Tilburg University Career Week
You want to get a great start to your career after your studies, right? Make sure you prepare for the job market during your studies! In order to help you with this, Tilburg University joins forces with the study associations during the Tilburg University Career Week: a week which is all about job market orientation for all our students.
A good job market preparation is important. With the Tilburg University Career Week, we offer you the opportunity to participate in career events of study associations of the several Schools: the Economic Business Days (EBT), the Legal Business Days (LBT), the Social Sciences Career Event Tilburg (SCT) and the TSHD Career Day.
Although the programs are primarily aimed at students of the relevant School, they are also partly open for students of the other Schools. Moreover, you could join cross-school activities, like a collective kick-off and individual meetings with a coach.

“Thanks to the EBT I secured an internship that has deepened my appreciation of what I learn at university. For me, knowing that this is what I’m studying for is a great motivator, because nothing beats doing what you enjoy doing.”
Tom van DijkOrganization Studies student, former participant SCT
“I would like to call on my fellow students to attend events and workshops, for example from the SCT. It is part of your personal and professional development.”

Dennis van den BroekManaging director at Indicia, company participant TSHD Career Day
“An event like the TSHD Career Day helps students to explore their options broadly and to discover what is out there on the job market.”
Jolijn GevenVan Iersel Luchtman Advocaten, company participant LBT
"Regularly participate in events like the LBT. Career orientation takes time, so be sure to start early. Moreover, it will help you to make decisions, e.g., when choosing your Master’s program or electives."
The study associations of the faculties have been organizing their own career events for years. Until 2021, most of these events were only specifically aimed at the students within the own faculty. Because of the developments in the job market, organizations are more often looking for candidates with a broad orientation. Then, joining the forces of these organizations is a logical step. Through this cooperation – which results in a university-wide Career Week – we want to enable you to prepare yourself as well and as broadly as possible for the transition from study to your future career.
