Career Services for KLU students

Kühne Logistics University

Our Career Services team offers a unique program that targets both your personal development and your contact with future employers. The Career Services team facilitates connections and trains and empowers you to identify and pursue your professional aspirations.

Career & Professional Development Program

The Career & Professional Development Program consists of 11 workshop modules. It is designed to help you find answers to vital questions that will position you to actively pursue and manage your professional career goals. For example: What am I good at and what are my professional aspirations? What position/occupation do I want to target? How can I position myself as a successful applicant and differentiate myself from others? What does it take to prepare winning application documents? How can I access the “hidden” labor market? 

Your career is like a journey. In order to find the right path, you first need to know which goal you want to reach. The first step in identifying your goal is to understand who you are (your personality assessment). As a takeaway, you will not only have a clearer picture of yourself and your preferences, but you will also be in a position to clearly communicate this vision. 

Apart from your degrees, there are certain skills that you enjoy using most and are best at. If you know what they are and can employ them, your work will be the right match. This also holds true for your interests. If you are interested in automobiles, it would be better to look for a job with BMW than with Coca Cola. Knowing your skills and interests is not only important for knowing what your dream profession could be, but is also a prerequisite for being able to persuade your future employer as to why you are the perfect match for a job.

Based on the findings of the two previous modules, all results will be merged and we will identify your first occupational options. Which positions would fit you best? Until you can name the career path you want to follow, you can’t take the strategic steps necessary to position yourself as a competitive applicant.

Now that you know what position you are hunting for, you need to understand who makes the rules of the game. What kind of attitude and behavior are expected of you as a job or internship hunter? How do you create an action plan?

Which are the best resources for your internship/job hunt? Which application channels will be most successful or should be combined? The outcome of this module will be group presentations and recommendations on a variety of research and application channels, as well as resources. The findings will be collected and combined into a reference file that the whole class can use.

Your CV is your basic homework. This is the first piece of information most employers see about you. If you don’t meet their expectations, you will impact your chances for employment negatively. In this workshop, we will train you to create a winning CV.

Writing an outstanding cover letter is crucial for business school students, since the competition is tough. To be good is not enough. You need to be able to communicate your matching qualities in writing, in a focused and attractive form to readers. You need to grab their attention and persuade them to reply via email or pick up the phone to invite you for an interview.

This course provides the necessary networking skills for young professionals and helps participants in improving their social skills. The course covers a variety of situations and practice exercises, and is intended as a quick-start guide to life-long networking.

Presenting yourself at your best during job interviews is a crucial skill you need to master in order to build your career. Understanding the interview process and preparing ahead can have astounding effects on the way you feel and present yourself during a job interview.

In preparation for the Career Fair at the KLU in January 2016, we are offering a workshop for you to be able to make most of such a fair or any other networking event, you will be invited to attend in the future. The Recruiter’s Dinner, hosted by the KLU during the fair, will be your chance to representing KLU while networking with the recruiters of interest to you.

This voluntary module will give you a practical introduction to the art of proper etiquette, manners, and intercultural communication in business conditions. For successful business outcomes you will learn how to apply the right manners, and how to respect the unwritten rules of cultural differences in a proper way. Knowing the rules gives you more self-confidence, but also allows you to bend them.

It was Oscar Wilde who once said: 'Be yourself; everybody else is already taken'. It turns out, that from a personal branding perspective, 'being yourself' is excellent career advice, too. Your personal brand is a reflection of who you are and how you are seen by others. What valuable skills and experiences do you have that set you apart? How can you relate this information so that it is relevant, interesting and visible for the hiring managers you want to attract / the customers you would like to serve?  In this all-day workshop, you will explore how to align what you are good at and enjoy doing with what your choice employers / customers need and really care about. Building on the outcomes of previous career workshops at the KLU, you will examine how to leverage your personal brand in your job search approach and reflect what real life and online activities can support you in this endeavor.

KLU Internship Program

The KLU Internship Program allows you to put your theoretical knowledge to the test, broaden your know-how, and explore positions/occupations of interest to you. Career Services will assist you during the orientation and application phase and provide opportunities to network with potential employers.
