The challenge

The Nyenrode Career & Personal Development (CPD) team plays an important role in the development and growth of our students, working closely with all students of the full- and part-time MBA, MSc in Management and BSc in Business Administration programs on an individual basis and in a variety of mandatory CPD courses. In alignment with Nyenrode’s personal approach, we strive to focus on students’ personal development questions on a more individual basis. Together with students, we work on their personal and career development challenges, to help them understand their strengths and define and articulate their ambitions. We guide students in their job search and in outlining their further career steps after graduation. The department also provides support, expertise, and guidance to Nyenrode alumni. CPD is key in linking students and alumni to the (international) corporate community. Although some structure is needed in each role, CPD provides you the freedom to co-create your own role and develop yourself within a small team.

As Coordinator, Career & Personal Development, you enjoy interaction with current and former students and provide career advice and support, such as providing feedback on CVs and cover letters. Maintenance and continuous improvement of CPD resources and tools, for instance the LinkedIn groups and Nyenrode career platform that are key to our students’ development, will be a key responsibility. Working together with the CPD advisors, you support events such as student-alumni networking sessions and the annual Nyenrode Career Event, some of which may take place on evenings and/or weekends. With the CPD advisors, you are a first point of contact for organizations wishing to reach out to students, and you support the communication between CPD and the corporate community and co-coordinate job postings and content for other publications of CPD materials. The CPD team works with students across different programs, and a role of the Coordinator is to remain in regular contact with diverse groups of colleagues across the university.
