Career Planning Guide

Are you approaching the end of your studies and will soon be starting your career? Or do you want to find out well in advance how best to enter the working world?

Here at Career Services, we see it as our job to support graduates in transitioning from student life to professional life. Taking a resource-oriented, holistic approach, we focus not only on the skills that graduates have acquired during their studies, but also on their life experiences and personal resources. 

To help you through the whole process, we have designed a career planning guide which can be used in one of the following ways:

You can work through this online guide alone - step by step or just partially - and develop your thoughts on particular questions. Plenty of helpful hints and practical exercises are available for this.

Or we are happy to discuss your current situation in a personal consultation. Even if you have registered for a consultation, it is still helpful if you make certain reflections in advance. Here the online career planning guide can be useful in clarifying some of your queries prior to the meeting.

Are you a citizen of a Non-EU/EFTA country?

For citizens of a Non-EU/EFTA Country special work permit regulations for your work during and after your studies.  Please read the information carefully as it can significantly affect your chances of finding a job. Regardless of that, our services are available to you.
