Career & Network
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.
Find the right companies for you
Career Days are a series of workshops, and serve as a platform for intensive exchange between companies and students. Students at the University of Bayreuth gain in-depth insights into current issues and decisions made by companies first-hand.
Individual discussions, career dinners, workshops, company slams, and a careers fair: For many years, we have been offering Career Forum at the University of Bayreuth as a space for active cooperation between students and companies.
