digital career paths "it's a match"

On 20 April 2021, our digital career path "it's a match" took place. More than 60 companies such as BASF, Infineon, or Würth and many hidden champions from the region or medium-sized companies from all over Germany participated. 

369 talents were swiping through company profiles and liked or disliked them. The result was almost 1000 matches with companies and around 425 realized dates.

Statements on the last fair from HTW students:

Julius, WINF:
"Top format, I had great conversations and interesting job offers".
Felix, BWL:
"It was nice that companies already knew me through my online profile and that it was possible to have good conversations directly.


The date for the following career paths "It's a match" comings soon.

Healthy networking

Cooking/networking in Dresden companies

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

According to a new study, networking in the canteen is the most successful approach to networking. We want to pursue this study and begin with cooking together. Our idea, which we have in common with the Stura / Sports department, is to kill two birds with one stone:

  1. You get cooking ideas, including recipes for cooking for a small amount of money
  2. You can try these recipes for yourself right away
  3. You will also get to know different companies / especially their kitchens and representatives
  4. You don't have any costs/expenses. You only have to organize the trip to the respective company.

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

Company Contact Fair "CAREER PATHS" 02.11.2021

On 02.11.2021 our established company contact fair "Career Paths" took place again. 44 well-known companies were present. Students, graduates and graduates took advantage of the opportunity to inquire about working student positions, internships, dissertations and entry-level opportunities. It was worth mentioning that we were able to hold the fair directly at the HTW in a small setting and that most of the contact exchange took place at the virtual fair stands. Thanks to the virtual platform "trember", there were no limits to the experience for students and graduates. They were able to get a comprehensive impression of the individual companies through a wide range of information, videos and other presentations and talk directly to the company exhibitors about their future career prospects.
