Helpful Tips

If you are unable to attend an event for important reasons, please cancel your registration as soon as possible. Unexcused absences mean that you can no longer register for further events yourself online, but only after a personal conversation at the Career Center.

If all seats have already been allocated, click on "Warteliste". Since it unfortunately happens again and again that registered persons do not appear to the events, it is worthwhile to come on good luck to the meeting. It is often still possible to participate spontaneously.
