Share your knowledge: 'Career Paths'

The event where alumni and students meet

'Career Paths' is a new series of events where Saarland University alumni return to campus (either virtually or in person) for information and knowledge-sharing sessions at which they talk about how they managed their studies, successfully transitioned to the world of work and achieved their current professional positions.

The first 'Career Paths' session on 15 December 2022 has been run jointly with the English Department at the Faculty of Humanities.
