The Humanities CareerNight 2020 will take place on Tuesday February 11, 2020 from ca 5.30 – 10 pm! 

The theme of this year’s Humanities Career Night will be ‘Wanted: Humanities Graduates!’ This fourth edition of the Career Night will focus on unlocking the value of the humanities scholar. After all, alpha studies are sometimes seen as not profitable, what use is a bachelor’s degree in history, musicology or Celtic languages and culture? Yet, Humanities Graduates bring along a set of special competencies!

This evening will be packed with stories and workshops by recruiters and career coaches who will tell you all about their own experience with humanities. They’ll give you a sneak peek into their organisation and help you further discover, understand and profile your added value. Alumni will tell you about the path they’ve taken and how their educational background has helped them along the way. And finally, there will be a market where these alumni, recruiters and organisations are ready and waiting for you to have a one on one chat. After this evening you will not only have a better understanding of your added value as a humanities scholar, but you will also be able to better explain this to others!

Previous editions
