Recruiting Fairs

Each year, various recruiting fairs take place at WHU. They give companies a platform to present themselves and meet interested students of different programs. The fairs "Career Day", "Master Your Career" and "Founders Career Day" focus on different target groups and offer a broad variety of networking and recruiting opportunities.

Career Day

Every year in the fall term students and companies meet on the WHU campus for the annual "Career Day". Aim of this career event is to give companies and students a platform to get to know each other and identify potential partners for future cooperation for example in form of an internship, a master thesis project or a job after graduation. This event is designed for companies that do not support the WHU as founder or benefactors wanting to get to know WHU and our students. The program includes short presentations, career fair, pre-scheduled interviews and career speed dating. Additionally, participating companies get access to our online CV-database "eProfiles" with CVs of students graduating the next year. Students of the Bachelor-, Master-, MBA program as well as Doctoral Students and Exchange Students from our more than 195 parter universities are invited to the "Career Day".  

You are interested in participating in the "Career Day"? Don't hesitate to contact us! 

Master Your Career

In the spring term, Master Your Career offers companies that belong to the circle of founders and benefactors of WHU various opportunities to get in touch with students. Short presentations, career fair, workshops, business dinner, on campus recruiting and career speed dating constitute great platforms for recruiting and networking. Master your Career - the name already suggests it – is designed with a focus on the Master and MBA programs. However, students of the Bachelor programs, Doctoral students and Exchange students are also invited for selected activities.

Founders Career Day

New event first organized in 2011: WHU Alumni presented their Start-Ups on the campus in Vallendar. After short presentations of the participating companies, an informal fair gives representatives and students a platform for networking. Additionally, career speed dating sessions offer both sides the opportunity for a quick chemistry check. The event is open for all students and aimes to bring Alumni Entrepreneurs and hoping-to-be Entrepreneurs together for fruitful exchange and the initiation of successful cooperation. This may well be in form of internships or jobs for WHU students and graduates as well as in form of support for students with own business ideas. As most internet Start-Ups work very internationally, this event attracts many students in search for international internships. After very positive feedback from both sides we plan to integrate this event as a regular in the annual Career Services calendar at WHU.

„Master Your Career is a great platform for students to meet with various company representatives at one spot. It’s a good opportunity for both companies and students to discuss positions, expectations and future plans. All in all it’s an eventful 'not-to-be-missed' day."
