Alumni career development

Are you considering a next step in your career? 

After your program at TIAS, there may be a time that you reflect on your current job and/or your future career ambitions. What kind of a career issue do you want to solve?

  • I feel I’m ready for the next step, but I don’t know what I really want.
  • I really don’t know what I want; it’s quite hard for me to define my qualities and talents
  • I know what I want, but my CV needs a makeover. I want to profile myself on the job market!
  • My LinkedIn profile is not up to date, and I don’t know how I can use LinkedIn for my job search/networking opportunities.

TIAS is offering career consulting services to help you find answers about your career related questions. This career consultant is a NOLOC-recognized career professional. You can contact Marleen Croonen, Senior Career Consultant, to schedule your intake orientation session (free of charge).

Reactions from recent participants:

  • "The TIAS career consultant was able to open up doors that I was not able to open on my own. For example, my TIAS career consultant has contacts with different company recruiters ánd TIAS alumni, and was able to bring my resume to their attention in a way that I could not."
  • "Having help from a career consultant gave me more confidence to tackle my job hunt and create a clear vision of my future career path. This helped me to clearly communicate my goals in the job interviews as well."

Assessment “My career”

“My Career” is giving you an independent picture of who you are, wat your work preferences are and what you want. This is helpful if you want to broaden your scope, within or outside your current job. It’s broadening your self-understanding. By filling out “My Career”, it doesn’t mean that you have to do something differently; that’s up to you. If you like, you can share the outcome/your results with your career consultant of manager.

“My career” consists of digital questionnaires, which you can fill out at home. The questionnaires are about your personal traits, work motives, work preferences, preferred roles, talents, competences and change power. It takes about an hour to answer these questions.

When you’re finished, you can download your report immediately, with results on the several aspects of this assessment. In this report you’ll also find tips how to work on the next step in your career.

Fee: €450,- including report discussion (incl. VAT)
