Guidance for international students
„Being an international student with very little insight about the German job market, the University’s Career Service catered, supported and guided me throughout my entire application processes (writing CV, Cover Letter, interviews, etc.) for internships, thesis and jobs. Apart from that, the Career Service organizes many seminars (also in English language) for job search, interview preparations and trips to the career fares. Also, the University’s vast internal job portal helped me find my current job. The 2 years spent at Hof University were very fruitful for me, since Hof University further developed me and currently, I am applying my knowledge into my professional life."

The area of work and career is an important factor of integration for many of our students. Therefore, it is our goal to incorporate international students even better into the professional environment in the region and in Germany. We also give local companies the opportunity to become better acquainted with our students and their potential.
Therefore, each semester we offer, specifically for international students, various pre-employment events e.g. through:
- General and culture-specific Intercultural Trainings
- Company Excursions
- Company Contact Meetings
- Application trainings
- Business Etiquette Training
- Presentations by international alumni
For counseling, we ask for an appointment (by telephone or by e-mail). The counseling itself can take place by zoom, by phone or by email.
If you make an appointment for a check of your application documents, we request that you send us your documents by e-mail in advance.
Counseling appointments generally take 30 to 60 minutes.
We do not offer direct job or internship placement. In Germany, self-contained searching is common. Thus, you acquire skills that future employers expect and which prepare you for professional life.
