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 80 companies. Unlock your future!
To be optimally prepared for the EBT, the CV Checks & LinkedIn Checks are organized on February 15. 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, in the evening of April 5. Inspiring speakers will come to the campus of Tilburg University to talk about personal experiences and stories and their career path.
After the Business Night, the Case Days will take place. The Case Days are organized in which you can extensively get to know one specific company during a whole day. The Case Days for the EBT 2022 will take place on April 6, 7, and 8. Last year, NIBC, Coolblue and FrieslandCampina were organizing the Case Days. During these days, you will get to know the company during an extensive case followed by an informal activity.
By participating in the Training Day on April 11, 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.
