Brightlands Young Professionals
Brightlands YP is the community for Young Professionals working in one of the Brightlands campuses. The campuses in the region strive to create an ecosystem in Limburg where young talented individuals feel at home. Our partners know very well how important young talent is for the economic development of their company, and for Limburg. That's why they are keen to invest in young professionals that opt for a career in the region!
Our community connects in-company Young Professional organizations and expands upon those. We aim to bring Young Professionals and companies together by organizing special events. That is Brightlands Young Professionals!
We have 8 companies who support our Young Professional community. With these partners, we organize every year at least four events.
The joining companies are: APG, AZL, Rabobank, Gemeente Heerlen, Accenture, Conclusion, Open Universiteit, CGI.
