On 13 March, the Careers Office organised a Career Day for students from K09, K10, and K11.
The students had the opportunity to meet with 18 representatives of renowned organisations and from a variety of industry segments such as the financial services, media, hospitality industry as well as German professors teaching at local universities.
Amongst others, management staff from BASF, Cathay Pacific, Hyatt Regency and the Austrian Consulate shared their views on the opportunities and the pros and cons of various careers.
The students were keen to learn what the best career paths may be, what the personal and professional criteria are to be successful in a particular career, and also enquired about the daily routines of specific jobs.
Dr Klee, the director of the German Academic Exchange Service, advised students about the opportunities of studying in Germany and summarised the main benefits:
High academic quality particularly in the fields natural science, engineering, music and design.
Bachelor studies in Germany are basically free.
Excellent career opportunities as Germany’s economy is flourishing and experiencing a lack of skilled employees and executive managers at the same time.
- International environment:
Studying in English is possible and an active international academic cooperation and exchange between Germany and abroad is pursued.
