  • Giving Back woensdag 15 mei 2019 07:07:53 Ritchie
    “I want to give back, I need to give back, we need to give back.”

    This is how I ended my speech when I ran for Community Service Chair. As the Community Service Chair of the MBA Association at The University of Alabama, I’m responsible for organizing community service events and providing the MBA students with opportunities to give back to the community. After an event, I usually share some pictures and a recap of the event with my Projob colleagues. This started a conversation on the lack of community service among high school or university students in The Netherlands. Why is there such a low emphasis on giving back to the community?
  • Projob's got talent! woensdag 27 februari 2019 15:48:14 Ritchie
    Let’s be honest here. Monday mornings are not my favorite and I think many of you will agree with me that it’s very tempting to snooze a couple times on Monday mornings. Same thing this past Monday when my alarm went off at 7 AM and I had a Facetime meeting at 8:15 AM. Guess what? I snoozed until 7:50 and then rushed into the shower and sat at my desk at 8:15 on the dot. I guess snoozing and rushing are some of my talents. Let’s talk more about talent!
  • New York State of Mind dinsdag 22 januari 2019 15:02:57 Ritchie
    I think everyone who has been to New York will agree with me that this big city gives you the feeling that you stepped into a completely different world. Some people believe that New York’s charm is being surrounded by things you can’t have. I believe the absolute opposite...
  • Thank u, next! vrijdag 7 december 2018 08:09:14 Ritchie
    November is the month of Thanksgiving … and a lot of stress at school. Thanksgiving to me is about showing gratitude for what life has given you so far. November was also the month of Ariana Grande’s new single ‘Thank u, next’ which is currently ‘breaking’ the internet with about a 100 million views on YouTube.

  • Let’s all have Panda Fridays! woensdag 3 oktober 2018 16:37:56 Ritchie
    A good work-life balance is a way of thinking that emphasizes the ‘ideal’ balance between work and life. This way of thinking is used a lot nowadays where people sometimes ask me: Ritchie, are you not working too much? Do you have time to do fun stuff? Let me share you some of my thoughts on the balance between work, college and social life.
  • Hiring Former Student-Athletes dinsdag 18 september 2018 09:06:00 Ritchie
    According to McCaffrey, collegiate athletes are resilient. Businesses go through tough times and you can get kicked in the teeth. ‘You want people who know that ‘no,’ is just one step closer to a ‘yes.’
  • The only business card you can’t forget to bring donderdag 6 september 2018 13:31:00 Ritchie
    Tell me something about yourself! Almost every interview or network meeting starts with this phrase and seems fairly simple to answer, right? My name is Ritchie Kruunenberg, I’m 23 years old and I’m Dutch. I like to play tennis and to cook …..(awkward pause). That’s when I start thinking to myself: ‘Seriously Ritch, you could have totally expected this question and you could have come up with something more exciting and professional.’
