Techniek op Hakken

In 2016 heb ik deelgenomen aan Techniek op Hakken, en nader kennis gemaakt met de werkwijze, cultuur en verschillen tussen onder andere KPN, PwC, Bol.com en het Ministerie van Defensie. Het was een dag waarop ik veel meer inzicht kreeg in wat ik technische bedrijven kan bieden (en andersom) en waar ik mijn netwerk verder heb uitgebreid met recruiters en mede studenten.  Het is een ervaring die mij zeker heeft geholpen met keuzes maken voor de eerste stappen in mijn carrière, maar waar ik ook heb kunnen genieten van een leuke consultancy case en goed gezelschap!

Techniek op Hakken

Techniek op Hakken 2012 was voor mij erg waardevol. Een leuke dag vol inspirerende sprekers, praktische cases en leuke speeddates: precies waar ik naar op zoek was. Op deze dag heb ik kennisgemaakt met bedrijven waarvan ik niet eens wist dat ze bestonden en heb ik geleerd dat het goed is om nog eens verder te kijken dan normaal. Voor mij was de dag nog puur om me te oriënteren maar ben ik toch een stuk bekender geworden in de technische werkwereld.
