We support you!
The Career Servcie advises and supports students of the Dresden School of Management in all questions concerning career planning, applications and the search for internships or graduate positions. Self-motivation, initiative and interest in industry-relevant topics are the most important key criteria that students should bring along for a successful career start. We support our students right from the start of their studies in building up a valuable network for the future, and we are committed to doing so:
- networking in all study-specific sectors, such as social services, management, marketing, tourism and hotel
- the early involvement of students and business economists in real practical projects
- individual service of our consulting team

What our students say
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.
The annual Career Fair and Part-Time Job Fair
Events such as our Career Fair and the Part-Time Job Fair enable our students the opportunity to establish local contacts with industry-related businesses and to expand their personal network.
Would you like to know which companies have visited us in the last year? Here you will find detailed information about our Career Fair.
Tips and tricks for a perfect application
In additional events, and partly within your lectures, you will regularly receive information regarding opportunities concerning your career perspectives, training in small groups and individual consultation. These include, for instance: presentation skills, job interview training, information on the use of social networks, business etiquette, etc.
Application tips can also be found on the internet:
Our Career Service Desk is happy to assist in checking your application documents in both, English and German. In addition, we also give tips about application methods in foreign countries.
Direct contact to the students.
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.
-> Tip from our Career Services: make use of these opportunities to make contact with potential employers and introduce yourself.
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.
