Get involved

Network Committee

The Network Committee is one of the newest committees of the ESN Groningen. The focus of our events differs from the events of other committees. Our events are of course also a lot of fun, however, we also provide you with opportunities to connect with important companies and improve your networking skills.

 We organize events that are related to your future career and increase your chances of getting internships and jobs. Through our events, you get the chance to improve your presentation, interview, and network skills. We cooperate with important companies in the Netherlands and give you the chance to connect with them.

 Especially for international students, our events create the perfect opportunity to get to know the various companies located in the Netherlands. As internationals, it is often harder to find a job in the Netherlands and specifically in Groningen. The Dutch way of interviewing people for jobs and internships be different from the way career-related things are handled in your home country. Therefore, we provide you with information about how to contact Dutch companies and how to increase your chances of getting a job.

 The Network Committee 18/19 consists of 6 members: Janina, Oliver, Claudette, Adam, Floor, and Hannah.

 Janina is the president of our committee. She is a Master student in IB&M and originally from Germany. Oliver is currently doing a Pre-Master in IB&M and occupies the position of the evaluator. He is also German, and guess what: Janina and he are our committee couple. Both are great cooks and always provide us with delicious dinners.

Claudette is the youngest in our committee and already raised to the position of the ESN Network Committee secretary. She just started her Bachelor in Liberal Arts and Science and was born and raised in Groningen.

Adam is our treasurer and is in his second year of his IB bachelor. Where he is from? Well, that’s a longer story, but in short: born in England, grew up in Qatar, lived for some years in India and Spain and nowhere. He looks young but, as his fellow members recently got to know, has more volunteering and work experience than most people of his age.

Floor joined our committee a bit later, but we cannot imagine it without her anymore. She is our activity coordinator and from the Netherlands. Currently, she is doing her Bachelor in IB&M. Fun fact about her: She can use her feet like hands!

Finally, our PR-manager of the committee is Hannah. Well, what to say about her… she is a blond, German Psychology in her last year and does also a Pre-Master in Marketing. So in a few words: a stereotypical German student in Groningen.


We hope to see you at our events!

Your Network Committee,

Janina, Claudette, Floor, Oliver, Adam, and Hannah
