Saxony Goes Global: Career Service Brings International Students Together Digitally with Regional Companies

On 2 February 2021, the Career Service at Chemnitz University of Technology invites you to the digital English-language networking event Saxony Goes Global. Above all, international students and alumni can meet employers from Saxony who are looking for international employees here

Many international graduates of Chemnitz University of Technology would like to stay and work in the region after graduation. This has been suggested by counseling interviews carried out by the Career Service at Chemnitz University of Technology. For the regional economy, this is a potential pool of excellently trained employees. The challenge is to find the right match. This is where the digital networking meeting Saxony Goes Global comes in. This event will take place online via Zoom starting at 3 pm on 2 February 2021. It is particularly aimed at international students from the fields of STEM and economics. The event will be accompanied by a varied supporting program.

To facilitate networking, there will be separate company rooms. Here, two regional employers will present themselves in each case. Interested parties can get an overview of the wishes, requirements, and offers of the companies.
