Career Services

The Goal of Career Services

The goal of career services is to support students in developing working life skills, creating contacts and planning life after graduation.

Career services support students’ career planning and the development of working life skills,

  • by offering individual career guidance
  • by organizing various events
  • by conveying information about jobs, internships, working life and job search

During the school year, we organize workshops related to working life skills and job search, which will be announced separately later.

Personal Career Guidance

Personal career guidance is an individual, confidential discussion based on the student’s situation. You can talk with a career and recruitment specialist, e.g. on the following topics:

  • identifying one’s own skills and personal strengths
  • employment opportunities during and after studies
  • stating your own goals
  • strengthening career planning and job search skills
  • applying for an internship and a job
  • effective use of various job search channels
  • surveying postgraduate study opportunities
  • writing a CV and job application and preparing for an interview

Career coaching for our international talents

The Talent Coach provides free career coaching and counselling services for all international students. You can get personalised feedback, tips and advice. The coach will follow your case individually and will provide solutions to prepare you effectively and tackle your concerns on job search.
