Living and Working in Germany for International Students

The Career Service aims to support international students at Freie Universität by providing information, advice, and events geared toward career planning, internships, starting a career, and applying for positions. Completing a degree opens up a wealth of options on the German labor market.

If you are looking for an internship or an entry-level job, we offer various workshops, talks, and presentations on searching for and applying for positions. In groups of not more than 15 participants, you can learn where to find suitable listings, how to interpret job postings correctly, and what you should definitely be sure to keep in mind when applying for open positions. You will also learn how to present yourself effectively during job interviews and how to give authentic and persuasive responses to questions. You will be guided through this process by experienced HR specialists and coaches whose own lives and careers have been shaped by international experiences.

The links and information we have compiled in this section provide information on working and starting a career in Germany. You can also see this section for the addresses of important service institutions. You are also welcome to make an appointment for a personal consultation or stop by our office for a check of your application documents.
