ZUtaten - The Workshop and Career Event of ZU

The TalentCenter of ZU is especially committed to promoting talent. Following the principle, "We live and love relationships", corporations, organizations, and institutions from business, culture, and politics have the possibility to search for talent and to get to know ZU students.

On these pages we have therefore listed a selection of possibilities of cooperation that will allow you to get to know talents of ZU - of course not exhaustively. For as different as the needs of all those involved are, as different the cooperation will also be.

We are happy to receive your ideas and suggestions!

Recruiting & Placement

Internships & Job Openings
Those who study at ZU do not only make theoretical experiences. Based on the high percentage of practical experience gained in internships and projects our students combine the academic expectations of a program of studies with the requirements of their future professional lives. As a mandatory part of the program, every student completes two internships, at least one of them abroad.

Ideal periods of time for internships are the summer months from the end of May through the beginning of September. Then ZU is on semester break. Many students, however, also take a whole internship semester and thus can complete work placements either in Germany or abroad for a period of up to six months independent of semester schedules.

Job advertisements for internships, student trainee positions, career entry positions, and final theses can be placed in our online job portal which is only accessible to our students. The publication in the job portal on its own is free of charge. If desired, additional packages to highlight your offer can be booked for a fee.


Additional package 1:                                                                          100 Euro (plus VAT)

  • Publication of the job advertisement in the TalentCenter newsletter, reference to the advertisement on Facebook

Additional package 2:                                                                         250 Euro (plus VAT)

  • Publication of the job advertisement in the TalentCenter newsletter and in the Alumni job newsletter, reference to the advertisement on Facebook, as well as in the alumni groups on XING and LinkedIn.

You have to fill a job vacancy and would like to hire a ZU graduate or student for this position? We will be happy to look for suitable and interested candidates that match the profile you are looking for. We will advertise your job opening, select the most suitable profiles, and will carry out preliminary interviews with the applicants before submitting the candidates´ profiles.

  • Students/alumni without professional experience, per profile:        250 Euro (plus VAT)
  • Alumni with professional experience, per profile                             500 Euro (plus VAT)

Presence at Graduation Ceremonies
Our graduation ceremonies take place twice a year. Then we let our students go to start a new phase in their lives - yet not without some information on how things could go on. Companies and organizations are given the possibility to display information material on stands for sponsors, as well as to have job openings sent to the graduates in a special newsletter.

Your fee:                                                                                          1,000 Euro (plus VAT)

ZUtaten - The Workshop and Career Event of ZU

"Schaffe - net schwätze!" (Work - don´t waste time talking!) The concept of the workshop and career event of ZU follows this typically Swabian motto. And as the German name ZUtaten ("ingredients") already implies, you can put together your own very special menu to get to know students and alumni. The next ZUtaten will take place on March 02 and 03, 2016.

Additional information can be found at

ZUtaten offers you a two-day exchange platform where you will get to know dynamic and committed students. The main part will consist of workshops where you will work on cases and questions from your daily work together with people who are thirsty for knowledge and who think out of the box, and thus both sides will get to know each other. Additional parts of the formula for success are interactive company presentations, as well as both classical and unconventional job interviews. It is your decision how you want to put together your own successful menu.

"PraxisCoaching" (Professional Counseling) – Learning Partnerships with Students

As a practical expert in business, culture, or politics you have a wide range and a rich treasure trove of experience which you would like to share with our students. In the context of TandemCoaching, every student chooses both a "ScienceCoach" (Academic Counselor) from the university and a "PracticeCoach" (Professional Counselor), with whom they discuss their personal and academic development both during their program of studies and regarding their later careers. 

Additional information on the PraxisCoaching (in German) can be found here

Student Projects

Where will you get to know students better than at work? Many companies and organizations use the possibility to carry out projects together with students in order to see for themselves which knowledge, skills, and commitment they have. To give you an idea of the projects implemented at ZU so far, we have here compiled a selection for you.
