Inhouseday at EVG Start

March 7th, 2018
EVG Start, Amsterdam

Unfortunately, this activity is for Dutch speaking students only. Inhousedag 7 Maart 2018 Weet jij al wat je later wil worden? Sommige mensen weten al van jongs af aan wat ze later willen worden. Astronaut, chirurg, juf op school. Maar met sommige beroepen is het moeilijk je voor te stellen wat zo iemand doet. ICT manager is zo’n beroep. En dat terwijl het een van de meest geweldige beroepen ter wereld is. Vinden wij. Om zo veel mogelijk mensen kennis te laten maken met dit geweldige vak organiseren wij elk half jaar een Start Café. Hier komen afstuderenden en pas afgestudeerden naar toe om te ervaren hoe het is om ICT manager te zijn. Op 7 maart 2018  organiseren we weer een Inhousedag : ons Start Café. Deze keer doen we dit weer in de vorm van een Inhousedag op ons kantoor in Amsterdam. Tijdens deze dag kom je erachter waar EVG Start voor staat en wat je kan verwachten van ons traineeship. En wie weet kom je er zelfs achter wat je later wil worden! Na de game is er tijd om onder het genot van een pizza en een drankje na te praten met een aantal van onze Trainees. Wie zijn wij? EVG Start selecteert, begeleidt en ontwikkelt toptalent tot de ICT Manager van morgen. Dat vak vinden wij namelijk het mooiste vak dat er is. En wij vinden dat jong talent belangrijk is voor het succes van organisaties. Talent inspireert, verfrist en maakt het verschil. Het EVG Start Traineeship is speciaal ontwikkeld voor pas afgestudeerde hbo’ers en academici. Talenten dus. Het duurt 2 jaar en zit vol met de kennis en ervaring van onze experts, onze trainees en onze klanten. Uniek is dat je bij ons geen ICT vooropleiding nodig hebt, iedereen direct een persoonlijke coach krijgt en je de volle 2 jaar bij één opdrachtgever werkt. Zo ontwikkelen we je van toptalent tot ICT Manager van morgen. En wie ben jij? Oké, dus EVG Start ontwikkelt toptalenten tot de ICT Manager van morgen. Maar ben jij het toptalent dat wij zoeken? Ben je ambitieus en beschik je over een gezond verstand? Heb je affiniteit met techniek maar ben je geen techneut? En ben jij een tikkeltje eigenwijs? Ja? Mooi, want dan zijn we op zoek naar jou! Wil je nog meer weten? Heb je in de tussentijd vragen? Neem dan contact op met Jetske Hoyng-Ruiter van onze recruitment afdeling (06-15424445; of bekijk eens de profielen van onze trainees. Inschrijven Enthousiast geworden? Schrijf je dan snel in! Dit kan via de website van EVG Start .
