Career Central manual for students
On this page you will find a step-by-step explanation about the Career Central platform. Here you can find out how to log in, how to respond to (internship) vacancies and how to get in touch with fellow students and alumni.
How do you create a profile
- Easily log in to Career Central with your student number and password.
- Complete your profile. Your Radboud education(s) and the associated skills are automatically entered in your profile. You can also add your own knowledge and experiences. Finally, you can upload a profile picture.
- You can immediately start networking and respond to vacancies that match your profile!
Are you interested in one of the matched vacancies? Press apply and upload a short motivation. After that, it is important that you regularly check "pending requests". Here you can see the status of your application. The employer then chooses whether or not to invite you for an interview.
Bias free matching
At Radboud University we believe in equal opportunities for everyone. That is why the platform is based on fair matching. This means that the platform looks for matches between alumni/students and vacancies by looking for matching skills and knowledge. Based on this, you will only see the vacancies that match your profile. Only after you have been invited for an interview will the employer receive your personal information, such as a name and photo. Your study program and the associated knowledge are automatically loaded into your profile. You can also add skills and knowledge to your profile yourself.
The 'Social' button will take you to your network. Here you will find an overview of all students and alumni on the platform and you can send a connection request.
In the feed you can read all recently posted messages from alumni and students. For example, you can post a poll or announce a reunion.
You can join groups on the left side of the page. Content is shared in these groups. As a student, you can also share and respond to content yourself.
