The Young Professionals section of the PGK and AAPG brings together Netherlands-based early-career workers and students in the field of Petroleum Geology. Our aim is to provide you an opportunity to meet peers, build and expand your professional network, and get support at the start of your career.

The core of our activities are monthly YP lectures and workshops, followed by social drinks. These are held every first Wednesday of the month. We also organise an annual YP excursion, visit geo universities, and keep you informed on interesting events. Participating in our activities does not require any membership, but we do encourage you to join the PGK and AAPG (note that both provide student discounts).

Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn, and subscribe to our mailing list to stay up-to-date on our activities. You can do this by email or through one of the board members: Kevin Bisdom, Lisanne Douma, Linda Janssen, Erik Sens, and Koen van Toorenenburg.

Many companies use assessment centres as part of their recruitment and selection process. For them, they're a sure-fire way of getting the right people. For you, they're a challenging assault-course of individual and group tasks - and your goal is to be the last candidate left at the end.

By the end of the session you will:

  • Know how and why employers use assessment centres
  • Know some of the typical selection tasks that are used
  • Have been given the chance to have a go at some of the assessments.
