Leo de Wolf

Alumni dreams #90

Leo de Wolf finished his Bachelor International Studies and is doing a 6 month internship at the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines in the Direct Sales and E-commerce department. Working for the KLM has been a lifelong dream of his and this year it became a reality!

After this internship he will move to Boston to pursue his Master’s degree in International Business at Hult International Business School! Having specialized in North America during his BA really made him curious and excited about living and studying in the United States.

After all he says, International Studies has provided him with the right set of tools in order to take off to the next part of his life. While every course had its own value, PRINS in specific was a unique experience for him!

Here is Leo during his consultancy power pitch! 

Julia van de Ven

Alumni dreams #152

After graduating Julia van de Ven first wanted to do a business traineeship as the idea of working and learning at the same time was really appealing. But then she began to realize she was more interested in the jobs of the recruiters she spoke to rather than the jobs she was applying for. So Julia applied for a job as an IT-recruiter at YoungCapital Professionals B.V.!

As an IT-recruiter it is her responsibility to recruit trainees who want to develop as an IT-professional by means of an IT-traineeship. Tasks include of course searching for the right candidates, but also assessing their capabilities and presentations throughout the strict selection procedure. Julia really enjoys her work, as she is able to really help young people kickstart their career!

What she really appreciates about her BA is that it has made her able to approach matters from many different perspectives. In general, the courses have equipped her with a broad spectrum of basic knowledge to further draw upon throughout her career.

Well done Julia enjoy your (work) life! Here she is in the typically relaxed workplace of Young Capital looking for candidates for a new project!
