Career Services for students

Career Services supports students in their career orientation and offers possibilities for companies to contact students. 

Studying involves more than just getting a diploma. Even while studying you are faced with questions concerning your career after you graduate. Which optional subject will you choose, will you study a subject abroad and what are your possibilities generally speaking? Career Services is here to help and support you in thinking about your future – enabling you to start your successful career as soon as you have graduated. We provide information and offer various services for students to prepare for life after their studies, including career counselling, study choice tests, workshops, the career platform Jobteaser and a negotiation consultation hour.

Career counselling

Plan your appointment
Planzelf
You can make an appointment with a career counsellor via Planzelf.

During an appointment, we always look at your specific situation and wishes. We offer you tests and practical exercises to help you gain insight into your skills, interests, traits and motivations and identify the types of work and field(s) or industries that match your profile.

Individual cv check

You can schedule an appointment yourself with the self-planner on the website and send your CV to the career counsellor at least one day in advance.

Career platform JobTeaser

Whether you are a student or a graduate, we are here to guide you through your job search and application process. JobTeaser simplifies the process of discovering a wide range of opportunities, including jobs, internships, and career events. What is even more exciting, is that it is not limited to external companies. UT's departments, student associations, and groups like EngD can also share job openings and career-related activities.

ACCESS JOBTEASER

To get you started, here you will find an instruction video on how to use the JobTeaser platform.

Career Café

Twice a year (in April and October), Career Services organises a Career Café in cooperation with the UT Alumni Office. At the Career Café, you meet UT alumni from all over the world, who would love to share their experiences and give you tips on getting the (maybe) perfect job.

In small groups of max. 4 students you can ask questions such as:
  • How did you get your first job?
  • Did you encounter any pitfalls in searching for a job?
  • Which skills are most important in your job?
  • Were you planning to find a job in this specific field/country/city?
  • How did you experience the transition from studying to working?

The dates for the next Career Café are currently unknown. As soon as these are known, you will find more information via this website and this will also be communicated via social media and newsletters.

Study choice test

Are you a bachelor's student and are you unsure if you have chosen the right programme? Or do you expect a negative binding recommendation (BSA) and would you like to orientate on other study programmes? Then you can make an appointment for a study choice/interest test. After completing an interest test, you will discuss the results of the test in a personal conversation. You can schedule an appointment yourself with the self-planner on the website.
