TLS Career event

TLS Career event: Fit for the Future

Date: Time: 13:00 Location: CUBE, Tilburg University

Take control of your future career and join the biggest career event of Tilburg Law School on February 18. Find out everything about labor market developments and learn what you can do to prepare for your future career. The event is organized by Tilburg Law School in collaboration with TLS Career Services and study association Magister JFT. There will be no regular classes for TLS students during the event.

The labor market for legal experts and public administration experts is changing. Besides your study program, you will also need extra competencies where your personal development is concerned: soft skills, digital skills, and labor market skills. The event offers insights into these developments and gives you tips on how to prepare optimally for your future career.

For whom?

Whether you are a freshman or a Master’s student, whether you study law or public administration, the tips you can pick up at this event will stand you in good stead in your future career. It is important in every phase of your studies that you think about and prepare for the future. The event will be bilingual.

We also welcome students of the Juridische Hogeschool Avans-Fontys, TLS alumni and TLS colleagues.

Please let us know that you will be attending and register now!
