On each campus, faculty advisors and career counselors advise students on career planning issues and job opportunities. Individual campuses establish a variety of programs from Career Days with speakers on various areas of interest, to workshops on resume writing, and job interviewing techniques. Our Campus career counselor are knowledgeable about the legal requirements of the host country with regard to employment. She assists qualified SIU students with information concerning internships and forming the links between academic and business life.
Each Schiller graduate is urged to contact the Placement Office on the campus from which he or she is graduating no later than the beginning of the last semester of class work. This will enable the placement personnel to have sufficient time to work with the student in preparing a resume or Curriculum Vitae and with assistance in using the Internet and other methods to search out opportunities and potential job positions.
The annual Career Day at the Heidelberg SIU campus is very much a Schiller-Alumni event: several Schiller graduates come back to school for a day to talk about the sunny and dark sides of their jobs, to give presentations of career opportunities at the companies where they are employed, or just to share some advice to the jobseekers of tomorrow.
Interested alumni should contact their own former Schiller campus, or the campus nearby, for such a presentation, which will be much appreciated by the current students from our big Schiller family.
