Do you already have your LinkedIn and CV in order? Do you already know how to prepare for interviews? You are about to do an internship, or the end of your studies is near, and you are almost entering the labor market? During this workshop we will give you tips for preparing for job interviews. Tata Steel recruiters see many CVs and motivation letters and have many such conversations every day; this is your chance to hear from them, what they pay attention to, and how you can make sure you present yourself well. 



Wednesday 17.02:


18:00-19:15: (Lecture) When the going gets tough... by Major R.C. Streefkerk (RNLAF)


Briefing about the Major's field of work and, in a more general perspective, his perception of the key strong points an engineer has with which he/she can contribute to various challenges. Furthermore, the Major will brief the audience about what the Royal Netherlands Air Force has to offer to any young professional who is at the starting or turning point in his/her career and to touch on some of the misconceptions that surround the RNLAF's line of work. 


19:30-20:45: (Lecture) MQ-9 Reaper by Lieutenant-Colonel B.A. Roddenhof (RNLAF, 306 Squadron)


Lieutenant-Colonel Roddenhof started his career with the Royal Netherlands air Force in 1993. After completing his flight training, he flew light utility helicopters and was deployed to Bosnia, Albania and Kosovo in the late 90's. In 2003 he was trained on the AH-64D Apache, with which he was operationally deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. After a tour at the Ministry of Defense in The Hague, he joined the project team for the introduction of the MQ-9 Reaper in 2013. In 2017 he completed his Master of Strategic Studies at the Air War College in the United States and was subsequently posted at Leeuwarden Airbase as the Commander of the 306th Squadron, which will operate the MQ-9 Reaper in the near future.

18:00-19:15: (Lecture) Covid 19: After the storm, there is sunlight. How to steer through the storm? by Maurice Taks (WFS PRO)

Let me take you on a journey to discuss the current impact on the industry and careers of young aerospace engineers. Let’s plot a route out of the storm, because a storm mostly means damage but also opportunities when the storm has passed.
