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 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, 21st and 22nd of April 2022!
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 will be the chairman of this beautiful event. The reason I will be filling in the chair function of 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!
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!
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! ;)
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?
