The Ladies dinner is an opportunity for ambitious female students to meet recruiters on a personal level.

The dinner will either be a walking dinner, or students will be placed at several tables where recruiters of the companies are seated. Prior to dinner, the companies have time for a short presentation. CV’s will be provided in advance to aid the selection of students for this night.

During this activity students are able to actively cooperate with the recruiters in teams. Since companies can choose specific themes, linked to their own branding, the workshop is highly tailor made. This means that prior to the workshop, companies can indicate what kind of painting they would like to create (e.g. company logo/ vision can be incorporated). The maximum number of recruiters is 4. This makes the total amount of participants 24. If you would like to have less recruiters, the amount of students can increase.

The company that hosts this workshop is Schilder Clinic. They have been working with companies, recruiters and students for several years already and know exactly where to lay the focus points of the workshop. This workshop is not a standard workshop, recruiters and students have to work cooperatively in teams and try to solve the “Puzzle”. Recruiters can meet students in a creative way where both parties have to team up together to perform the best result.

For this activity, resume screening and selection is required. A total of 15 students may attend the dinner, with a maximum duration of 120 minutes. The workshop will be held at the M-Building.

The first hour, students can drink a cup of coffee with the recruiters, the next hour, they will learn how to brew a cup themselves. The teams take turns so everyone has the chance to talk to each other.

Every day ends with a network drink, which gives you the perfect opportunity to meet the participating students again in an informal environment. Drinks and snacks will be provided at the network drink. The network drinks will take place in the same location as the event, the M-Building, at the roeterseiland campus.

Testimonial

“From the 27th of November until the 1st of December we organized the second edition of the Sefa Career Week. In that week we had 27 companies, 43 activities and more than 300 students, so we can proudly say that it was a huge success!  The week was the perfect opportunity for all students from the faculty of Economics & Business to meet companies, seek opportunities for internships and even meet their future employer, this could be done through: presentations, cases, interviews, dinners, high-wines, lunches and boat tours. A couple of the companies coming were: Samsung, ING, Albert Heijn and Unilever. As the committee you start preparing for the week almost 10 months earlier. The preparation period is quite long and can be intense, as there will be a lot of unexpected events. In the end however it is all worth it, because you will not only learn a lot, but you will organize a week to remember!”
