The Ambition Weeks is the time for companies and students can really get into contact with each other. There is a vast variety of activities, open for the students that have been chosen by the organising companies based on their resume. You can apply for various training sessions, one-on-one conversations, company breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and also multiple informal recruiting activities.
Various companies will organise training sessions during the Ambition Weeks. The competence-related sessions are aimed at improving the skills you need to enter the job market fully prepared. Other training sessions go deeper into the daily life of working at a company, taking you into the life of an employee by getting to solve a case with assistance of multiple experts.
The Ambition Weeks also host multiple one-on-one conversations: a personal talk between you and a company of your choice. Whether you’re looking for a non-committal orientation conversation where you get to know more about a company, or a more detailed conversation about the opportunities a company may have for you.
A great way to get in touch with recruiters of a company of your choice is having a company breakfast or lunch with them in the Faculty Club. At either breakfast or lunch time, you and nine other students will share a table with two recruiters. Breakfast time will be between 9 and 10:30 a.m. Do you have a busy schedule at that time? No worries, because you can also have lunch with them between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.
Fancy a delicious three-course dinner with a potential employer? Then register for a company dinner! We have two kinds of dinners available: a company-specific dinner and the so-called company course dinner. The company-specific dinner consists of five students and two recruiters from a single company sharing one table. During the dinner, you’ll have ample opportunity to talk with these recruiters. At a company course dinner, on the other hand, you and your four fellow students will change tables after each course, so that you’ll get to speak with two recruiters from two different companies during the evening.
Is an informal way of getting to know a company more your cup of tea? Then we have exactly what you are looking for! Apply for a variety of informal recruitment activities in the Activity Overview section, for example an escape room, a bowling game or a cooking workshop. Take your informal recruiting pick!
