Press Release: Career start for international students in Karlsruhe

November 21, 2016
 

Start your Career: event of KIT and the TechnologyRegion gave students, PhD candidates, and postdocs from abroad information on starting a career

International alumni are extremely important for the German labor market, not least due to the skills shortage. KIT and TRK (TechnologyRegion Karlsruhe) showed them what entry possibilities there are in the TRK as part of the event “Start your Career in the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion”: round about 140 students, interns and (junior) scientists gained insights into the work opportunities in Germany as well as on organizational matters, such as applying for visas and work permits. International alumni of KIT who have been working in the TRK since attaining their degree reported on their experiences. “Studying at KIT provides an excellent basis for a successful career start. Our clear aim is to educate young people in a comprehensive and research-oriented manner and provide them with interdisciplinary and intercultural skills”, said professor Thomas Hirth, the Vice President for Innovation and International Affairs at KIT. In short talks the TRK presented itself as an attractive region for both working and living. Various service facilities of KIT presented their available services and were available for counselling talks. Among these service facilities were the International Students Office, the Company and Career Service, Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists as well as the International Scholars and Welcome Office. Also represented were the CyberForum e. V., the Employment Agency for Karlsruhe and Rastatt as well as the Kontaktstelle Frau & Beruf (Advice Center Women & Careers).

The event was organized by the service unit International Affairs and Company & Career Service of KIT in cooperation with the TechnologyRegion Karlsruhe. It was sponsored by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing Baden-Württemberg as well as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
