Trajectory guidance for foreign-language speaking employees

Highly educated people with a different mother tongue often find it difficult to find a job that matches their talent. Knowledge of the Dutch language often forms a barrier for the non-native speaker during the selection and recruitment process. However, language is a developable competence. The diversity coaches of the Personnel and Organization Department (DPO) therefore offer coaching during the application process and during the first steps in the UGent workplace:

  • job application training
  • career coaching
  • job coaching
  • language coaching

In this way, the university tries to make the workplace more diverse.
