On the 18th of April, in collaboration with Rotterdam Partners, we are organizing the third edition of our popular Talent Nights. This time the theme is Career: Mobility & Hacking.

Nowadays people tend to change many jobs or even careers during their lifetime. The average worker stays at their job for 4.6 years, and some research states that millennials change jobs twice during that time. Career hacking is becoming a skill that people need to develop. On the other hand, companies have to make sure that they provide enough opportunities for talent to stay within the organization. We have invited various speakers to showcase their vision on the above-mentioned challenges.

During the evening you can expect:
1. Keynote speaker
2. Career advise
3. Connections with talented people
4. Dynamic workshops to improve your application skills
& much more!

Join this special Thursday Gathering to connect with the innovation community, get inspired and receive the right tools to kick-off or take the next step in your career!
