According to the diagram, we will support you in four consecutive phases. However, it is your responsibility to take the initiative and set the pace of your “self-directed journey”.
First, we empower you to conduct a qualified self-assessment. Together with us, you will find out which professional position and industries or companies might suit you. For this purpose, we mainly offer personal interviews with experienced professionals:
The aim is for you to get to know yourself in the best possible way, i.e., identifying your strengths and weaknesses, desires, interests, values, and skills.
The focus is on professional issues such as: Do I have a chance of getting a specific job with my qualifications? What could my application strategy be? How do I get access to my desired companies?
Expand your capabilities
Phase 2 focuses on developing vocationally relevant key competencies, typically in organised workshops or seminars. Key competencies are understood to be abilities beyond the specialist competencies taught in lectures, i.e. specialised knowledge, scientific methods and subject-specific theoretical understanding. These include, for example:
e.g., Small Talks – The great art of small talk
e.g., How do I manage to be as prepared as possible for the examination date?

Build your network
To increase the likelihood that you will receive an interview invitation or even a job offer in response to an application, we organise various platforms in phase 3 that allow you to find out about potential employers and meet recruiters from relevant sectors. These include company presentations and workshops, as well as special events with EBS graduates.
Get your job
In the final step, the focus is on preparing and carrying out the actual application process. We will support you in revising your application documents and preparing you for your interview with the company. In addition, you will receive exclusive access to potential employers at career fairs, and specific job offers on the EBS job portal.
