Testimonial Recruitment Days

My name is Tess Elleswijk and I was part of the Recruitment Days Board 2021, as Vice Chairman/Commercial Relations. 

When attending the Recruitment Days in the past three years I have always been intrigued by the event. It allowed me to realize the large variety of companies and directions one can go in the future. As a student I really appreciated the Recruitment Days event and its goal to help students orientate and get in contact with various companies. I soon realized that organizing an event of this scale would be very exciting, challenging and something I would love to do.

I decided to apply for the position Vice Chairman/Commercial Relations 1, this is the position I got. I was responsible for acquiring companies to participate in the event and I was the main point of contact before, during and after the event. I kept close contact with the various companies and had video/phone calls every week. This is something I really enjoyed, as I had direct contact with various companies and their recruiters. At first, this felt a little unfamiliar to me, but I soon started to enjoy it very much.

I can without a doubt say that applying for the Recruitment Days Board has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I learned a lot, developed new skills, and grew as a person. In addition to the professional and personal skills I developed throughout the year, I have met a lot of new people and my fellow board members have become one of my best friends.

We participated in many activities organized by EBF and MARUG. We joined the active members weekend, a lot of socials and planned on going on holiday together. I highly recommend you apply for the Recruitment Days Board 2022. If you have any questions or would like to go for a chat, feel free to contact me!
