Workshop ‘LinkedIn: how to optimize your profile’

By Erna van Poppel, social media enthusiast and TSHD-alumna

Like most students who are active on social networks, you probably have come across LinkedIn – a powerful tool that can help you make the transition from student to professional. As a current student you’ve probably been encouraged by parents, classmates, or lecturers to create a LinkedIn account, but may not be aware of the benefits. You may have created a profile, added a few personal details and forgotten it, either through lack of success, or through failing to see the point at all.

In this workshop you’ll get the most important tips and insights to get you started (again), and… if you dare, we’ll take a look at your profile together.

Workshop ‘Enterpreneurship: what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur’

By Ruud Sneep, PhD Candidate & Founder Ten Feet Tall Entrepraineeship programme by TenFeetTallEntrepreneurship

Ten Feet Tall addresses the notion that less than 20% of academic graduates in the field of Entrepreneurship start their own business. Most graduates first aim to gain experience at a corporate or start-up setting. We have argued that such an initial choice in building one's experience may help, but comes with the risk that one gets accommodated or even "locked-in" to a particular profession, setting or salary. 

Are you thinking about starting your own business or maybe curious to find out what it means to be a freelancer? Ruud tells you about his own background and what to keep in mind and possibly develop in order to become a successful entrepreneur.
