De Jonge Honden: Your Worst Nightmare (this workshop lasts 2 hours)
As recent graduates, we know better than anyone that applying for a job is a true art form. And art needs practice. Jonge Honden has therefore created the "Your Worst Nightmare" job application workshop especially for students and starters. Participants get to work discovering their core qualities and practice in a real-life role play with confrontational application scenarios.
De Jonge Honden is an unique junior consultancy firm based in Utrecht that specializes in dynamic energizing advice.
Public Matters is a lobbying firm based in both Brussels and the Hague. Of course these locations aren’t randomly chosen. Public Matters is one of the more known organizations helping organizations of all kinds with representing their interests to the political arena. Companies can also count on Public Matters’ services when advice is needed for new laws or trade restrictions impacting the company’s business. However, they have a non-profit branch as well.
Their workshop will be, as an educated guesser might have thought, about how to represent group interests and working in public affairs in general.
De Jonge Honden (second half of the workshop)
SolveNL (you can't sign up for this workshop if you sign up voor de Jonge Honden)
SolveNL is a consultancy firm that tries to close the gap between ambitious students and companies that deal with all kind of complex issues. This company strives to increase the social awareness of future professionals by connecting students and organisations. During this workshop, you will get an insight in what it’s really like to work in this company, and consultancy firms in general.

How can the use of military force be avoided as much as possible, and what will modern warfare look like if avoidance is not an option?
