14 November 2023 Student Career Roadmap

The Student Career Roadmap is the tool we have developed in order to guide you through the steps leading to your job in Saarland, Germany and Europe. This Roadmap is a customisable support tool you can personalise to your needs, your field of studies and your professional goals.

It works both like a map and a checklist: you check the knowledge you possess so far, you identify the elements that you still need to integrate into your path and you create a series of interconnected milestones you want to achieve to reach your final destination: integration in your new society through the job you want.

It is composed of two main stages, spread out throughout the whole length of your studies at university. After all, we shall not forget that integration into the labour market is as a long-term process anchored in your student life cycle from the very beginning. Get to know the stages of the Student Career Roadmap.

And don’t worry if you do not have an answer to every step of the map. You can count on us during the whole process!

Date: 14 November 2023, 5 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Place: online (MS Teams)
Speaker: Níkolas Gómez

In cooperation with: Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service)

Registering for an event: FAQs

Can I register for several events?

You can register for as many events as you like. If you want to register for more than one event, simply access your shopping cart and click/tap on 'Add tickets for a different date'.

The event is already fully booked. Is there a waiting list?

We always try to make enough places available. If an event you're interested in is fully booked, you can add your name to the waiting list on the event registration page. If a place becomes available, you will automatically receive a message containing a registration code. The registration code will remain valid for 48 hours, after which the place will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.

Why am I seeing terms like 'ticket', 'order' and 'shopping cart' on the registration page?

Don't let that confuse you! We use a ticketing system similar to that used in the events industry, which is why some of the terms on the registration pages are similar to those found in online shops. But you don't have to pay anything! All our events and workshops are completely free of charge. The 'ticket' that you add to your 'shopping cart' is simply a means of confirming that you have registered for that event.

Something's come up and I won't be able to attend the event. Who should I notify?

We're sorry to hear you can't make it and we hope you can attend next time. If you know you won't be able to attend an event, please don't forget to let us know. Simply send an email to career(at) – even if it's at short notice. This will help us to keep track of who'll be attending the event and let's us offer the place to someone else.

I missed the event! When is it going to be held again?

Some of our events are offered every semester or every other semester, so it's worth checking the event calendar for next semester. If you sign up for our Newsletter, you'll receive regular notifications about upcoming events. And if you're interested in a particular event, it's worth sending an email to career(at) as some events have been recorded and we can provide access to them via MS Teams.
