The BASIS Career Committee connects current students, the business community, and Leiden University alumni.
We are concerned with developing your professional skills and engagement with local and international organizations or business. Ultimately, this allows you to get in touch with potential employers and to start building your professional network while you study.
The Career Committee also maintains an internship database and a calendar with events that help you advance your career.
New to our portfolio is a local business network to place International Students with paying part-time job during their studies.
The Career Hub is our initiative to connect students, local business and international organisations. Through the Career Hub we establish a network of collaboration and share information, within and outside of the University of Leiden.
Are you interested in placing your vacancy on our platform or would you like to work together on an event or campaign? The Career Committee is always looking to expand its activities and partner with groups in- or outside of the Leiden University system!
Please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our portfolio ranges from networking opportunities while dining or borrel-ing, to business visits and skills workshops.
