Workshop: recognising opportunities and reinforcing your natural ability

For you?

Are you interested in a lot of different things? Or do you have difficulty deciding what your strengths are and what a fit is for you in your job? In this workshop, you’ll learn to develop a personal vision of yourself in a professional role. This will bring focus to choosing the next (career) step. Finding a job starts with knowing yourself. You’ll get to work on developing insights into your values and the themes that are important to you in life and work. Also, you’ll explore your skills, like cooperation, finding solutions or the competencies you’ve developed during your studies. Together, these insights provide you with a solid base for making decisions about your future.
