International Career Service Rhine-Main

Pooling resources and creating synergies

The needs and requirements of migrant students [1] are largely congruent across the universities with regard to career entry. In order to pool resources and utilize synergies, we, the Rhine-Main universities - Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, Goethe University Frankfurt, Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Rhine-Main University of Applied Sciences and Darmstadt University of Technology - have joined forces to concentrate career orientation and career entry offers for migrant students in a modular structure in a International Career Service Rhine-Main (ICS RM) and to offer them jointly to the students of all partner universities.

As part of a grant from the European Social Fund, we aim to develop target group-specific services and establish them as a long-term platform in the region. By working together, we can provide a much greater variety of services for migrant students so that they can take advantage of a wide range of tailored and needs-based offers. We provide a wide range of services, including job application advice, workshops for starting a career, in-depth insights into corporate cultures, start-ups and social entrepreneurship

The universities from Mainz are partners of Matching Week and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is also an associated partner of the ICS RM.
