Career events

  • Several times a year, the Graduate School of Communication hosts a colloquium series called Communication Science on the Spot. During these sessions, a communication professional is interviewed by a Graduate School lecturer or researcher. Attendees are always encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation in order to help stimulate a lively debate. Previous speakers include Mirthe Enklaar (PepsiCo Benelux), Jutta Jakob (Newzoo), Belinda Borck (Tony's Chocoloney) and Ashley Vinson (Twitter).
  • We regularly organise events and workshops under the name Career Matters that help you prepare yourself for entry into the job market. The workshops are designed to help you gain practical, relevant skills that will help improve your employability after graduation. Think of topics related to online marketing for example, such as Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Google Analytics or Social Advertising, or to the field of journalism, such as writing an effective press release or a journalistic blog.
