Career & Network

Are you seeking to back up your theoretical knowledge with practical know-how? Are you looking for interesting job offers? Do you need support with your application? Or do you hope to benefit from the University of Bayreuth's network as one of our alumni? Then you've come to the right place.

Starting out well-networked

The University of Bayreuth Career Services team provides a central interface between your studies and career. It supports students of all disciplines in starting their careers, and offers alumni contact to their alma mater. At the same time, it provides companies with access to the talented young people at our dynamic and research-oriented university through a wide variety of cooperations.

The two flagship events organized by Career Services are the Career Days workshop series in the summer semester and the Career Forum company contact fair in the winter semester. These events enable direct exchange between students and partners practising in business, and are often the first step towards an internship or your first permanent position.
