Tips on job search and applications
In the Guide to starting your career in Germany by the Federal Employment Agency, you will find useful information regarding job search and applications in Germany. You can also make an appointment there for individual advice.
For searching jobs online, you may use, for example:
- Hochschul-Jobbörse (an online vacancy database initiated by various higher education institutions)
- Job Board by the Federal Employment Agency
You can always search for a job and show your availability by creating your personal profile in an online job portal or professional online networks.
You should also make use of job fairs or trade fairs to get into contact with companies. Since 2020, THWS participates in the job fair JOBMESSE study&stay, which takes place annually in November.
Tips in English for applications in German are available from the International Career Service.
