Without question you possess valuable talents, but it is another thing to make these talents visible! Students gain a lot of valuable experience that could prove priceless on both the academic and nonacademic labor market.

You are what you show in the way you perform your assignments. It will be worth your while to think of yourself as a brand. What is it that makes you stand out to anyone else who may possess the same formal qualifications as you have? In this particular workshop you will discover how you can distinguish yourself in your work or in job applications.

A participant of this workshop at the national PhD-day in 2015: I found my talent in a workshop on personal branding. I knew beforehand that this would deem interesting as people were standing in the back in order to follow the workshop and it indeed proved to be fun.
