How to build a network that creates opportunities
Make yourself positively noticed
You can also seize the opportunity to make yourself positively noticed, so that in the long run you can be considered for a job. For example, if you still have a few years left of your studies, it is probably not their recently posted UX position that you are looking for. But it may be that you are looking for the same position the next time it becomes vacant.
IT-Day is an obvious opportunity to build a network in your industry and to create openings that are interesting to you, where you are right now.
How to get a foothold in companies
We know that one of the best things you can do for your future job search is to establish partnerships with companies while you are still studying. This can be, for example, by finding a company that you can write a thesis in collaboration with. You might also consider doing an exam project in collaboration with R&D or the development department in a company, or secure yourself an internship for a semester.
Collaborations and internships give you valuable, hands-on work experience that is worth its weight in gold when you apply for your first full-time job.
So if you are still a student, we would recommend that you enter into dialogue with companies on IT-Day to explore opportunities for collaboration right now. Here are some of the things you can do to build networks and create opportunities.
