Career Service

Our Services for Students

The Career Service accompanies the career path of UW/H students from the very beginning. Whether career workshops on the topic of job applications, the recruiting evening “Heiratsmarkt” or company excursions: Through various events that take place throughout the year, we bring students together with employers, provide start-up assistance for their successful career start and accompany them on their way into professional life. The Career Center, our job portal for UW/H students, also provides job offers and events for UW/H students.
