Fontys Information and Communication Technology has spent many years pursuing an inclusive school environment. Recently, we realised that this still isn't enough. Many bachelor's and master's graduates struggle with bridging the gap between studying and work. To help bridge that gap, Fontys Information and Communication Technology and TU/e worked together to set up Career Jumpstart. This initiative creates an opportunity for struggling students to find their perfect job.
Career Jumpstart aims for a future in which every student can find a well-suited and fun job. We have an experienced team to help candidates. We also have many contacts with external experts who can offer their expertise when needed. Every student and graduate who needs help can count on us! We'll like to introduce our team!
I am Dutch, 51 years, married and a mother of two teenagers, a daughter and a son. Our daughter officially has autism and our son is not diagnosed but we recognise his a-typical beauty.
Long ago I did my master at the TUE and I work since 2013 at FHICT as a teacher, tutor, writing coach or mentor for international students. This year I learned how to be a job coach. I am an enthusiastic positive person who wants to help you to take the next step you need to reach your goal. It is all about you!
En natuurlijk mag je ook gewoon Nederlands praten met mij, als dat je taal is.
Because autism, ADHD, and dyslexia are prevalent within my family, I decided to get a master's degree as an autism specialist in 2012. My areas of expertise are helping people get back to work and (job) coaching.
I strive to create a more inclusive society in which talented students get the chance to shine and work fulfilling jobs. I find fulfilment in the challenge of figuring out what career suits you best and finding the companies that meet your needs. This is what brings me a lot of joy.
I have had a blast teaching at Fontys Information and Communication Technology for sixteen years and counting. Besides teaching, I'm also a semester coach and an internship and graduate supervisor. I also volunteer as a study coach for Planckgas (Fontys Applied Science). After an inspiring course to become a walking therapy coach, I realised how valuable nature is in coaching. I must admit my bias, as I enjoy strolling through nature in my spare time. Other hobbies are reading, singing, Tai Chi, music, theatre and drawing.
I'm a mother of four sweet children, with three of them having autism. I'm also a grandmother of a very adventurous toddler and an adorable baby. I enjoyed following the Practitioner Autism course at Fontys OSO in 2019-2020. It helped me get an even better understanding of autism. Recently, I finished job coach training. I can't wait to start this journey together with you!
Hi, I'm Britt, a married, proud mama of a daughter and a son, and a proud owner of a sweet but very stubborn dog. With a background in pedagogy and educational science, I started in 2014 as a semester coach for Fontys Information and Communication Technology. Driven to mean something to others, I quickly focused on guiding students who needed a little more help.
As a member of Student+, I want to contribute to making our education as inclusive as possible. It brings me joy if people feel seen and heard, especially when I can give them the support needed to regain their confidence. Recently, I've finished my training for 'Autisme Centraal Methodiek' and a course for job coaching. I can't wait to help you on your way to finding the perfect job.
Hi, I'm Juliette. I've worked as a teacher, semester coach, and internship and graduation supervisor at Fontys Information and Communication Technology since 2017. Recently, I followed and finished a course for job coaching. I think it's important that everyone find a job they love, and I'm ready to help you find your match. My goal is to help you find solutions and listen to your needs until we've found the job that suits you.
I'm an external job coach at Fontys. I also work for 'Autismepunt' as a job coach and re-integration coach. Within Fontys, I'm involved with several studies as a job coach, in which I support teachers and students. This support revolves around internships, graduations and finding a job. I'm interested in people and their talents. I'm convinced that work and participation in society give fulfilment and happiness to the people involved. This is why it's such a fun job to do.
I believe that everyone within our society counts, regardless of your qualities and pitfalls. As long you're content with who you are and what you do. My focus within Fontys Information and Communication Technology is supporting (graduated) students who need a little more help. Together, we'll figure out the requirements a job needs to make you happy and at ease in your workspace. Few things bring me as much joy as helping students. Other sources of joy are my four children, drinking wine and going out for dinner. I also enjoy playing a thrilling game of beach volleyball.
