The Humanities CareerNight 2020 will take place on Tuesday February 11, 2020 from ca 5.30 – 10 pm! Save the date, and meanwhile: have a look at our previous career nights and contributing alumni for career inspiration (and networking!)

The Humanities Career Night 2019 on the evening of monday February 18 focussed on SKILLS: Unlock your talent! As a humanities student you learn all kinds of skills that are important once you enter the professional field, such as distinguishing primary and secondary issues, seeing the broader context, presenting, analyzing, summarizing and nuancing. You are very broadly educated, and you will get job opportunities in all kinds of places. But what exact skills do you already possess, and how can you unlock and express those abilities, once you get to the professional field?

At the Humanities Career Night 2019, workshops were offered to help students to discover, acknowledge and further develop their skills. There was a diverse group of alumni present, who were excited to explain how their education within the Humanities Department got them to where they are now!

The Humanities Career Night 2018 focussed on ‘Money within the Humanities’, and the 2017 theme was ‘Value of the Humanities’. The clips below will give you a short impression from the last years:
