Healthy networking

Cooking & Networking in Dresden companies

Cooking, eating delicious food, and at the same time networking with businesspersons - what else can you wish for?

According to a new study, networking in the canteen is the most successful approach to networking. Accordingly, we have developed a concept with the student council and the university health management, which brings several advantages at once:

  1. You get cooking ideas, including recipes for cooking for free
  2. You can try these recipes for yourself and with others right away
  3. You will also get to know different companies and representatives while cooking and eating together
  4. You don't have any costs/expenses. You only have to organize the trip to the respective company.

Upcoming dates will be published in the HTW event calendar, where you can register as well. Since companies are primarily looking for German-speaking employees, the event will take place in German.

Job Shadowing at companies

Do you want to bring more practice into your everyday study life?

Take part in job shadowing and be a ("shadow") guest in a Dresden company of your choice for one day!

On the side of an employee, you will get to know the company in (almost) all its facets in a short time and gain insights into the fields of work, corporate culture, and product range!

Along the way, you'll find out what the local coffee tastes like, what offers there are for employees and whether the cafeteria can keep up with the canteen at home.

As an HTW student, you can find out more about the participating companies via OPAL and register for an appointment.

Job Shadowing is organized by the Career Service of TU Dresden as part of the joint project Students@Company of TU Dresden and HTW Dresden.
