Career Service

The Career Service is a central element of our study model and acts as a link between students and partner companies.

From the first day on, we will assist and guide you in your career planning. Throughout the entire degree programme, the members of the Career Service team will guide students and make sure that partner companies and students get to know each other at various events such as job fairs, guest lectures, career seminars, etc. The Career Service’s task is to compare the demands of the partner companies with the desires of the students, which leads ideally to a match.

There are various possibilities for companies to cooperate with HdWM. You can become a partner company, hand in topics for a case study, be a sponsor or donate a scholarship or get to know our students at job fairs and events. We would be happy to customize your individual cooperation package that meets your expectations and needs.

They can ask for a private talk with the chair of their programme, the Career inclusive representatives or the Career Service. Furthermore, there are two guidance counselors who are contact persons for confidential and open conversations.

Equal Opportunity Commissioners

Among others, the task of the equal opportunity commissioners is to support the equal distribution of men in women in all departments. Another important concern is to achieve work-family balance for students and employees. Furthermore, they provide measures for students with disabilities to give them equal chances to successfully finish their studies at HdWM. The equal opportunity commissioners develop measures for “hidden talents” to support them on their way to graduation.

Career Inclusive

We are always happy to lend an ear to students with handicaps, e.g. bodily, chronic or mental illnesses.

Discrete, confidential, individual and unbureaucratic, the team is there to assist students to overcome hinderances that may keep them from successfully completing their course of study. Along with longer time to work on exams, they can also arrange coaching through a cooperation agreement with the Karlsruhe Institute (KI). Also, financial support through the Deutschlandstipendium are awarded specifically to students with MS, dyslexia, reading and writing disabilities, trauma, depression, learning disabilities, or similar conditions.

Of course, the information will not be disclosed to third parties – what is discussed remains strictly between the students and the Career inclusive team.
