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 23. 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. During previous editions we welcomed speakers such as Tiny Sanders, Jeroen Dijsselbloem and Stephanie Hottenhuis.
By participating in the Training Day at the Willem II Conference Center on April 12, 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’s Case Days will take place on April 8, 9 and 16. During these days, students will get to know the companies during an extensive case, business lunch and informal drink.
The Consultancy Experience will take place on April 13 and 14. Are you interested in consultancy and do you want to experience what it is like to be a consultant? Or do you want to get in touch with leading consultancy firms? The Consultancy Experience will offer you the perfect opportunity to get to know these big strategy consulting firms and to show them your skills and competences.
A special day for students interested in the Big Four will be organized on April 15: the Big Four Accountancy Experience. During this Day you will solve an challenging accounting case and get to know the Big Four (Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC) during a lunch, golf clinic and barbeque.
