Career Forum

In cooperation with faculties and interested seminars and institutes and in cooperation with the Career Service, the Alumni Network of the University of Bonn organizes the event series Career Forum. The aim is to provide students with insights into possible fields of activity and career profiles and to establish contacts between alumni and current students.

During the individual events, three to four alumni of a degree program at the University of Bonn report on their professional field of activity, their careers, and their experiences in choosing a profession and applying for a job.
