The ZU TalentCenter is the starting point for students when it comes to contacts in the exciting world of jobs and advice on all aspects of application and careers. Whether it's advice with practical training and internships at home and abroad, information on our coaching services or study projects with partners from ZU, our services for students cover all of the above and more.

In addition to individual counselling, we offer a wide range of events and workshops every semester: From job application training to student tax tips and case study workshops with exciting employers.

The TalentCenter team will be happy to assist you with individual questions and suggestions at any time. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us!


If you have any questions about internships and starting a career, you are welcome to contact the TalentCenter team. We will be happy to support you with the following issues, among others:

| career planning
| professional orientation

| decision-making
| internships at home and abroad
| Application documents (DE, EN)
| Application process (written application, interview)
| Practice Coaching

We will be happy to advise you by e-mail, telephone, Skype or in a personal meeting. Please make an appointment, preferably by email at talentcenter@zu.de.


To give you tools for the application process and your professional life and to bring a little more of the hands-on experience into the university, we offer various trainings, workshops with companies and, of course, ZUtaten - ZU's workshop and career days.

Here are some examples of events from past semesters:

| ZUtaten - the workshop and career days
Here you can find detailed information about ZUtaten:www.zu-taten.de

| Application - classic and creative
What should I include in my CV? How do I formulate a cover letter? And which certificates should I send with my application? Whether you're applying for an internship or your first job, your application portfolio is your ticket to an interview. If you know the rules, you can also break them. In this seminar you will learn examples of creative applications.

| The job interview
You have already convinced with your written application, the next hurdle is the job interview. In a personal interview, you can not only convince your future employer with your appearance, but also check for yourself whether the company is a good fit for you. In this workshop, you will learn about the interview process and receive valuable tips on how to prepare.

I My future perspectives - Who am I, what can I do, where do I want to go?
During your studies at ZU, you have taken interesting subjects, gained your first practical experience and worked on interesting projects. And now you ask yourself: And now? Where do I want to go professionally? Maybe you already have a lot of ideas, but none of them are quite right. Or you don't quite know yet where your actual interests and strengths lie. Or you already know roughly what you want to do later, but are still looking for confirmation of your plans?

You can find information on current events, trainings and seminars at the TalentCenter in the TalentCenter newsletter and in the general ZU events calendar.

Practice Coaching

We are happy to support you in your search for a suitable PraxisCoach. Many of the former PraxisCoaches have agreed to take on coachees in the future. On our career platform zu|connect, we have created a database that provides you with an uncomplicated overview of all available practice coaches. Click here for our PraxisCoach Pool

You will benefit most from coaching if you have as precise an idea as possible of the issues your coach could help you with. Ideally, your coach should work in a field in which you see your professional future. If you still need support with your professional orientation, you are welcome to make an appointment with us.
