As an alumnus you are an important ambassador for Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. That’s because with your network, knowledge and experience you can help not only the university but also other alumni and students. By finding a work placement or a job, for instance. Conversely, you can also benefit from the VU alumni network if you are considering a new career move. After all, good references or contacts are hugely important when making a job application or looking for a new job.
What can I do?
Perhaps the company where you work can offer work placements and job vacancies. By sharing these with us you can help students and other VU alumni. Or maybe you have your own ideas? We’ll be happy to discuss the possibilities with you. Contact the Alumni Relations department at email@example.com.
What’s in it for me?
By actively supporting your degree programme or Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you come into contact with current or former lecturers and other professionals in your specialist field. This helps you expand your professional (and personal) network and you keep abreast of the latest developments in your field. The university regularly organizes a range of alumni activities on the campus to bring together students, lecturers and alumni.
