As a student union, one of your goals is probably to offer first-class guidance to your members to prepare them for their professional careers.
At Crossbridge, we offer you just that: qualitative workshops built on year-long expertise and hosted by one of our enthusiastic Crossbridgers.
What’s more, we have put together useful guides for you, tailored to young graduates and covering specific job-hunt-related topics.
The perfect combination of theory and practice, our interactive workshops are students’ ticket to a successful job hunt.
We are currently offering 6 modules, each focusing on a specific topic. During a workshop, we address one or two of these topics in great depth.
Come with us on a journey to discover your true self and the world around you! After all, before you can find the job of your dreams, you first need to know what those dreams are. On this path to self-discovery, we will reflect on some core issues, such as these:
What are my core strengths, interests and skills?
What drives me and gives me energy?
What do I want to achieve in life and work?
What do I find stressful?
What type of company and working environment would make me feel at home?
What job(s) suit me?
Build your brand
How can you get noticed by prospective employers? Does your body language and appearance match what you say? How do others see you?
During this workshop, participants learn to create and deliver a strong elevator pitch. By translating the impression you want to make into your actual body language, attitude and outfit, you will not only increase your credibility, but also improve your chances of success during your job hunt.
Boost your network
Did you know that 70% of all vacancies are filled through networking? Networking is by far the best way to land a new job. By creating and maintaining professional relations both online and offline, you can give a boost to your career as well as your personal life.
What are the best ways to put this into practice as a student? This workshop will teach you the ins and outs of this invaluable skill.
