The Career Service Center (CSC) provides professional assistance in individual counseling sessions of Bachelor and Master students on topics revolving around your personal career, the planning of it and also possible application strategies. The one-hour long career counseling session is free of charge and includes, if needed, a comprehensive and in-depth review of your application documents (CV, cover letter, etc.). Furthermore, you can learn about and discuss your career opportunities and perspectives.
Individual Counseling Session
Schedule an Appointment
Appointments by arrangement. To register for individual career counseling, contact us by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone +41 61 207 08 67.
If you are interested in a counseling session, please send us (no later than 24 hours before the appointment) your current CV, a cover letter for a job application and a job ad which has caught your interest. You may also bring along employment reference letters and other certificates you would like us to have a look at. Regarding your CV and your cover letter, it is fine if they are still only drafts.
In order to prepare us optimally for the individual career counseling, we always need a CV (even if no check-up of the application dossier is to be carried out) and your main questions (if possible) by e-mail in advance.
