UvA Career Networking Events 2023

The Student-Alumni Career Networking Events are a series of three events with a panel of international UvA alumni. They share their experiences in pursuing a career in the Netherlands after graduation, and also discuss all kinds of recent developments. All international UvA Master’s students considering a career in the Netherlands are invited to participate in the events.

Each panel discussion focuses on a different career sector, and is followed by informal networking with international students and alumni.

This year, we have 3 inspiring evenings in store for you (exact contents and speakers will follow soon):

Non-profit and NGO: 2 March 2023 (19:00-21:00)

Whether you are interested in environmental issues, women’s rights, education, human rights or any other cause, a non-profit organisation is the place where you can work on improving these issues. The non-profit and NGO sector is very broad, and includes many organisations that are not privately owned. It covers everything from large organisations such as the EU and UN to very small, quite unknown organisations. What is it like to work in this sector and how do you find the right career path? During this event UvA alumni shed light on these questions.

Humanities and Behavioural Sciences : 9 March 2023 (19:00-21:00) 

Content will follow soon.

Research and PhD: 16 March 2023 (19:00-21:00)

The research and academic sector has its own unwritten rules and culture. In general, you need analytical skills and a willingness to work hard and thrive in a fast-paced environment that has its own demands and rewards. Understanding the dynamics of academia will help you decide if a research career is right for you, and will help you successfully apply for a research position.
