Career Events

A career event is an excellent opportunity to present your company and to meet students and graduates. The majority of the career events focus on a specific discipline or field and are organised by one of the UvA’s student-run associations. The UvA hosts a number of general career events aimed at all Dutch and international UvA students.

Career Skills week

From 18-22 February 2019 the UvA organises a skills and recruitment week for our Dutch and International  Bachelor's and Master's students.

It is no longer possible to do so during upcoming UvA Career Skills Week, but please let us know if you're interested in participating in our next edition.

UvA Career events: mailing list

As an employer there are three ways to participate:

  • By organising a lecture or workshop about a job specific skill, in which you are an expert and which will help the student get more insight in his or her future job field
  • By organising recruitment interviews at one of our locations
  • By hosting a stand on our job fair.
  • This includes the possibility to do a pitch

International Talent Event Amsterdam

Mid April we will be organising the International Talent Event Amsterdam (ITEA) where you can meet and connect with our international students and recent graduates from all different discipline such as IT, business, finance, science and marketing. Participants are searching for jobs and/or internships.
