Career Service

The Career Service of the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg is the central contact point for questions about career entry and students' careers during and after their studies. Our goal is to centrally present offers for internships, further trainings and jobs in Magdeburg and its surrounding area for every field of studies. The pool of diverse offers creates an interface between students and companies, facilitates a professional approach and is a pillar for further steps of application, internships, final projects and possibilities of student financing.
