Make contacts and multiply your career opportunities

Networking not only enriches your private life, but also helps you access the job market and develop professionally. Contacts with people who are already one step further in life are extremely valuable. This is because employers prefer to fill vacancies through their own network: employees, employee recommendations or (former) interns.

Committed networkers

  • are happy to share their own experiences,
  • show exciting perspectives,
  • open doors …

… and because their network experiences them as attentive, committed and competent people, they in turn are recommended for exciting tasks.

One recommendation to get started is to actively use a professional or sector network as well as an overarching network to think outside the box (e.g. through involvement in a university group).
