Future Day for Female Students

Studies – And Then What?

Sometimes that is a difficult question as there are so many possibilities. Family, career, getting started, or maybe a job with set working hours? And what to do when? Future Day for Female Students 2017 deals directly with such topics.

How do I get off on the right foot when starting my career? How do I want to work later on and what companies reflect my interests? Is a career in industry or in science suitable for me? This event aims to prepare you for and inform you about your future professional life.

Regional and national companies – including Air Liquide, Bosch, Continental, Siemens, Phoenix Contact, PwC Strategy&, Porsche, Saint Gobain and Bank of Canada – will present themselves both at fair booths and with short presentations. Here you have the opportunity to have direct contact with human resource representatives and to learn about application processes and entry-level jobs. Job and continuing education possibilities at RWTH will also be presented. A moderated talk with the companies and a networking get together with beverages and snacks round out the day.
