Way2Work

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 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.

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.

Meet-up on Monday 27 June 2022: 13:00-16:00

Theme: The Belgian Job Market - the specifics & what employers expect

At this session we talk about the Belgian Job Market. We will talk about what you want to know, but also what you have to know when searching for new opportunities, such as:

• which professions are flourishing in the region?

• Where to begin when looking for vacancies in your professional sector?

• Who will be your competition when applying for your target job(s)?

• Which strengths can you put to your advantage when applying?

• What about internships or temping?

You are welcome to join this informal get together, free of charge, but for practical reasons we kindly ask that register first. 

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