AUDIENCE – Are you:

  • Looking to enter the Belgian job market after a break or relocation?
  • Wondering where to start and how to move forward?
  • Searching to answer the question “what am I good at and what do I want to do”?
  • Wanting to improve your CV, motivation letter and personal sales pitch?


APPROACH – During the training the focus will be on:

  • Group coaching
  • Interaction between the participants and the trainer
  • Practical tips & tricks
  • Tools to facilitate the networking process
  • Exercises & exchange of experiences



  • Hands-on tools for the job search
  • Focus on what you have to offer and how to sell it
  • Updated application documents
  • Road map and action points to kick off your career!


  • Express interest by filling out and following the directions on this online form. Group interaction is key, so only 12 places are available.
  • If we have too many applicants a short intake will be done over the phone/Skype beforehand.
  • Participation is free. International House Leuven offers the trainers, course material and organisation but in return we ask commitment and active participation. Past experience has forced us however to instate a formal no-show policy. A no-show fee of 40 € will apply for every half-day session missed without valid reason (own illness or of a family member; with doctor’s certificate).
  • This event is made possible by the partner organisation International House Leuven, they take care of the organisation and registration of data/interested participants.
    the location of the career program is International House Leuven, Tiensevest , 3000 Leuven (nearby the train station “Leuven”)
