job in the Netherlands after graduation. The highly interactive panel discussion is followed by informal networking drinks with fellow students and alumni.
Research and PhD sector in the spotlight
The research and academic sector has its own unwritten rules and culture. On the whole, it involves hard work in a fast-paced environment that has its own demands and rewards . Understanding the dynamics of academia will help you to decide whether a research career is the right fit for you and will aid you in successfully applying for a research position.
