Coaching and networking

Our mentoring programme will help you to learn more about the areas in which you would like to work. Who could be better placed to understand your situation than a former international student from your department who has found a job in Germany? As your mentor, he/she will tell you about his/her own experience, give you careers advice and answer your questions.

Internships and job search

Internships are an ideal way to gain professional experience and meet a future employer. Fulda University maintains close contacts with companies from the local area and throughout Germany and helps you to search for a suitable placement. The Careers Service will also arrange a visit to the annual careers fair organised by Fulda University and business enterprises from the Fulda region.

Internal and external partners

The Careers Service works in partnership with the university departments, the immigration office and Fulda's municipal employment office.
