CONTACT24 – Workshops

To help you prepare for the application process, CONTACT2024 will offer various workshops on the topics of career planning, career entry and the application process. In addition, two job fair preparation courses will also be offered on April 4th and April 10th 2024.

All workshops take place in small groups in a relaxed atmosphere and are free of charge for all participants.

As we want to ensure efficient training, the number of participants is limited. Places will be allocated online in advance and only remaining places can be booked on the day of the job fair. As the courses are usually booked up very quickly, early registration is recommended. In order to offer all interested parties an opportunity, each person may register for a maximum of one workshop!

Update 13.04.: The workshops offered by Hesse/Schrader, DKFZ Career Service, ZS Associates and Scitaris are already fully booked.
