The BBB Career Event Foundation is completely run by students. Each year, a board of approximately six volunteering students is formed to organise events that help students to prepare for their future. Being a board member is a very interesting extracurricular experience. All board members are students at the Faculty of Science of the Radboud University.

Hi there! My name is Philippe Heuthorst and I am 21 years old. Since 2019 I have been studying the Physics and Astronomy. I love talking about design, architecture and films. This year, I am proud to be the President of the 32nd Board of the BBB Career Event Foundation.
As the president of the BBB Career Foundation, it is my privilege to work with a talented team of individuals who are dedicated to improving the career opportunities for people at our university. As president, my role is to oversee the strategic direction of the foundation, build relationships with businesses, students and their study associations, and ensure that our events are having a meaningful impact on the people we serve. I am always looking for new ways to expand the reach and impact of BBB Career Event Foundation.
Hi everyone, my name is Saranne van der Linde and I am a third year student of the bachelor Artificial intelligence. I will be this year’s Vice President & Secretary of the BBB Career Event Foundation.
As the vice president, I assist the president of the BBB when needed but also fulfill other tasks. As the board member with only small fixed duties I am flexible to call companies, design the career book and think about innovations to make our events even better. Furthermore it’s my task to implement the first version of the Workshop Week this year.
Vice president is a position with loads of freedom and variation, the only limit is your own ambition.
As the secretary my main concern is everything that needs to be communicated. This includes keeping our inbox in check by labelling all incoming emails, writing the weekly minutes during our meetings or communicating with other boards. It’s a very social function, where you are always talking to somebody or bringing people together.
A secretary has to be very comfortable being around people and know their way with words. A good secretary makes sure all matters are communicated clearly, correctly and documented properly.
Hello, I am Davy Peters. I am currently a fourth year student of the double bachelor Mathematics and Physics & Astronomy and I am this year’s treasurer of the BBB.
The treasurer is responsible for all thinks money related throughout the year. At the start of the year they make a budget for the coming year, in which they try to fit all the ideas of the board members. During the year they keep track of the budget by managing revenues and expenses. The treasurer monitors whether they are still on schedule and looks at if there are adjustments that can or must be made to the budget, by looking at possibilities for spending or saving more money. Aside from the bookkeeping, the treasurer also has the opportunity and responsibility to perform other duties within the board.
To become treasurer, prior bookkeeping skills are not a requirement. However, it is favourable to be precise and ordered.
Hello, I am Leopold van IJzendoorn, currently doing my BSc in Computing Science, and I am honored to be serving as this year's account manager. As an account manager, I am entrusted with the important responsibility of acquiring new companies and fostering relationships with existing partners. I serve as the primary point of contact for companies seeking assistance and must possess a unique combination of boldness and finesse in my dealings.
In addition to these responsibilities, I am also tasked with the exciting challenge of finding new and innovative companies that align with our mission and values. This, however, can be a difficult task, but I am fortunate to have the support of my fellow board members who assist me in this endeavor. The acquisition process can be a challenging one, requiring a delicate balance between assertiveness and understanding. On a daily basis, I must navigate the delicate balance between these two opposing forces, ensuring that I am able to secure new business while also maintaining positive relationships with our existing partners.
Hi, my name is Justin Hen and I'm currently finishing up my double bachelor Mathematics and Physics & Astronomy. Besides that, I will be this years Logistics Manager.
The logistics manager is ultimately responsible or the set up of the events. It’s my job to realise the vision of the board, while taking into account the wishes of the companies and visitors. An event for more than 1000 people takes a lot of logistical managing, and important tasks are to design a proper floor plan, making scripts for the board and volunteers, and obtaining the right reservations and licenses. It’s all about understanding people and their behaviour, and giving them a wonderful day at the event about which they will talk about long after. The biggest compliment you can get as a logistics manager is when you’ve heard no one complaining but when everyone is smiling.
Logistics manager is a function where creativity, a solution-driven attitude and structure must converge.
Hello, my name is Philine Kockelkoren. I am in my third year of the Artificial Intelligence bachelor and I am this year's PR&IT manager. As PR&IT Manager, I am in charge of creating promotional designs, maintaining the website, and managing the social media pages.
My main task is designing flyers, pamphlets, the Career Book and posters to promote events. I create designs that will help attract students and keep them informed of upcoming events. Although it is up to me to come up with ideas, I need to collaborate with other board members to discuss and refine my designs.
Besides that, maintaining the website is an important part of the PR&IT Manager’s job. I am responsible for ensuring that the website is up-to-date and that any necessary changes are made quickly and correctly.
Finally, I am in charge of the organization’s social media pages. This includes managing the accounts, creating content, responding to inquiries, and keeping the pages up to date with relevant information. I am also responsible for tracking analytics to ensure that the social media pages are performing well.
