Events in German

26.01.2023 Business Rhetorik

Aufgeregt beim Vorstellungsgespräch?
Kein Wunder, dass man in Vorstellungsgesprächen aufgeregt ist, schließlich ist das keine alltägliche Situation. Aber man kann sich vorbereiten.
Mit der Kenntnis über die richtigen Methoden, dem Wissen um die eigene Außenwirkung und die Erwartungen, die an eine/n Bewerber/in gestellt werden, können sogar solch „unangenehme“ Gespräche gemeistert werden.
In diesem Workshop geht es um Selbstpräsentationsfähigkeit und Gesprächsführungskompetenz, und zwar nicht allein durch die Vermittlung von Wissen über und Analysekompetenz für Gesprächsformen, sondern vor allem durch Selbsterfahrungsprozesse, Feedback und Selbstreflexion. Insofern wird in einem intensiven Training mit hohem Praxisanteil über das eigene Sprechverhalten reflektiert, es werden weitere Strategien und Methoden gelernt und geübt.

Datum: 26.01.2023, 16:00 - 20:00 Uhr

10.11.2022 Student's 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: 10 November 2022, 17:00-18:00 CET

Event registration: frequently asked questions

Can I register for several events (at once)?

Of course you can! You can participate in as many events as you like. If you want to register for more than one event at once, you can do so by going to your cart and then clicking 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 is fully booked, you can add your name to the waiting list on the respective registration page. If a place becomes available, you will automatically receive a message containing a voucher. You can then use this voucher to register within 48 hours. After 48 hours, the voucher expires and the next person on the waiting list will be offered the place.

Why do terms like ticket, order and cart appear on the registration page?

We use a ticketing system which is usually used in the event industry, which is why the terms on the registration pages are similar to those used in numerous online shops. Naturally, our events and workshops are completely free of charge for you. Your ticket, which you order by adding it to your cart and then filling in the registration form, is, so to speak, the confirmation of your registration.

I'm afraid I can't attend after all, who do I notify?

We’re sorry that you can’t make it! We would be happy to see you at the next event! Please notify us by email (career(at) if something comes up – even if it is at short notice. This allows us to keep track of who is supposed to attend the event and to offer someone else to participate.

I missed the event, (when) will it be held again?

Some of our events are held every semester or every other semester, so you will definitely want to check our programme again next semester. If you sign up for the newsletter, you will receive notifications about new events and workshops. If you are interested in a particular event or workshop, don’t hesitate to send us an email (career(at) – we have recorded some events and can make them available to you via MS Teams.
