Get involved in student initiatives, projects and voluntary work. These can be a valuable means of improving your résumé and a rewarding use of your time. Visit our community section for an overview of all the student initiatives you could take part in. In some cases, this might require a considerable investment of your time and can cause a delay in your studies. Visit this site to find out if you are eligible for an administrative grant or extra months for studying. Bear in mind, these positions are usually unpaid (although they look great on your CV).
Interested in entrepreneurship? Get involved with the Maastricht centre for entrepreneurship, which provides support and education to start-ups and young ventures. You can also attend the Maastricht Entrepreneurship Week; an annual event which brings together over 200 students and entrepreneurs for a week of activities and lectures.
