If you want to make a living through your passion, come along to the Starterscafé! Every week, we take a deep dive into the do’s and don’ts of doing business. That means bookkeeping, setting your rates, applying for funding, taxes, building your portfolio and raising your profile. At the AHK Starterscafé we’ll show the right way – the smart way – to get off to a flying start. It’s free for currents students and recent graduates! Want to join us?
The AHK Starterscafé is a pop-up café in AHK Culture Club, full of extra-curricular workshops. Grab a drink at the bar and get to know current and former students who – just like you- want to live from their creativity. At 7pm an inspiring teacher will start sharing all the tricks of the trade. Monday in English, Tuesday in Dutch. The agenda items below tell you what is going on the upcoming months. Register now!
What you’ll get from this session
What’s the ideal resume/CV or the strongest portfolio for potential employers and customers? This evening we’re going to teach you how to compile yours. What should you mention, and what should you leave out? How important is the design? We’ll also look at the adjustments you should make for different employers or customers. By the end of this session, you’ll have your own basic resume/CV or portfolio, and you’ll know how to adapt it for any situation.
