The best way you can get access to the right companies and business world as a student is by building a bridge already before you finish your studies. A great way to do so is by writing your thesis project with a relevant company. A company you could imagine yourself working after you graduate. At Excelerate we make this possible.
A more fluid transition from student to full-time work in company – through a student thesis project collaboration – increases the chances of you landing your dream job just after graduation. Also, this will decrease the chances that you end up working in a role you are overqualified for or do not feel comfortable with.
On the Excelerate platform you get to collaborate with a company interested in the same thesis topic as you. You will be working closely together with the company for the months you are writing your thesis. Here you can really get to know the company and the people in it, which gives you exciting career opportunities within the company when your collaboration ends. This also increases the chances of you landing a job right after you graduate.
In other words, by engaging with a company through a thesis collaboration, you already have a foot in the door in the business world and a larger professional network. Who knows – maybe your dream job will end up being in the thesis collaboration company?
