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
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 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 edition the event takes place online on the 19th, 20th and 21st of April 2021.
Hello! My name is Viktoria Ilieva, I am 22 years old from Bulgaria. Currently I am doing my Master’s degree in Work and Organizational Psychology. This year I have the opportunity to be the Chairwoman of the board of the SCT, which is a great challenge and experience, especially in the circumstances we are going through globally. I decided to apply for the board, because I am a sociable and communicative person, who always reaches for new opportunities. Being able to get in touch with different companies and people via the SCT, was hence the best scenario for me.
I am looking forward to organizing this year’s event together with the board and also to provide an insightful experience for the students of the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences. I hope to see you at the SCT event on April 19, 20 and 21 2021!
Hi! My name is Chaïra Verhoog, I am 21 years old and currently a second-year bachelor student of Personeelwetenschappen. Besides that, I am an active student within both a student association and Study Association INPUT. To challenge myself, I decided to apply for the SCT board and develop both my personal and professional skills. Since I have experienced how important it is to get in contact with companies and create a professional network, 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 on the 19th, 20th and 21st of April 2021!
Hey! My name is Susan Schoenmakers, I am 22 years old and doing my Master’s Degree in Global Management of Social Issues: Politics, Policy and Societal Development. Besides being in the board of the SCT, I am a committee member of Student Party SAM. Since I wanted to improve my professional and personal skills, I applied for a position within the board of the SCT. After finishing my bachelor, I felt insecure about my near future and where I wanted to work. I do not want anyone to experience the same feelings I had. Therefore, I want to connect students to the work field. This year I will be fulfilling the role of Head of Promotion. I am excited to organize a successful career event with my fellow board members, where both students and representatives of companies can bring out the best in each other. Hope to see you at the SCT in April 2021!
Hi! My name is Jaap Braaksma and I am 19 years old. I am currently a third-year bachelor student of Organization Studies and an active member of the Study Association POLIS. Last year I decided I wanted to do something challenging next to my study. A challenge in which I could work on a tangible end product in a group of fellow ambitious students. Because a university provides you with a lot of theory, but you do not bring it to practice that much. Therefore, I decided to apply for the External Affairs function of the SCT. This year I hope to develop some new communicational – and acquisitional skills, and above all, have a lot of fun! I am really looking forward to organizing the best possible career event for both the TSB students as for the companies. I hope to see you all in April, 2021!
Hello! My name is Michelle Tran and I am 22 years old. I am currently double-majoring in the Masters Human Resource Studies and Labour Law and Employment Relations. Besides being part of the SCT, I am also an active member of Study Association INPUT. Last year I went on a study exchange to South-Korea and got the chance to travel around in different countries in Asia, where I gained a lot of international experiences. This year I went to various (online) career events, and I really enjoyed it. That made me realize that broadening your network, as well as getting in contact with companies, is very important as a student or young professional. Therefore, I wanted to become the link between companies and students, and hence I applied for the External Affairs position at the SCT. I hope to develop my acquisition skills during this board year and broaden my network as well. With the rest of the board, I would like to invite you to our next career event for TSB in April, 2021!
Hi everyone! My name is Milou Vaes, I am 20 years old and I am in my third year of the bachelor Organization Studies. After having organized two career-related events as chairman of POLIS’ Career Committee last year, I decided I wanted to take things one step (or a few steps) further. Therefore, I decided to apply for the function of External Affairs Officer at the SCT. Luckily this opportunity has been given to me, together with my fellow EA’s Michelle and Jaap. I think this year will be a great learning experience for me, and that it will help me develop professionally. I am looking forward to helping bridge the gap between TSB students and their future employers through the SCT! Will we see you in April?
