What can I do after studying International Relations and International Organisation? What are my possibilities? Everyone has encountered such questions at least once during their studies or while choosing IRIO as study program, and there is no simple answer to it: IRIO offers a broad spectrum of future job opportunities. Thanks to the Career Committee, students of IRIO have the chance to take a deeper look into this broad working field and get an idea of the options they have after studying. By organizing different events throughout the year, such as network drinks, company visits and a Career Day, the Career Committee brings students closer to possible employers, careers and former IR students.
The committee organises two company visits, one in the Netherlands and one abroad. During these events we will visit different companies and institutions which are related to our study. Previous company visits include Amsterdam and Frankfurt.
Furthermore, the Career Committee will for the first time organise a Career Day. This will be an opportunity for students to her about interesting job perspectives from experts themselves. A broad array of workshops will be offered, such as how to improve your CV and how to make most out of your Linked-In account.
Last but not least, the Committee is also responsible for the Internship database, a database offering several interesting internships for IR students at different institutions and companies.
Career Committee positions: Chair, Secretary, Treasurer/Acquisition, Commissioner Corporate Relations (2x), Location& logistics, Commissioner Linked-In & Internship Database, PR and Board Representative.
