Workshops and training

The UvA Student Careers Centre offers various workshops and information sessions about career subjects. These workshops can be divided in three categories: personal development and self-assessment, application skills and job market orientation.

Personal development and self-assessment

What do you think is important in work? What activities do you like the most? Finding a job starts with orientating on your own wishes and qualities. The following workshop and training will help you to get a better view of your professional profile.

Job application skills

Sometimes applying for jobs can seem like a full-time job in itself! There are a lot of aspects to deal with: writing a cover letter, drafting your CV, doing an assessment, etc. The good news: these are all skills that you can practise and that everyone can learn. Interested in getting better at one of these skills? Sign up for one of the following workshops:

Inspiring talk on varying topics

Every study period starts with a session about an exciting career or personal development topic.
