About us
"A career event organized by students for students."

ABOUT US
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 five study areas:

- Global Management of Social Issues
- Human Resource Studies
- Organization Studies
- Psychology
- Sociology

The SCT aims to bring the 4500 students of TSB closer to the labor market and present the opportunity to meet future employers. The purpose of the SCT is therefore two-fold: on the one hand it offers students the opportunity to broaden their future perspective and to orientate themselves in the labor market, whilst it also brings the organizations in closer contact with prospective employees.

The SCT was established in 2015 under the name of Sociale Bedrijven Dagen (SBD), and was changed in 2018 to the 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's edition of the event takes place on the 19th, 20th and 21st of April 2022!

Henriëtte Kerckhaert

Supporting role

Hi! My name is Henriette Kerckhaert and I am currently a third-year GMSI bachelor's student. Being in my third year I am very interested in career orientation, thus when this position became available I was immediately interested in it. This function is great because it allows me to help where I can so that I get a taste of a bit of everything and can learn about the behind the scenes of such an event. I am learning a lot and really enjoying it. I am looking forward a lot to our event and hope to see you all there!

Emma-Rose Hupkens

Head of Promotion

Hi! My name is Emma-Rose Hupkens. I am 20 years old and currently in my second-year of the bachelor Human Resource Studies. Last year, due to COVID-19 I had little contact with my fellow students. I realized that I wanted to be more involved in the university and get to know my fellow students better. I think that broadening my network is really important for future opportunities, and I am glad we can create network opportunities for all the TSB students during our event. This way they broaden their picture of what would be a good fit for them and bridge the gap between them and their future employers. I am looking forward to see you at our SCT event!

Jaap Braaksma

Chairman

Hi! My name is Jaap Braaksma and I'm currently a master student of Accountancy, which means I am currently a student of TiSEM. However I will rejoin the TSB next academic year to start the master Organization Studies. This is already my second boardyear with the Social Sciences Career Event. In the academic year 2020/2021 I have fulfilled the function of External Affairs Officer. It was a hectic year for everyone, also for the SCT, it resulted in a three-day online event. So when halfway the year the function of chairman became available due to unforeseen circumstances, I didn't hesitate second. I am delighted to be a part of this great board, I can't wait for my first offline Social Sciences Career Event!

Joost van Altena

Supporting role

Hi! My name is Joost van Altena and I'm currently in my third, and hopefully last, year of Organisatiewetenschappen (Organizational Sciences). This year I have a supporting role of this beautiful event. The reason joined the board of the SCT this year is because I wanted to gain more experience in leadership, but also challenge myself next to my bachelor's program, and I think SCT will be the perfect solution for that. Besides, I'm a very social and talkative person, thus I love to be in contact with different people and different organizations. I think SCT can bring me into contact with beautiful people and organizations!

I'm looking forward to organizing this year's event together with our board and to provide the students of the faculty of the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences with a very meaningful experience while getting into contact with their possible future employers. I hope to see you on the 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd of April!

Leonie de Ruiter

Secretary and Treasurer

Hi! My name is Leonie de Ruiter, I am 20 years old and currently a second-year bachelor student of Personeelwetenschappen. Besides that, I am an active student within a student association. I decided to apply for the SCT board to challenge myself and to develop both my personal and professional skills. Last year, I was not a very active student and that made me realize that I wanted to do something challenging during my years as a student. I understand how important broadening your network is as a student and young professional, and I am glad that we can create this opportunity for all TSB students. I am looking forward to a great year with my board and a beautiful edition of the SCT.

I hope to see you all in April 2022!

My-Y Trình

External Affairs

Hi everyone! I am My-Y Trình and I will be one of the External Affairs Officers for this year’s SCT. As a fourth year student with a major of Social Sciences within Liberal Arts & Sciences, I am not actually in TSB, but that does not stop me from joining this board! Luckily I got selected, so I am able to take on this opportunity next to my internship to really boost my CV and LinkedIn before stepping into the real working field. Gaining first hand experience in a board is definitely different compared to being part of a committee, which I have done previously. So I would recommend partaking in something that you have no experience in. Therefore, I am definitely enthusiastic about organizing this year’s edition of SCT.

So, I hope to see you there! ;)

‍Lotte Seuren

External Affairs

Hi there! My name is Lotte Seuren, I am 21 years old and currently a second-year bachelor student of Personeelwetenschappen (Human Resource Studies). I am involved in Study Association INPUT and was a member of two committees last year, one of them being the Career Committee. Since I enjoyed that, I thought of joining the SCT to improve my professional and personal skills even further. Two years ago, I did a board year at my previous study. Therefore I knew what to expect and wanted to build a professional network in Tilburg by joining the SCT. I applied for the function External Affairs Officer at SCT. Luckily the function has been assigned to me, together with being the Vice-President.

I am looking forward to helping bridge the gap between TSB students and their future employers through the SCT! Together with my fellow board members we strive to organise an inspiring event for all TSB students. Will we see you in April?
