The Career Service is a service organization for students, graduates, businesses, and young alumni of Nuremberg Tech. We support you with your profiling and prepare you for your entry into the workplace. We also act as a bridge-builder between you and companies or organizations in the economic and social sectors.

2020 Practice Days from 2 - 13 March 2020

This year we are again organizing our Practice Days for students of engineering, computer science, economics, and social sciences with over 180 companies and organizations from all over Bavaria. They visit companies and organisations and are given further insight into professional practice. At the same time you have the opportunity of making contacts for your semester placement, your bachelor's or master's thesis, and your career start.
The Practice Days are a collaboration project of the Career Services of the universities of applied sciences at Ansbach, OTH Amberg-Weiden, Augsburg, Coburg, Hof, TH Ingolstadt, Kempten, Landshut, Munich, Neu-Ulm, Lutheran University of Applied Sciences (EVHN), OTH Regensburg, TH Rosenheim, and Würzburg-Schweinfurt under the general management of Nuremberg Tech: www.hochschul-praxistage.de (in German)

Career Service guidelines

The advice provided to students, graduates, and young alumni in the Career Service is confidential, transparent, person-, context- and solution-centered, and independent.

The substantive focus lies on clarifying and planning the career direction, creating a profile and application strategy, and preparing for company personnel selection procedures.

The Career Service is often identified by companies and organizations as the first point of contact when they want to find out what possibilities there are at Nuremberg Tech for their university marketing and specific personnel recruitment. Associations also look for a suitable framework in order to present themselves. The Career Service acts in an advisory capacity here and, if necessary, involves other experts at the university in this need for clarification.

Students and graduates in turn are supported by the Career Service in gaining various insights into the world of work and being able to learn from profession representatives. They gain an overview of their relevant and specific labour market and are given opportunities to build up their professional network at an early stage. It is also a question of exploring whether they see their professional future in small, medium-sized or large enterprises and are seeking a professional perspective in the region or striving for a career at national or international level.

Using suitable formats, the Career Service supplements the existing offers in Faculties or other services or facilities of the university:

The design and organization of the Bavaria-wide university practical experience days under the overall control of Nuremberg Tech, the commitment of companies, organizations, and associations to the Career Service’s seminar programme, and the support with the development and orientation of the job listings are essential components here.

  • The Career Service adopts a (value-)neutral and independent attitude in respect of companies, organizations, and associations.
  • The Career Service’s formats focus on the professional aspect.
  • The collaboration is planned on a long-term basis and is not orientated to companies’ short-term recruitment needs.
  • The Career Service promotes the visibility of medium-sized enterprises in Bavaria and pays attention to maintaining an appropriate balance of SMEs and large enterprises.
  • If resources are limited, preference is given to companies or organizations already committed to training our students.
  • Seminars in the Career Service are aimed at the acquisition of competencies by students and graduates and are to be understood as a learning laboratory. They remain free of advertising material. Enterprises, organizations, and associations rotate according to a fixed schedule, which on the one hand also gives other companies the opportunity to present themselves but on the other hand ensures planning security and commitment. When defining the target groups for the workshop, the needs thereof are firstly clarified and examined.

All services of the Career Service such as individual consultations, seminars, and practical experience days are evaluated.

For students, the following note on data protection: the personal data you provide in association with the use of counseling sessions or participating in seminars from our Career Service is stored and processed by the Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm.

The Career Service acts as an interface between the university, companies, organizations, and students.

It provides support by “...helping students and graduates, along the academic life cycle, to develop professional goals and employment-relevant skills, and be able to take up suitable employment following successful university studies.” (csnd 2018: Bremen declaration).

In 2011, the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) described three core tasks of career services:

  • Providing students and graduates with information and advice so that they take responsibility for shaping their professional career in the context of the knowledge society.
  • Strengthening the exchange between teaching and the world of work.
  • Contact management and connecting students, graduates, and employers.

The Career Service primarily represents the interests of the students here. In collaboration with external partners, it is a question of achieving a win-win-win situation for students, the university, and companies.
