5 WORKSHOPS

What should you expect from each workshop?

Be ready for action and interaction, as you will listen little, think hard about your strengths and potential, and practice what you’ve learned. Ours will be an experiential learning approach: rather than lots of theoretical presentations, we believe in learning by doing method, followed by reflecting on the experience (also helped by personalized feedback and exchanges with fellow attendees).

 

Our goal? Equip each student with experiences that employers value! No need to wait to finish your studies to get work relevant experience!

We will show you that you have lots of opportunities during your university time to develop many skills and experiences employers are looking for! 

Each workshop is a 3-hour mix of: 

  • Testimonials: young professionals from the field will tell their career stories and you can ask all your questions and advice on professional development.

  • Tutorials: practical and hands-on exercises will help you reflect on your strengths and learning plans; you will take home a lot of resources that will help reply to all the career questions you might have!

  • Personalized feedback: thanks to simulations, CV-checks, and personal mentoring.
