Career Whispers

Exclusive evening with a company

Get to know your potential future employer now. The Career Service invites companies to the university so that students can get to know them in an exclusive and informal atmosphere. Through personal contact with the company, you can also increase your chances of being hired for jobs that would otherwise not be published.



Logo Career Whispers

Find out more about development opportunities, working atmosphere, everyday working life or social benefits in the company.

From the summer semester 2020 on you can find the dates on this page.

Current dates can be found in the HTW calendar of events, where you can register as well.

Since companies are primarily looking for German-speaking employees, the event will be held in German language.

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 of networking. We would like to pursue this study and begin with the cooking together. Our idea, which we have in common with the Stura / Sport 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 and just have to organise the trip to the respective company yourself

Current dates can be found in the HTW calendar of events, where you can register as well. Since companies are primarily looking for German-speaking employees, the event will be held in German language.

Even more, we would like to give start-up companies a space to introduce themselves. As in the years before, we will focus on the individual exchange at the exhibition stand. We will remain true to the short distances to the individual company representatives through the presence in our main building of the HTW. In addition, this year there will be a speed dating with selected companies.
