An interactive meetup that provides you with everything you need to know to get on your way to work in Belgium with ease and confidence

Navigating the Belgian job market can be a daunting task. From how to write a great CV to the languages you need to speak, launching your career in a new country can be overwhelming - and almost like a full-time job in itself. But it doesn't have to be this way.

The Way2Work meetups are where you'll get all the answers to your career-related questions and more. Facilitated in English by the International House Leuven and Stad Leuven, and hosted by Isabelle & Marjolein from SkillbuilderS, this informal get together will provide you a clear path and concrete guidance to (re)launch your career in Belgium with ease and confidence.

This meeting's topic: Cultural differences

We'd love to welcome you at our open conversation about cultural differences. We are curious to hear what you find remarkable here in Flanders, what's different to your previous country or area. What stays the same? What do you need clarified about Belgian work culture? The more nationalities we can bring together, the more interesting it will be. Of course we prefer talking about habits related to the working environment.

Feel free to send us any questions/subjects when subscribing via the form (see below). 

What you'll get:

  • Guided dialogues to answer those frequently asked questions about finding a job in Belgium
  • Special career-themed presentation to support your career development journey
  • Connect with like-minded international talent that shares job-related experiences such as yours
  • This combination of information, learning, and networking will empower you with the right tools to enhance your professional development journey and achieve your ultimate career objectives.

You are welcome to join this informal event free of charge, but for practical reasons we kindly ask that you register first (although walk-ins are very welcome too!).

The next step in your career is one click away...
