Advising and Job Market Integration for International Graduates

Getting onto the job market in Germany can sometimes seem a difficult feat to international students, who may initially not be so familiar with its procedures or standard application rules, or perhaps do not feel so confident with their German skills and are somewhat wary of the cultural differences that may await them in the workplace.

The Career Center offers many training sessions and seminars for international students to support them in finding their dream job in Germany. We also provide information on many topics related to the application process in several different languages to give you a great start in initiating your own applications. Further, we offer application checks in English.


Application materials always include a cover letter and resume. These documents should be specifically tailored to the job description in order to clearly highlight your skills. Please read our detailed FAQs on how to put together your application materials.
