Die Künstliche Intelligenz verändert die Arbeitswelt und Hochschullehre in rasantem Tempo. Auch der Bewerbungsprozess wandelt sich durch die Künstliche Intelligenz. Doch wie kann ich das als Bewerber:in zu meinem Vorteil nutzen? Wie kann ich mir von der KI beim Bewerbungsprozess für Praktika, Abschlussarbeiten oder den ersten Job helfen lassen und die Wahrscheinlichkeit einer Einladung zum Vorstellungsgespräch erhöhen? Auch immer mehr Unternehmen setzten KI und Algorithmen im Bewerbungsprozess ein. Das muss jedoch kein Nachteil für Bewerber:innen sein, wenn dies bei der Bewerbung berücksichtigt wird. In diesem interaktiven Vortrag wollen wir uns den Potenzialen der KI für den Bewerbungsprozess widmen.

Trainer: Kristian Schubert, prozessorientierter Trainer, Supervisor und Coach

Keine Anmeldung erforderlich, der Link zu Zoom wird kurz vor der Veranstaltung vom Career Service per E-Mail versendet.

Job Portals of Hof University

Hof University offers you the two job portals StellenHof and Hochschuljobbörse, for searches for (part-time) jobs, internships, working student positions and theses. 

For more information regarding the search strategy, as well as other general job portals, please visit our Moodle.


The StellenHof portal is a protected area that only students of Hof University can view.

The portal contains a large number of job advertisements from Germany and abroad. All offers on StellenHof have been received by the university directly from companies and institutions in order to make them known among the students.



These offers can, but do not necessarily have to be published in other job portals on the internet.

Please login to see the job offers:



The Hochschuljobbörse is a joint portal with 18 other, mainly Bavarian universities. Companies post their job ads here themselves and present themselves in a company profile

In addition, the Hochschuljobbörse offers Go Match. This is a service in which you express your wishes and requirements for the internship in a questionnaire and then suitable internships are suggested to you within the framework of a scoring.
