Why NCE?

During the weeks in which the Why NCE takes place, students can attend events like workshops, cv-checks, presentations and promotion activities where we hand out food. In these weeks we are getting ready for the Nijmegen Career Event. After the kick off, the enrolment for the Nijmegen Career event will open. In this way, students can get warmed up for the event.  

This year's theme is Invest, Impress & Inspire. Students invest in themselves to reach their own goals. This often takes time, effort and a good portion of discipline. In order to be who you want to be in the future, perseverance is key. The difficulty lies in perpetually improving yourself, even after you have achieved your goals. Setting new targets ensures that you are not standing still, but allows you to move forward.

The next step then is to impress others. You show them what your capabilities are, in order for them to be able to learn from you. It is of vital importance to voice your thoughts and to take initiatives. Make sure that you are an example to others, so that they, on their turn, can make a positive contribution!

This is only possible when people are not just impressed, but when they have been inspired by your acting. They do not only recognize your positive impulse, but they also start to act to it. You have become a beacon of inspiration and together with others a lot can be achieved!

                                 “Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement.

                                                                                   - Brian Tracy

Workshop: EY - Social Styles

October 2nd, 2019 (from 12:30 until 13:30 )


It is very recognizable, some people immediately seem to be on the same page and with others it seems to take a little longer. Or even worse: it always remains difficult. The better we know how to get on the same page, the more (and faster) we experience mutual trust. This results in a long-term nice collaboration in teams or between two individuals.

At EY we apply this principle daily in our Highest Performing Teams. We first create trust before we start working as a team. We hope to see you at the workshop!
