The International Career Service is also represented with a group in ILIAS. Here you can find further information, worksheets and links on the topic of application and internship.

We support our international students in writing a convincing application portfolio. No matter if spelling, grammar, structure or German application standards.

Whether internships, practical semesters, student jobs or positions for graduates. We will be happy to advise you with general information and support in your job search.

Would you like to talk about your current application process? Do you have a question about an interview, would you like to take the opportunity to practice an interview with someone?

With MeetBUSINESS, Meet IT, Meet ING, Kompass and vitamin B, Heilbronn University offers a considerable number of company contact fairs. And they all pursue a common goal: to bring our students in contact with regional companies.

Maybe you will find your internship or future employer there. So keep yourself up to date.

Whether job interviews, online interviews or trade fairs: a confident and self-assured appearance can be important for your own professional success. We want to support our international students in positioning themselves in the best possible way.

The International Career Service organises the „International Career Weekend“.

Whether for an internship or a career start: the application is both a prerequisite and a cornerstone. However, depending on the culture, the presentation of a successful portfolio is often different. Thus, international students often apply in the way they are familiar with from their home countries. The result: many applicants fail because of cultural differences and not because of their competences.

To break through this, HHN runs the International Career Service (ICS). The support offered is diverse with the recent "International Career Weekend" being the latest added offer. Head Miriam Borgert explains: “This offer is a completely new concept. Through several workshops and voluntary discussion rounds, students receive tips, advice and information on how the application process works in Germany.“

In the first round, 15 internationals benefited from this offer. “The students learned how to present themselves convincingly with their application portfolio and what it takes to stay confident and calm during a job interview.“
