Preface mayor of Wageningen Wageningen is a city where knowledge and science meet. Also this time in the Career Week organised by Make a Move. During this Career Week you as a student in Wageningen get in touch with the labor market. Along with different large companies you are in a position to explore your career opportunities. In this program booklet you will read more about the activities that will happen these days. You are almost ready to enter the labor market. Make a Move Wageningen opens the doors to make your first step to a successful career with the Career Week. Career is defined in the Dutch dictionary as ‘loopbaan’; making steps in a series. Not standing still in social life, but making progress. Participating in the Career Week is the first and maybe the most important step in these series. Wageningen, The City of Life Sciences, offers students and companies an inspiring and sophisticated international environment. The Career Week creates a platform where interesting opportunities exist for both students and business. This suits the international character of Wageningen well. Therefore we are proud that in this week big companies such as Unilever, Mars and DSM have found the way to Wageningen. During the Career Week different possibilities to make contact with the present companies. Potential employers present themselves so that you have a good impression of what is going on at these companies. In the program there is also space for individual consults. Discover during the company lunches what business life has to offer for you and, not in the last place, what you have to offer for business life. In my own career I have experienced how important it is to get in touch with different institutions and companies. By making conversations and visiting companies you will explore the possibilities and be in the right positions to make decisions. It is the art to take out what is inside. The Career Week is a wonderful step to a beautiful career. I wish you the best of luck during this discovery! Geert van Rumund Mayor of Wageningen

Career Week 6 & 7 April 2011


Introduction Make a Move coordinator Just like most students in the start of their student life I did not really think about my future career. Making career, that is what I will do after my graduation. But after a while I got in contact with Make a Move. Make a Move organized a party, but with a serious message. Organize your future career, c ome to the Make a Move Career Week. Due to the Career Week, I experienced that my career has already started. I visited lots of different companies, even the companies that seemed not to fit my study background. A lot of interesting companies were interested in me, even if they were not working on my study area, and I became interested in them. By that time I realised the importance of these career events and I applied for Make a Move. Now I work together with a great team of 5 fantastic people working on organizing trainings, the Career Week and other activities throughout the year. This team has been very busy organizing the Career Week presented to you. They did not only organize it for themselves, they want you to enjoy it too! During these career days you can orientate, get in touch with companies, maybe there are possibilities for you to arrange an internship or you can be invited for an application at a company, everything is possible! I hope that the Make a Move Career Week can offer you what it offered me. We try to get all the students of Wageningen University in touch with different kind of companies, hopefully you see some companies that are very interesting to you. Broaden your perspective, not only by watching company presentations of companies you are already interested in. My advice is also to visit companies that you never heard or thought of. Subscribe for workshops, individual conversations and lunches, see if a company fits you and if you fit into a company. Enjoy! Harold Hoiting Coordinator Make a Move 2010 – 2011

What is Make a Move? One of the hardest things to find out during your studies, is what you want to do once you are finished. Do you want to work at a big company, like Unilever? Or would you rather start your own business? It takes selfknowledge to find out these things. And once you have figured out what you want to do, how are you going to make the first step? To help you in this process, Make a Move organizes a series of workshops and trainings in order to prepare you for your career. We do so by a process of three steps.

Step 1: Self Assessment The first step is called Self Assessment. It is about finding out who you are and what you want to do.

The Future is Yours!

To help you make this first step, Make a Move organizes The Future is Yours! During this one-day event, the focus is on how to get most out of student life and combining this with your study. The Future is Yours! is mainly focused on first and second year bachelor students.

What is this?? This is a Quick Response code. If you scan a QRcode with an application on your smartphone, the code will take you to a website. This QR-code for instance takes you to the Make a Move website.

Career Week 6 & 7 April 2011


Step 2: Orientation In this phase you will start orientating on the possibilities that lie ahead for you. With the following two activities we offer you the opportunity to discover what your career might look like.

Career Week

This year the Career Week takes place on the 6th and 7th of April. During these two days there are numerous ways of getting in touch with specific companies in order to make the first contact. There are for instance company-presentations, workshops, individual conversations and company-lunches to attend.

Meet a mentor

The Meet a Mentor program is a great opportunity to experience what working in the company of your dreams is like. The Mentorship Program exists of a trail of four months, at which you get a mentor from a specific company with whom you are going to undertake different activities.

9

Step 3: Application This is the final stage of the Make a Move process. You now know what you want. Now, it is time to make a move!

Application- and Assessmenttraining

After orientating on the labour market it is time to send in your application. To prepare you for this final step towards your career, Make a Move organizes the Application- and Assessment-training. This training teaches you to get to work effective and structured during your application procedure. You will get tips and tricks for writing your application letter, making a clarifying CV and how you can present yourself for the best at your job application.

Jij weet dat een goede start meteen een voorsprong geeft.

Word jij de Rabobank? Rabobank. Een bank met ideeĂŤn.

www.rabobank.nl/werken


Word of Martin Kropff Make a move. It is the perfect advise for young people to prepare for later careers. Your study will provide you with the necessary skills and expertise, but that is only the basis. Wageningen University is a leading university in the international life sciences domain. So after graduation you have the best possible certificate to work your way to the labor market. But it is not enough. You will have to be able to move, to be flexible, to be open minded‌ You need to understand that an issue hardly ever is a mere technological issue, but that other dimensions may play an important role. You will have to be able to work together with people in other fields of expertise and it is necessary to be a team player or a team leader. During your study at our university we tell you this all the time. We provide you with blended learning methods: groups, self study, classical teaching, projects etc. Again: this is only the basis. It is very important to take up other tasks next to your curricular study: organize a seminar, be active in study associations, take part in organizing open days or happenings at fraternities and be active in for instance the student council or political activities. It provides you with tools an insights to be able to understand the dynamics of the labor market and to be able to handle a career in an enterprise, your own business or in a governmental body. Of course it is nice to orient yourself on a future career: what do you want to be? A scientist, a businessman, a policy maker? And when you want to work for business enterprises make sure you know what kind of businesses you prefer. So look around and participate in career markets. But overall it is important to be flexible: when I was near my graduation I was quite sure I never wanted to be a scientist and I was orienting myself on a career in education. Then I went to Wageningen for my last thesis and I became fascinated by the Wageningen approach. So I became a scientist and a professor. I loved it and I never expected to go into management. But opportunity knocked on my door and I switched to run the plant sciences group and now I am your rector magnificus. I never planned this career to happen, but I was ready to make the right moves at the right times. And that is what is all about: make a move! Martin Kropff Rector Magnificus Wageningen University

Career Week 6 & 7 April 2011


Career Week activities This year the Career Week takes place on the 6th and 7th of April. During the Career Week there is a list of activities organized for you to orientate on the labor market. Some are more general so that you can orientate which companies are interesting for you. Others are more specific and help you to get in touch with the company of your dreams. In this chapter you will find a list of activities to attend.

TIP! Do not be afraid to ask questions. The Career Week is meant for companies to get in touch with students, but also for you to gather information about the companies!

Company Presentations (CP)

Company presentations are an accessible way to gain general as well as more specific knowledge about companies. Different interesting companies will be present at the Make a Move Career Week and some of them will inform you through an interactive presentation which will take about 40 minutes. They will inform you about possibilities for an internship, about aspects of their organization, the working atmosphere and business culture, further (international) education possibilities and career opportunities. After the presentation, 20 minutes are left for you to ask questions. The company presentations are a great way to compare the companies of your interest and to find out which company appeals to you.

For whom? The presentations are interesting for both orientating students as well as students who are in the final stage of their study and are looking for an internship or job.

TIP! Before going to different activities with the company of your interest, it is recommended to have some information in advance. Therefore check the website or take a look at the ‘Profielboek’.

12

Career Week 6 & 7 April 2011


Individual Consult (IC)

This is your chance to get into direct contact with recruiters from the top business community. During a 40 minutes consult you can make the first contact with the company of your interest. You can use these consults to arrange participation in a business course, internship or maybe even a job. Furthermore you will gain experience in carrying out an application interview. You can also choose for a more informal consult, through which you can learn more about a company by asking specific questions.

For whom? The individual consults aim at students who are looking for an internship or a starters function. Companies select students based on their CV and motivation. It is strongly recommended to upload your CV on the Make a Move website, www.makeamovewageningen.nl, so that companies can invite you for an individual consult.

TIP!

The individual consult is about as close as it gets to the company of your dreams on the Career Week. Be well prepared so that you can benefit from this opportunity to the fullest!

Company Dinners and Lunches (CD)

Besides the individual consults there are more opportunities to get in touch with recruiters of participating companies. One of these is a company dinner or lunch. In this informal and relaxing setting recruiters are able to answer all your questions. Besides that the informal setting of a dinner or lunch enables you to get a ‘taste’ of the atmosphere of the company.

For whom? This part aims at students who want to get in contact with companies in an informal but also very intensive way. Therefore this part is particularly interesting for students that are in the last phase of their study and are seriously orientating on the business market.

13

Career Week 6 & 7 April 2011


Career Week activities Company Specific Activity (CSA)

For this part companies are challenged to organise an activity that represents the company. In this way companies get to know students on their own, original way. During this part you get to know a company in a short time. Besides that there are plenty of opportunities to make sure the company gets to know you. An example of a company specific activity is to solve a case, a more relaxing activity like a high tea or a physically active program like sporting or cooking with the company you have chosen. These activities will take about three hours. Visit www.makeamove.nl/wageningen to discover what kind of type of student the company of your interest is looking for.

For whom? This part of the Make a Move Career Week is particularly

aiming at students who will finish their master soon, who are seriously browsing the labor market and already TIP! know which companies they are interes- The Career Week is the opted in. portunity to orientate on the labor market, make sure you benefit from this opportunity to the fullest. Do not hesitate to approach companies, they are here for you!

Lunchtime

Besides the company lunches there will be a lunch for all participants of the Career Week, facilitated by Hotel Restaurant ‘Nol in ‘t Bosch’. This is a great opportunity to take your time to prepare for an individual consult, to relax or to ask recruiters some questions.

Drink

At the end of the day all students and recruiters are invited to have a drink together. You can have a last nice talk with the recruiters and fill in the evaluation form of a company presentation, individual consult or company specific activity. All students are invited so there is no need to sign up for this drink.

TIP! There is no second chance for a first impression! To make sure your first impression is good, wear the right outfit. Don’t show up in your casual friday outfit. 14

The Make a Move experience Dear Student, About five years ago I was in the third year of my study program and I was not familiar with the job market at all. Therefore I joined the Make a Move career week in 2005. The career event impressed me by the amount of presentations and information, while the recruiters weren’t very interested in me yet. What I had remembered, was that an active student life will contribute to developing your own skills and it will be helpful for your job application as well. The next year I joined AIESEC as a company contact for the Make a Move career week 2006. As a company contact you have to sell your student city to the relevant companies. Together with your team you facilitate the match between the company and the student by organizing application courses, pre assessments and the final event; the Make a Move Career Week! The year as a company contact within the Make a Move team and within the AIESEC committee has been a great experience. I have met many people from all over the world and I have learned to work together with people with a different background and a different view. Next to that you have the opportunity to join National Congresses, where we have discussed different management models and trained our skills. This was a very good preparation for my own career. When I was looking for a job at the end of my study in 2008, I was informed and well prepared for the job market due to the Make a Move career week and the AIESEC experience. That’s why I would like to recommend everybody to start with the orientation on the job market as soon as you get the chance. If you know what the market has to offer, you are able to prepare yourself and eventually work on your skills. This will definitely increase your job opportunities. As a final remark I would like to wish you a successful Make a Move career event and hopefully a good orientation or even a match!
