Career services

Would you like to prepare yourself for a future after your degree? Kick-start your career path! Find the job that is right for you? Career Services organizes activities, some of them within your own academic program, to support you while you prepare for your professional career.

Join the GSLS Career Services LinkedIn for up-to-date information about the available training possibilities and career planning, internship possibilities and job offers.

Start with the career check to create an action plan. You can also take a work-value test, the career choice test or the personality test. All the tests are available online.

You can also do the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test to invententory your personality. More information about the MBTI test can be found here.

Do you have questions about how to start your career? Would you like to discuss your resume or would you like to practice a job interview?

Plan an interview with the career officer Simone Kastelein (Faculty of Science) or Marte Otter / Linda Hofstra (Faculty of Medicine). Check the calendar to make an appointment.

Follow a workshop provided by the Career Services, for example self-analysis for career development, exploring the job market and networking or LinkedIn.

If you are unsure about whether a given workshop is relevant to your interests or have any other question about one of our workshops, send an email to careerservices@uu.nl. Please include your phone number so we can get in touch with you.

Throughout your career, it’s beneficial to have a broad network. You may already have a broad network: your family, friends, fellow students, student society, sportsclub, etc. In addition to these contacts, you can actively start looking for people you don’t know yet, but who can potentially help you along in your job hunt. Networking tips can be found here.

More information about how to clearly structure your resume, how to write an attractive application letter and how to prepare for a job interview is available here.

Are you ready to find your first job but unsure where or how to start your search? Up to six months after graduation you can still visit Career Services, join our workshops, fill in online tests, get a resume check and practice a job interview.
