About Student Career Services

About us

Student Career Services Wageningen University & Research is a new initiative and it provides a platform for students and organisations. Our goal is to prepare the students for the transition from education towards the labour market to the max, and to give employers an entrance to find the best new employees for their business.

We have excellent students in the domain of society and well-being, food, feed and biobased production, natural resources and living environment. Graduates of Wageningen University distinguish themselves through their knowledge combined with a practical approach, good language skills and organisational talent.

The Student Career Services functions as an umbrella organisation where students can find information about the career activities that are offered on Campus, by associations and organisations affiliated with Wageningen University & Research. We will provide information about the steps to take to find a job, a traineeship or an internship. And we will provide labour market information. To achieve this we work together with the University Fund Wageningen, our study associations and other associations and institutes in the field of career services.

The Student Career Services team also gives advice and support in organizing activities to connect students and organisations. After all, we want our students to find the best job and organisation that matches their talents and wishes and we want organisations to have talented persons to build their human capital.
