=======================================================

For Students, PhDs, PostDocs of the UZH (until 2 years after graduation)

These services are only available to students of continuing education (CAS, DAS, MAS) after consultation with our counseling team. Capacity may be limited due to high demand.

Are you about to finish your studies and need help with your application? Or would you like to find out early about opportunities within different fields of profession?
Our goal is to help you become more aware of your abilities and interests and to enable you to successfully transition into the world of work. We pursue this task with passion and commitment!
Whether for a CV or motivation letter check in our drop-in, an mock interview training or a 60 minute personal consultation with a career couselor: we look forward to seeing you!
Take a moment to consider the following points before you visit us:


What is a consultation with a career counselor for?

• For assistance with the question "What should I do after graduation?"
• To search for possible occupational fields, positions and employers
• To identify your own interests and abilities
• To develop a versatile application strategy

• For a detailed review of your application dossier
• To review the procedure for previously unsuccessful applications
• To overcome difficulties in taking the next step

• Sign up early for a consultation, even if your concern is not yet "urgent". This way you can avoid unpleasant emergency situations shortly before you graduate!


What a consultation does not offer

• Normally no CV checks in the consultation. Please visit our drop-in on Tuesdays between 11h-13h (see below) or our Application Garage. Exception: detailed review of your dossier if you are about to start the application process.
• No student advice. The student advisory service is available at the Student Advisory Services
• For questions of further education, please consult the overview page berufsberatung.ch


Prioritize

Think about which concerns you would like to discuss in a 60 minute consultation. Maybe you have a lot of questions that you want to clarify as quickly as possible. Set priorities and think about what you need right now to take the next steps.


Preparation

In order to benefit as much as possible from a consultation, it makes sense to do some self-exploration before. Our consultants assume that you have consulted our Career Planning Guid, read our worksheet Preparation for consultation (PDF, 427 KB) and noted down your thoughts (PPTX, 34 KB) before the consultation. On our website you will find many tips, job offers and links that can help you.


Registration

For a 60 minute free consultation you can register and make an appointment. Please read the terms of participation before registering.

For whom is the Application Garage suitable?

For students, doctoral students and post-docs of the UZH, who

  •     wish a follow-up after the drop-in visit
  •     would like to get a more in-depth look at their portfolio
  •     have no quiet workplace at home
  •     do not have the required office infrastructure (printer, computer)
  •     like society when working on their application portfolio - because a trouble shared is a trouble halved
  •  

At the moment, the Application Garage does not take place because of COVID-19.

 

Last but not least

Arrive on time - you allow us a smooth organisation and your fellow students a fair chance for a free slot in the drop-in or in a consultation.

Please note that we are a small team. We try everything to make even short-term requests possible, but ask for your understanding, if we do not succeed.

And if you have any further questions, come back or visit one of our workshops or events!
