Committee

 

Silver and Gold committees are the perfect way to develop your skills further, in a committee requiring a larger time commitment and greater responsibility. Benefits to joining a committee include:

  • Personal And Professional development
    As an active member, you get the opportunity to develop your social, organisational and professional skills. You will work together with your fellow committee members and organise ambitious and challenging events. Besides that, you will receive personal guidance and exclusive training.
  • CV Building
    A committee gives you the opportunity to distinguish yourself from other students and provides you with a head start at the beginning of your future career. You will be working in a professional and challenging environment and get connected to recruiters from top companies, as we have over 250 company contacts.
  • Social events
    Being active in one of our committees means that you can join social events specifically organised for active members, such as New Year’s Dinner, Active Members Weekend, Winter Sport, Gala and many more events during the year.

Martha Gonzales- Campus recruiter Philips
”Being in a committee will support your development because this is business, you need to research, present proposals, contact different vendors and company representatives. With all these tasks, you will be able to grow as a young professional, working on your negotiation and communication skills, but also getting to know how you would approach the business world in the near future.”

Why should you do an internship?
An internship is a great way to gain practical experience with the benefit of giving you the full experience of what it’s like to work at the respective company. Ranging from 2 months to a full year, there’s bound to be an internship that suits your needs. The company will also get to know you; internships are a frequently taken route to a great starter position or traineeship!
