  19. 19. 19 Some student quotes of our extended master ‘What I particularly liked about my traineeship was learning from the people who have so much knowledge and experience already. I always wondered where sociologist would end up working after their studies, but I finally found the answer’ ~Iris Bakker, 2014, Movisie When looking back, I think it would fit me more if I would have been working at a research institute that does commissioned work. ~Jolien Greven, 2014, Yes! Project Utrecht University I can conclude that this past year has been very instructive to me. I’ve learned about my weaknesses but also about my strengths and abilities both as an individual and professional…….I am thankful for this experience and …I would recommend it to every graduating student’ ~Jessica Villamil, 2013, Inspectorate of Education

Editor's Notes

  • Your predecessors were very enthusiastic and each year few students were offered jobs at the organizations were they had their internship. So it can be very lucrative for you (no guarantees though)!

    The internship is an excellent way to apply the learned theories, methodological knowledge and skills into practice and to get an idea of the work you as a sociologist can get involved in.
  • Welke beroepen kun je uitoefenen met Sociologie, wat kun je worden?
    Aan de zaal vragen wat ze verwachten te gaan doen als Sociologie. Heeft de zaal daar al ideeën over?
