Shaping 2030: UT is here to empower society through sustainable solutions. We choose to be the ultimate people-first university of technology. Career Services is UT's expertise center for general and independent guidance of career questions & study choice questions of 'various' target groups of UT students. Career Services has the following mission:
- Help students achieve their career goals by laying a sustainable foundation for their study choice and career skills. We help students discover their talents and translate them into the labor market. Our working method is aimed at increasing awareness and self-confidence in preparation for contact with the labourmarket;
- Sharing professional knowledge with student counselors and student trainers;
- Contributing to cross-educational projects aimed at students' personal development and career skills;
- Contributing to regional, national or international projects;
- To contribute to policy development UT-wide.
Our core value is to put the student at the center of his research question. Our offer includes:
- individual guidance (study choice trajectory, career coaching and counseling);
- study choice / career testing;
- office hours for CV checks and motivation letters;
- workshops and training courses;
- and an online offer like a jobboard or information about labour market legislation (when is someone allowed to work etc).
The purpose of this is to motivate students in their personal quest, their personal development, career and coaching questions. And to provide them with tools for career questions: “who am I, what am I capable of, what do I want” and job marketing skills. Such a process consists of an intake interview and a number of follow-up interviews with a study choice or career coach. You can make an appointment through our secretariat or via our website.
Career Services uses tests to clarify student choice issues. We do this, among other things, by offering online tests. A test result is always discussed in a personal conversation. During the consultation hours for CV checks and motivation letters, students can submit their personal questions and discuss them with a career coach. In workshops and training courses, study choice and career themes are discussed in groups. This uses group dynamics, students learn from each other. We also cooperate in this area with other stakeholders at UT, such as student association Integrand or teachers from faculties and in some cases we make use of external trainers. There is also the possibility for an online E-coach process. Our scope extends up to one year after graduation. We also guide students in the final phase of study or international students in their search year of the IND in the challenging search from study to work.
