Seminars & Career Training

  Seminar Copyright: © Thilo Vogel

To be a successful professional, you need more than just subject knowledge. Your major, final GPA, and length of study are all fundamental hiring criteria.  However, the development of your career after you are hired depends on how well you master soft skills. What kind of business etiquette needs to be followed, how do you present yourself and what you have to offer, and how do you move about within corporate structures?


Childcare During Seminars

As a special service, the Family Services Center of RWTH Aachen University also offers a childcare service for attendance seminars. If you would like to make use of this service, please contact the Family Services Center in good time (at least 3 weeks before the seminar).


The RWTH Aachen Career Center supports your career through opportunities that strengthen your professionalism in the application process and exercise your individual skills. Every semester we put together a comprehensive program to help you with your first steps in the professional world. The majority of our events take place online and they can be accessed from anywhere in the world. You can find all of our offers in the event calendar.

Should you have any questions about or suggestions for our events, please contact the Career Center directly: .
