Career Talks

Is your company looking for academic specialists? As part of your job at a university or research institution, do you support your students in entering the job market? 

We show the young academics at Brandenburg's universities and research institutions that Brandenburg has much more to offer than recreation and leisure at 3,000 lakes. Within the framework of sector-specific keynote speeches, we provide an overview of the diversity of sectors and companies in the state and highlight various career perspectives. 

The Career Talks are limited to one and a half to two hours and are complemented by one or two company speakers, depending on the focus and group of participants. Interested companies are welcome to join us as practice partners at one of the upcoming events and present their company directly. Please contact us!

"Docs on Tour" - Academic recruitment of skilled workers in your region.

The Wirtschaftsförderung Land Brandenburg GmbH (WFBB) supports young academics in their career entry into the Brandenburg economy. Within the framework of organised company visits, they are given the opportunity to get to know companies in the state of Brandenburg that are interesting for their field of study, as well as different occupational fields and professional development opportunities in the region.

"Students on Tour" - Getting to know the business world

Together with regional partners, the WFBB offers students the opportunity to get to know the Brandenburg economy. On the one hand, the companies can present themselves to the Brandenburg students as future employers with their fields of work, departments and production facilities, and on the other hand, the prospective graduates are given the opportunity to find out about internships, dissertations and entry-level opportunities from the potential employers. In addition, the regions will be presented as a liveable place to work and live during the tours.


Due to the current health situation, these events are not currently offered.
