Business Orientation Days | Activities
This page offers you more information on the different activities we offer at the BOD. To see which companies participate in which activities, take a look at the program.
Presentations are the best to orientate yourself as a student! During the presentation, company employees will shed some light on the company’s activities and career opportunities. There will be enough time to ask your questions. There is no CV selection for presentations, but there are limited spots available (first come, first serve).
A workshop is the perfect way to get to know a company in an interactive manner, together with other selected students. Most of the workshops contain a case, which gives you an impression of the work you could do at the company. All workshops take 2.5 hours. Specific information on all the cases can be found on each company profile.
Almost ready to start your career? Do you want to get in contact with a company on a highly personal level? Then an individual meeting is the best way to explore your potential career opportunities at the specific company. In a meeting of 20 minutes, you have the opportunity to get to know each other.
Do you want to learn how to make the perfect cappuccino or latte and meet employees of the company of your interest? Then a barista workshop is the activity for you. You get the chance to get to know more about the company through a short presentation, whereafter you can speak to employees while learning to make the perfect cup of coffee. A great way to start your morning.
You have the opportunity to enjoy a fully catered lunch at KIT and be in touch with some employees of the company of your interest. Besides a good meal, a lunch offers you the time to get to know each other in a relaxed setting.
After a whole day of workshops, presentations and individual meetings a dinner completes your day. In an informal setting, you can ask the company all the questions you (still) have. All dinners take place in special locations in Amsterdam arranged by the companies themselves. Therefore, this is the perfect way to end your day at the BOD.
The masterclasses prepare you for the application process. For almost all internships, starters positions, and traineeships a cognitive capacity test is needed. The masterclasses prepare you for the application process you most likely need to do.
