Career Committee

The Career Committee is a committee that is focused on providing events that help students transition from studying politics to finding a job. Together the aim is to provide a platform for further inspiration and curiosity of the future to come. Within this committee you will have the opportunity to come up with creative ideas to show the broadness of the course, invite open discussion and contribute to better prepared students in the life after university. 

What type of events?

In the career committee two types of events are planned; networking events and skills events. 

The Networking events are made to broaden our horizon in what a political science student can do in the future. We will contact larger and smaller private corporations and public administration representatives to share their experiences with us to get a closer look behind the closed doors of what we might be interested in the future. We will do this by also inviting our alumni students to share their experiences and creating that essential network. 

So why do we network and why is it so important? 

Networking is one of the most effective and essential way to spread ideas, job opportunities, and understanding of the job market. Being a graduate of any university degree will partly land your first job, but having a broad network is what keeps it going. 

The Skills events are focussed on provinding students with the professional skillset needed for getting a job, an interview, an internship and many other positions. This will help students to practice interviews, set up LinkedIn profiles professionally, creation of a solid CV, and building a motivational letter structure. We will together in the committee find experts that can teach us all of these sometimes forgotten skills and have the best starting point after university.
