The Ambition Weeks is the time for companies and students to 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, the one-on-one conversations are the right activity 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. At either breakfast or lunchtime, you and seven other students will share a table with two recruiters. Breakfast time will be between 9.00 and 10:30. Do you have a busy schedule at that time? No worries, because you can also have lunch with them between 12:30 and 13:30.
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 dinner for five students and a company dinner for ten students. During the dinner, you’ll have ample opportunity to talk with these recruiters.
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 high tea or a cooking workshop. Take your informal recruiting pick!
