International Career Fair

Information for Students and Graduates

The next International Career Fair will be held on Wednesday, October 25, 2023 at the IBZ.

Are you about to complete your studies or maybe already writing your thesis? Have you come to study at TU Dortmund University from abroad? Are you interested in the professional opportunities which companies from Dortmund and the region can offer you? Take your chance at the next International Career Fair and make direct contact with company representatives!

The International Career Fair at TU Dortmund University has a decisive advantage: In the run-up to the fair, students and graduates are matched with companies. Both groups are matched as closely as possible on the basis of individual competencies with CVs and job requirements. As a participating graduate, you receive a list of appointments with companies that match your profile before the fair. This gives the company representatives at the fair enough time to talk to you, and you can quickly get into direct contact with each other. Because both sides can find out about each other beforehand, the talks are very focused.

Talking Situation during the Career Fair 2019

For international students and graduates, participation in the fair is a great opportunity to get an interesting internship or a position as a working student, or to get their first job directly after graduation. This is especially interesting for students who are taking courses in natural sciences and technical subjects. Visiting the fair can open up interesting career opportunities for you!

Where will the career fair take place?

The fair will take place at the International Meeting Center (IBZ), Emil-Figge-Str. 59, at the North Campus of the TU Dortmund University. The International Meeting Center offers an excellent framework for networking the university with the regional economy. The construction of the International Meeting Center (IBZ) has already shown that science and business are moving closer together in Dortmund: the building was financed primarily by donations from companies in Dortmund and the region. The students of the TU Dortmund also made a major contribution to the center with their tuition fees.

What do the companies expect from you?

When you register, you indicate what qualifications you bring with you and what you are interested in; for example, internships or an entry-level job. The more specific your information, the better we can place you with the companies. To do this, you must agree to us passing on your data and your CV to the companies for the event.

What does participation in the event cost?

For the companies and students, participation in the career fair is free of charge.

What happens after the fair?

We would like to stay in contact with you after the fair and follow up on what has resulted from your contacts.
