The Economic Business weeks Tilburg (EBT) is a project of Faculty Association Asset in cooperation with Tilburg University. The event is a unique opportunity for students to orientate themselves on their career, get more information about their future employers and find the job they are looking for. In over three weeks the EBT offers students everything they need to prepare for their career. Presentations, workshops, trainings and many more activities are provided by over 90 companies. Unlock your future!
To be optimally prepared for the EBT, the CV Checks & LinkedIn Checks are organized on February 18. During this day, experts will provide feedback on your CV and LinkedIn profile. As both are increasingly essential these days, it is of utmost importance to make sure the content is relevant and complete. The experts will explain what you can improve to make sure your CV and LinkedIn page will stand out from the others.
The program officially starts with the Business Night, the prestigious grand opening of the EBT. The event will take place at the Auditorium of Tilburg University on the evening of April 6. Prominent speakers will be welcomed, who will share their inspiring stories and experiences about their career path. Last year we welcomed Marjan van Loon, Mattijs ten Brink, Philip Mountford, Stephanie Hottenhuis and Maarten Bouwhuis was the speaker of the day. This edition, Sander Schimmelpenninck will be the speaker of the day and we will welcome Jean-François van Boxmeer (CEO Heineken International), Hans Honig (CEO Deloitte Nederland) and Gerard Timmer (Managing Director NOS).
By participating in the Training Day at the Willem II Conference Center on April 8, you will be able to develop your personal skills as well as to prepare for a job application. It is also a great opportunity to prepare for the EBT.
Next to this, the Case Days are organized in which you can extensively get to know one specific company during a whole day. This year we organize the Heineken Case Day, the FrieslandCampina Case Day and the PepsiCo Case Day. The FrieslandCampina & Heineken Case Days will take place on April 9, while the PepsiCo Case Day will take place on April 17. During these days, students will get to know the companies during an extensive case, business lunch and informal drink.
