What our students say

I was lucky enough to have the support of the Career Service in finding an internship, especially regarding nowadays situation with the virus. They had not only assisted, advised and helped me with the creation of the necessary documents, but also guided me concerning the interview, having the chance to improve and put a finishing touch through a trial interview, in order to be ready for the real one. With that being said, I got an internship position in less than one week.

Matches made just for you Individual career counselling

It is particularly important to us that you find a suitable job once you have completed your studies. To support you in doing so is a labour of love.

In your first year of studies you can expect an event in which you will be informed by an external recruitment consultant with extensive experience in the tourism, event, marketing and hotel industries on different career paths. It will give you the general idea on how you will start to plan your career. They will take typical career events from successful employees and managers and provide insight into how they were able to achieve these goals.

Next, you will be required to write down your thoughts and ideas on skills you still might be lacking. Later on, you will analyse ways to fill these gaps. You will be supported by the study programme director, professors of the university and the staff of our Career Services.

We maintain a broad network of contacts within the tourism, event and hotel industries. Upon request, we would be happy to establish contacts to alumni and partner companies on your behalf.

At our Open Houses, as well as within regular lectures for our students, graduates from our university report on their job experiences. We will also provide you with corporate presentations to illustrate prospects for a successful career start.

Very popular Networking Events

We offer a behind the scenes look at the different departments of tourism, event and hotel industries with our “Career vis á vis" events. Here you can have your questions answered directly by the representatives from different companies within a small group. In the past we have had, for example, the Sales & Marketing Manager (Gewandhaus Dresden), the Front Office Manager (NH Hotel Dresden) and the Controller (Kempinski Taschenbergpalais) on hand to answer any of your questions regarding the hotel industry.

Florian Leisentritt is the Hotel Manager of the Gewandhaus Hotel in Dresden and gave insights into the Sales & Marketing areas of the famous hotel.

The Career vis á vis” is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring students to gain an insight into the respective department within a small group where they might even meet their future employers. I myself have more than ten years of experience in the hotel industry and am always happy to talk to interested students.

Hotel Manager/ Gewandhaus Hotel Dresden

With his company hpc Bohne – Strategiepartner der Hotellerie he advises our students during the career planning events:

You can never have too much hands on experience. Also, I would advise you to use your free time intensively and get to know different hotel concepts and the diversity of the industry as a whole, but also the unusual destinations and cultures. As for your career and especially the choice of the “matching” employer, it pays to be active, to create networks and to engage in gathering contacts at trade shows and industry events. Get an idea of your options and be open to new ideas, and above all: Always have fun in and with this industry.
