Guidance & coaching

Labour markets are undergoing change. Classical career paths are falling by the wayside; job profiles are becoming blurred. Career planning skills are gaining in importance. Getting information at an early stage, becoming familiar with professional practice and spending time on internal reflection (What are my skills? What exactly do I want?) are all needed.

Do you need assistance with careers advice, career entry or career planning? We are happy to support you through the help of the advisory services we offer.

If you desire a one-on-one consultation with us, please make an appointment by email. Briefly describe your request or concern, stating which subject you are studying, or have studied, which semester you are currently in, or when you graduated. Please include a telephone number that we can use to reach you.

Please start planning your appointment well ahead of time, as you may be required to wait a while before being seen.

We also advise you to make use of our workshops.

The TUHH Career Center cooperates with the TUHH Student Counseling Center, which also offers advice to students on life after university.

The student initiative 'bonding' also runs events. Take a look here: https://hamburg.bonding.de/veranstaltungen/

Should no places be available when you are in need of immediate assistance, please contact us at the TUHH Career Center to make an appointment with us. For this, simply send us a short email.

During the 2017/18 Winter Semester, we are also offering you an application check without prior registration at the following event:
