The Career committee brings students and companies closer together by hosting the annual Career Days. The Career Days are aimed at inspiring students to think about their ambitions, talents, and future. Furthermore, students get the opportunity to orient themselves on the job market. The events include company presentations, case studies, training, workshops, lunches, networking drinks, and in-house visits. Besides the Career Days, the committee will organize two other career-related events during the year. Do you like to create big events and building a network for you and your fellow students? Then this is the perfect committee for you!
It’s all in the name. This committee organizes a social drink every 3 weeks, which makes a total of 14 social drinks throughout the year.

Every year, the social drink committee aims to organize a beer cantus in collaboration with another association.
The EmbrACE Committee will publish four EmbrACE magazine issues in the academic year, which translates to one issue per academic term. The magazine is officially recognized and subsidized by the faculty and is there to represent and feed the interests of students from all three ESHCC study programs. ACE encourages the EmbrACE committee to write creatively and informatively about issues that are at their, and their peers’ hearts. The editorial team writes articles, reviews, and opinion pieces for both our print edition and online. EmbrACE online is a separate page on the IFA ACE website, and members of the committee each write multiple articles for this platform throughout the year. Join this committee if you are an inspired writer, or creative in any other way. Throughout the year, we have several brainstorm sessions where we decide what the themes will be for the four issues. If you want to be a famous photographer or are super creative in writing or desire to contribute to a fantastic editorial team, don't hesitate to sign up!
