Degree to Trainee

Are you interested in working as a trainee?

*Fluency in Dutch is required to participate in this event.

The Degree to Trainee tour is a relatively new event of the EBF, initiated in the summer of 2017. With the rising demand for new talent, big companies around the world are launching new traineeship programs for recently graduated students. The aim of these traineeships is to train the leaders of tomorrow. As a trainee you get the opportunity to experience what it is like to work at different departments within a company, while you get guided by a more experienced colleague or manager.  Are you interested in how working as a trainee looks like within different industries and are you a 3rd year or a (pre-) master student? Then do not hesitate and apply for the second edition of Degree to Trainee! The event will take place at the 21st and 22nd of February 2019.

During this two-day event, 25 CV-selected students will visit four multinational enterprises to learn everything about the traineeships’ of these companies. The students will solve cases and participate in workshops to experience what it is like to work as a real trainee. Besides this formal part, there will also be a more informal part where students/business get the opportunity to meet their potential new employer/employee during business lunches and dinners.

If you get selected for the event, you and 24 other students will visit the four companies which are part of the event. All the companies will be located in the Randstad (Amsterdam and surroundings). Therefore, you will also spend the night at a hotel in Amsterdam/Utrecht. The costs for the hotel is covered by the organisation, as well as the transportation costs you will have to make. Hence, the event will be free of charge for all participants!
