Wouter Bos and the art of networking: Arrive late and get noticed
VU alumnus and former deputy prime minister Wouter Bos shared his thoughts on the sense and nonsense of networking with hundreds of first-year students.

Interview with Jatin Sehgal, Manager IT security Ernst & Young
Information security expert Jatin Sehgal’s schedule is ‘loaded’, but he was happy to free up an hour for VU, where he followed the post graduate programme IT Audit. Jatin talked passionately about ISO27001, cyber and software security as an opportunity for growth, and that one word around which everything else revolves: trust.     

Interview with archaeologist Andrea Travaglia
If you rise above the crowd, you get noticed. With that credo, Andrea Travaglia got a job immediately after college, working as a guest researcher at UvA on a project that uses an innovative format of education and training for archaeological and natural heritage. Not in Italy, where her roots lie, or Adelaide, where she was born, but in Amsterdam.
