Career planning

What does ‘career’ mean?

Career can mean to develop further professionally with existing skills and acquired knowledge and to plan one’s own professional development and advancement.  

Career can also mean to be professionally successful with enthusiasm and commitment.

What does the Office of Career Planning have to offer to students and graduates?

We support and advise you on how to get a job that suits you.

We can support you in the following steps of career planning:

  • Defining your goal: where are you, and where to you want to get to?
  • Analysing the job market
  • Developing strategies to reach your goal

The final semesters of your academic programme are the ideal time to think more concretely about your career, and to get independent advice and support.

The office of career planning supports students and graduates in these three fields:

  • Information and advice/guidance
  • Qualification
  • Contact with potential employers

This field is meant for students and graduates who are unsure of their own careere plans and require specific support.

A special offer of this office is individual, process-related coaching and guidance. We also offer advice on getting a Ph.D.


Every semester, the office of career planning offers a programme of events with lectures and workshops around the topics of career and professional development. These events are in German.

Contact to potential employers

On the one hand, we actively establish contacts to employers in the social sector, health sector, and education sector.

On the other hand, the office of career planning is also the point of contact for employers who wish to establish links with ASH. The office published job advertisements on its homepage, on its notice board, and through an e-mail list.
