The Social Sciences Career Event (SCT) is a career event organized by students from Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences (TSB) of Tilburg University.
The TSB faculty is second biggest division at Tilburg University and includes four study areas:
- Organization Studies
- Human Resource Studies
The SCT aims to bring the 4113 students of TSB closer to the labor market and present the opportunity to meet future employers. The purpose of the SCT is therefore dual: on one hand, it offers students the opportunity to broaden their future perspective and to orientate themselves in the labor market, while at the same time it also brings the organizations in contact with prospective employees.
The SCT was established in 2015 under the name of Sociale Bedrijven Dagen (SBD), and later in 2018 was changed to Social Sciences Career Event (SCT) in order to provide a more precise description of the event and make the event more accessible for the growing number of international students at Tilburg University.
This year the events takes place on the 12th and 13th of May 2020 at Tilburg University.

Hi! My name is Janneke Pladet, I am 20 years old and currently in my third year of the bachelor Organization Studies. Besides my study I am also an active member at study association POLIS. Last year I fulfilled a Public Relations-function within the Career Committee and I found out that I really liked the intention behind (organizing) career-oriented events; giving students perspective into their potential future and giving opportunities to let unanswered questions be (partly) answered. That’s why I decided to apply for SCT, it also seemed like a very nice challenge! This year I will be fulfilling the functions of Secretary and Treasurer, about which I am very excited; I think it will be a nice learning experience and I am sure that we will set up great career-days. I hope that you all are as excited as we are and that we will see you at SCT 2020!
