Partner Career Workshop September

14 september 2021 10:00 t/m 12:00 - Locatie: ONLINE

Note: In order to follow the regulations to reduce the infections caused by corona, we will keep using the online format for our workshops. If new changes arrive we will inform you on time.

TU Delft provides a series of 7 workshops to partners of TU Delft employees, who have (recently) moved to the Netherlands and would like to learn more about the Dutch job market and the job application process in The Netherlands.

The workshops are thematically coordinated and in order to achieve the best result, therefore, enrolments are only possible for the whole workshop programme and not for an individual workshop only.

Besides getting trained on the Dutch job market, you will also get to know your peer participants who might be in a similar situation as you are. After the final workshop we have lunch together and a professional photographer will take your profile picture for your LinkedIn profile (if possible due to COVID regulations).

Partners / Spouses of TU Delft employees who have recently moved to the Netherlands and are interested in information about the Dutch labour market and are willing to receive job hunting skills. The workshop is free of charge for international partners of TU Delft employees.

Are you a partner of a guest researcher of TU Delft? We have to inform you that seats in this workshop are primarily reserved for partners of employees with a regular contract. Please register and in case there are open spots you are more than welcome to join and we will reach out to you no later than 3 days before the start of the workshop.
