The Bedrijvendagen are here! That’s the message we’ll be broadcasting to all students during the Opening Week. As there won’t be any contact with the companies yet, the main focus will be on kicking off this year’s event. This will be done through multiple fantastic events, like the Kick-off, a lunch lecture and more! We’ll also be happy to provide the possibility to register for all the activities and some very exclusive gadgets.
The Kick-Off marks the start of the Bedrijvendagen Twente! The Kick-Off is a two days event on the O&O square at the University of Twente. While enjoying a large variety of free snacks, you can take a look at the program of the upcoming event. When you see workshops or activities from companies which are in line with your interests and ambitions, you can sign-up for these activities in the registration tent. If you have any questions, there are Activists to help you out. The Kick-Off will be a two days event, so don't be bummed if you can't come by on Monday!
When: Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th of February

The search for a career that suits you starts with yourself! What type of person are you? How do you place yourself in a group? To find the answer to these questions, you can visit the Talent Room during the Kick-Off. In the Talent Room, two groups of 6 students will be locked up and challenged in a race against the clock and each other. The teams try to escape as quickly as possible by doing puzzles and games. Afterward, you will receive feedback from an expert on your personal qualities and groups attitude. Are you up for the challenge? Come and find out during the Kick-Off!
When: Monday the 4th and Tuesday the 5th of February
