Support and assistance: What exactly does a Career Service do?

Should I do a master’s degree after my bachelor’s degree or should I take a job right away? Sooner or later, almost all students ask themselves questions like these. The Career Service at Hof University of Applied Sciences helps them find the right answers.

The declared goal of the Career Service is to actively support students during their studies and during the transition into professional life. The support can concern the acquisition of key competencies, job search issues or the application process. Almost all offers are free of charge and apply to students of all semesters and ages who are applying for employment after graduation or for internships beforehand. The placement of students’ final theses with companies is also one of the tasks of a Career Service.

At the same time, the Career Service also acts as a point of contact for companies, associations and institutions that are looking for qualified personnel and would like to establish contact with students in good time. The department is also the point of contact when it comes to publicizing job offers or internship positions throughout the university.

We try to enter into dialog with our students and find the best individual solutions – these are often as different as the people themselves. In the process, of course, we quite often talk about really formative life decisions with big implications for personal futures.”

Susanne Krause, Head of the International / Service / Career Department (ASK)

And she continues: “It is quite natural that doubts or uncertainties often arise. Of course, everyone has to decide for themselves which path they want to take. But we try to offer the best possible assistance.”

In addition, there are often many different options for each career path. This can sometimes make it difficult to decide on one option. This is where contact between students and graduates can often help to shed some light. Last but not least, a variety of events and workshops can contribute to this networking across disciplines or in exchange with companies. “It absolutely doesn’t hurt to start thinking about your future career path as soon as you begin your studies. We support this to the best of our ability,” concludes Susanne Krause.
