VIRTUAL Career Days 2020

​Career Booster German/Y Goes virtual!

This year, the Goethe-Institut is organizing two back to back virtual Career Days on November 5th and November 6th for both high school and college students in the USA. Representatives of German business, universities and foundations will inform about study and career opportunities in Germany and with German in the U.S. 

This event will take place each day from 11am - 4pm EST and be held in English.

  • 15-minute live workshops will offer information on topics related to studying and working in Germany or with German in the US, including how to best prepare yourself. Each workshop will allow participants to actively submit their questions in the chat to be answered in a 5 minute Q&A at the end of each session.
  • Each day will feature a live panel discussion where speakers who have studied abroad or made a career with German or in Germany will discuss their experiences and provide tips for those interested. Students will be able to pose their questions for the concluding Q&A directly into the chat. 
  • Each day will end with a prize raffle. High school classes who tune in will be in the running to win fun goodie bags for their entire class, as well as their German teacher receiving a scholarship for a professional development course in Germany next summer! College students have the chance to win a scholarship for an online language course of their choosing.
German and international firms, universities, foundations, exchange organizations will be presenting various career path models, professional trainee and university degree programs, internship opportunities and scholarships.
