About Us

Our Mission

2 years ago, we started with a brand new concept called VTK Career & Development based on two important pilars, career and development. Through various events and services, we provide an informal but professional setting for graduating students to meet your company. We help the students find their future career and provide you with the perfect match for you company at the same time. However, we don't stop at an application, we also provide our students with development courses, focusing on soft skills. Consequently, you not only get technically, but also socially skilled engineers!

We build the bridge between your company and graduating engineering students!

Our Strategy

Let them meet you

Is your company hiring new engineers? The first step is presenting yourself to the students, let them meet you. Our events in the first semester are perfect to do this in an informal manner. Furthermore, it is the perfect moment to get to know the person behind the resume.

Get them to apply

The journey does not stop at the introduction. It is also important to provide the students with the necessary information to apply. To enable you to reach the students you search, we provide various fairs.

Let them flourish

In our modern society, an engineer is more than someone with technical knowledge. These days, great social and soft skills are indispensable. We, therefore, offer several sessions to enhance these skills. This to ensure that we provide you with not only technically great but also socially skilled engineers.
