The job market is complex and offers a wide range of options for students when they finish their degrees. Decisive factors for a successful start to your career are a clear professional goal, some initial experience in actual practice, contacts in the working world, and the ability to make a convincing impression in the job application process. The Career Service supports students from all subjects on their personal journey from their studies via internships to their careers.

We offer support on the following topics:

  • Career guidance/setting goals
  • Application documents
  • Interviews and the selection procedure
  • Contact with employers
  • Internships and looking for jobs

    Many of the consultations we conduct with students focus on questions relating to the job application process. The emphasis is often on the written application: how can documents be tailored individually, reader-friendly, authentic and convincing?

    With the first edition of our series of self-help guides, "Getting started with job applications", we would like to help you with the preparation of your application documents. Besides the formal basics such as the structure of the cover letter and the most important points in the CV, we offer numerous tips on putting your documentation together in an individual way and on successfully mastering online applications.

    You can get printed copies of our guides free of charge in our office in Callinstrasse 14, on the first floor.
