CareerLab in Corvinus
What does success mean to you? What are the most important ingredients for a successful career path? Is there a recipe?
The way we see it, success is embracing individual opportunities. Not a ready-made recipe, but more of you finding and adjusting your own strategies, for which trial and error, evaluating your options and ingerdients are crucial.
We can choose from various life strategies, which means that we should not look for a single correct solution, but rather for personalized opportunities.

Surviving and thriving in the wake of pandemic – Mental health promoting group
It is nearly the third year since the COVID-19 pandemic appeared in our lives. Undoubtedly, it had and still has an impact on our lives and mental health. Social distancing, isolation, recurring quarantines, grief and fear, uncertainty, changing living conditions and future perspectives, and existential anxiety are just some of the direct or indirect effects caused by the pandemic that we had to face in the last three years. In such crisis situations, it is essential to focus on our mental health, reflect on our well-being and try to prevent the emergence of further problems.
Our mental health promoting group consists of 5 sessions and it aims to help develop coping strategies in relation to the mental health distress caused by the pandemic. Through discussions, joint reflections, and group and individual exercises the program will focus on the following topics in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic:
● What is it like to be a student online and how can we return to the offline world?
● How does the pandemic influence peer relationships/friendships and what can we do?
● How does the pandemic affect our family relationships?
● What are some ways to deal with stress, tame anxiety and befriend our nervous system?
● How does this period affect our motivation and achievement?
● Dealing with changes in daily schedules, time management
● What can I do for my mental health and for the others in my surroundings?
● How to better regulate our emotions, deal with various moods, and prepare for future challenges?
Participation in the group is free, however, it is limited to a maximum of 12 participants.
For this reason, we kindly ask you to apply only if you are able and willing to take part in all of the 5 sessions.
Timing: 10:30 AM – 2 PM

Who will lead the group?
– Adrienn Kroó will facilitate the group meetings. Adrienn is a clinical psychologist and EMDR therapist working at the Trauma Centre.
– Tamás Csikós, student support psychologist from the Corvinus University will act as co-facilitator.
The group is organized in cooperation with the Trauma Centre which was established in 2018 based on strong professional pillars and methods with the aim to provide care for people who experienced trauma. Our priority is to support disadvantaged or prejudiced social groups, as well as the rehabilitation of people whose financial or social situation does not allow them to have access to professional and continuous mental health support.
Our goals also include the sensitization and training of those who get in contact with traumatized people during their work about the specific trauma-related aspects of working with their clients or co-workers. We also consider it important to improve general social knowledge and awareness about mental health with the aim of maintaining health and preventing disorders.
