Jitske Cornielje | Projectmanager

I am Jitske Cornielje project manager of team Bèta Ritme. From September 2022, I am project manager of team Bèta Ritme. Between 2018 and 2022 I was internship and graduation coordinator from Mechatronics. During this period, I had the opportunity to coach students in their professionalization to become a starting Engineer. A part in the study, where students have personal challenges. During these years, I was inspired by the individual support needs of the student. It is my passion to discover, coach and empower talents. From this passion, I will also challenge my colleagues and interns from the studies Applied Psychology and Human Resource Management within team Bèta Ritme. A fantastic work environment, where Engineering students continue to inspire.

Hello, I'm Fleur and I started as a graduate intern in 2019 at Bèta Ritme from the Human Resource Management programme. After that, I stuck around and I enjoy working as a student coach at Bèta Ritme. I combine this with my other job as internship and graduation coordinator at Mechatronics. Helping students find their way within the study or a fitting place within the (internship) work field gives me energy and the variety in this makes it incredibly rewarding work!
