Those who take up a practice-oriented study at a renowned business school like CBS usually do so for a good reason: to facilitate their career. If you look at the career paths of successful people, being lucky and the fortunate coinciding of random events will certainly come into play for some. But experience shows that planning is the key to success. We support you along the way – on the one hand through the contents of the courses but also outside the lectures. A prime example of this is the Career Services department at CBS International Business School.
Our colleagues support you in coming up with career ideas and then steering your career in the right direction – right from the start. To this end, we network with companies and have a CBS-exclusive internship and job vacancies exchange.
The CBS Career Services has been operating successfully for many years in order to expand the network of partner companies. Career Services staff meet with company representatives and advise them about the advantages that a cooperation with CBS could have for them. Several companies appreciate access to the excellently trained and motivated CBS students and provide internships and job offers. This means you have the opportunity to apply to companies that are specifically targeting CBS students.
Whether bachelor or master, English-language or German-language, most of the CBS study programmes include a compulsory internship, so you can put your freshly acquired knowledge to practice while contemporaneously becoming familiar with the daily grind at an interesting company. Career Services advises you on which internships, companies and departments at home or abroad best match your qualifications and career goals as well as when and how you should apply, which of course, you will have to do for yourself. After all, when it comes to presenting yourself, the best person for the job is you.
Because it’s their day-to-day work, our Career Services knows the job market for future specialists and managers at home and abroad and uses its network to secure job offers. We assist you in viewing and evaluating offers and optimizing your application documents. And we also have plenty of good tips when it comes to preparing for job interviews.
We regularly invite experts from the business world to present their companies and tell their own success stories. First-hand. How often do you get the opportunity to meet a respected founder personality anyway? Career Events are there for you to broaden your horizons, get ideas for your own future and perhaps even find inspiration for a thesis.
Why just attend networking and recruiting events when you can be the one organizing them? Our career event, University2Business (U2B) is organized by the students themselves. After being recruited, companies then present themselves to students, for example at a speed lunch; a workshop; a presentation and, of course, a small in-house trade fair. In addition, there are top-class guest speakers. Your commitment can become a real door opener, since you will be dealing with several responsible representatives from many HR departments – in person and not just via email application.
