Canvas page ‘Your Employability and Wellbeing’

In the Canvas course 'Your Employability & Wellbeing', you can find the complete offer of both UM Career Services and UM Student Wellbeing. Here you can find all online modules, an overview of our group offer, the individual services and a list of recommended online tools.

Employability Portal

On the Employability Portal, a tab in the UM Student Portal, students can find a broad range of opportunities to improve their employability skills. These include the best vacancy search engines, interesting internet tools and upcoming (networking) events of both internal and external parties. The Employability Portal is only visible for students.

Workshops, lectures and training courses

By participating in lectures, workshops and training courses, students get the chance to develop themselves personally and professionally. All lectures, workshops and training courses are taught in English and/or Dutch and currently take place either online or on campus. Maastricht University alumni can participate until six months after graduation.

Personal support

Individual support

UM Career Services offers a wide range of individual support services that may be helpful in answering questions about study choices and career prospects. In a Quick Career Advice or during the Walk-in hours, students may already find answers regarding their CV, application letter or LinkedIn profile. It’s also possible to make a follow-up appointment with a career counsellor to obtain personal advice regarding their study and career choices. If needed, UM Career Services refers to other support services such as UM Psychologists, UM Student Deans, study advisers and the International Student Helpdesk.

Alumni Coach Café

Alumni Coach Café

An informal and inspiring evening get-together where young alumni and master students sit down in groups of three to exchange ideas about making the next move in their careers. Guided by a supervisor, the students share their dreams, explore their talents and find out what their options are.

“Participants don’t go home with a job, but hopefully with new insights. Often people are trapped in a certain mindset and your role is to set them free.”
