Mission Statement for the Career Service of Chemnitz University of Technology
Career is the personal professional development and self-realization of an individual.
What we do: We support students in career planning and their professional success.
We inform about career opportunities, applying for a job and job entry. We give individual advice and support students in finding and realizing their professional goal. We offer workshops to train key skills that are also essential for careers and professional success. We establish contacts to companies and arrange internships, jobs and final theses.
Why our work is necessary: A degree does not always guarantee a successful career.
It is not rare that graduates experience a phase of unemployment after graduation. This might lead to frustration, time loss and does no good in terms of morals and the look of one’s resume. It is therefore necessary to create an awareness of the importance of the study-related training and to offer appropriate services.
Our motivation: We are convinced that every graduate has great professional opportunities and the possibility to find the suitable profession.
We are acquainted with the problems, which the transition from student to professional life brings along and can provide appropriate solutions. Therefore, we pass on our knowledge and offer support. In addition, we would like to expand the services offered by TU Chemnitz and contribute to the overall success of the University.
Our qualifications: We have different backgrounds. Our experiences stem from working at universities, in business and the voluntary sector.
After our university education, we worked conceptually and as teachers in adult education as well as in human resources, in corporate and career counselling. As a result, we have extensive contacts to relevant industries and potential employers. As a young team, partially consisting of alumni of Chemnitz University of Technology, we are close to our target group.
