Alumni Career Café for PhD candidates

Following a successful first edition of our online PhD Alumni Career Café earlier this year, Twente PhD candidates are invited to another evening gathering with PhD alumni - this time in person and with food!  The hybrid event is being organized by the Alumni Office, P-NUT, TGS, UT Career Develpment Centre & UT Centre for Education Support. 

At this special gathering current PhD candidates towards the end of their programmes in their 3rd, 4th or above year can learn from the experiences of UT PhD alumni from both the Netherlands and around the world. PhD candidates who are thinking about their next step after the UT and those who might be considering work in the private sector could greatly benefit from the tips and tricks from our more experienced alumni. This way the alumni network can help shape the future of new Twente PhDs.

About the Career Café: During 3 rounds of speed dating, PhD candidates will have the opportunity to talk within small groups to PhD alumni from various sectors: from start-ups to academia and from corporate to governmental organizations. This hopefully will give you a good perspective on different career paths. After these 3 rounds we will share experiences and reflections.

This event takes place on Tuesday November 2nd from 19:00hr till 21:30hr in the UT DesignLab 'Classroom of the Future' - PhD candidates from their 3rd or later year can register via this link.
