The Career Center offers numerous ways for you to advertise your company or academic institution online.


Digital Career Days – Virtual Networking With Selected Target Groups

Making contacts and recruiting RWTH graduates for your company is easy thanks to the virtual networking opportunities our Digital Career Days facilitate. These are small fairs for up to eight companies that consist of a company pitch followed by an individual Q&A session. Up to 150 selected students take part in each event. Career Days offer an opportunity for students and companies in a specific sector to get in touch.

Our video sessions held via Zoom start with five-minute company pitches, during which students have the opportunity to submit questions via chat. Subsequently, students can talk to individual companies in dedicated virtual rooms via video conferencing or chat. Companies also have the opportunity to provide further information and contact details on an online platform, making it possible for students to access company information after the event.

This format makes it possible for companies to meet our talented soon-to-be graduates without the need to travel and with little organizational effort. The format has been successfully offered since 2020 and now permanently complements our face-to-face offers. If you are interested in participating in our virtual events or have any comments or questions, please send us an .

The basic package costs 1,300 euros and includes a company pitch, subsequent individual Q&A session, and your company's logo featured on the event website as well as company and contact information published on an online platform.

Business Talk

This format specifically targets the group of students on the Dean's List. The Dean’s List is a measure to determine the top five percent of best students in each course of study.

With our Business Talk program, we offer companies the opportunity to reach out to students on the Dean’s List in a discipline-specific context. The company can offer case studies or strategy workshops, for example, and provides the tasks and the trainers themselves. RWTH Aachen University provides the Zoom video conferencing room and invites students on the Dean's List to the event. Students can be invited by course of study. The company decides how many students are to be invited and from which disciplines.

We can also arrange to have candidates preselected by asking students to send us an application including a CV. We would then pass these applications onto your company for selection. For our services, we charge 2,000 euros without preselection or an additional 500 euros if preselection via CVs is desired.

This format can also be offered as an in-person event on the RWTH premises. Depending on room availability, additional fees, starting from 60 euros per hour, will be charged. If you are interested, we will be happy to provide you with further information.

Ask Me Anything Session

Offer a virtual “Ask Me Anything” session exclusively for your company. Connect with committed potential employees regarding entry-level opportunities in your company. The event takes place on an individually arranged date during the semester and lasts about two hours. You are welcome to use these two hours as you see fit, for example, for a company presentation, casual networking, or a role model talk. The participation fee for your company is 1,800 euros. For an additional 500 euros, we will also advertise your session via our mailing list.

Career Lunch

A "Career Lunch" enables companies to establish contact with young RWTH doctoral candidates through personal conversation and to present their company as a potential employer. RWTH has prepared the infrastructural logistics (restaurant, special conditions) for you and will invite suitable candidates from your desired subject discipline for you. The company pays for catering expenses. We charge each company 2,000 euros (not including VAT) for preparation efforts, inviting doctoral candidates, and promoting the event.
