What drives us
Institute of the German Economy outlines a historic turnaround for the German labor market in three scenarios. The reason for this is the transition of the baby boomers into retirement. The forecast in the
middle scenario, which is particularly plausible, is a decline in the number of employed skilled workers by 3.1 million by 2040, which corresponds to 8.8%.
- This has also long since reached the universities. In order to remain competitive and attract the best brains, future-oriented courses of study are increasingly becoming international and introduced in English. As a result As a result, the proportion of foreign students is particularly high in the most sought-after disciplines.
- Excellent career prospects are the main criterion for the decision to study in Germany and motivate students to overcome hurdles in their studies. However, despite their professional qualifications, international students are often uncertain about their career prospects if they are not (yet) sufficiently familiar with the German labor market and the standards of the application process.

This is because the impression of being If the impression that they are not wanted on the labor market and do not receive adequate job offers becomes solidified, this is a reason for about 1/3 of the students to turn their backs on Germany.
- Another central part of the International Career Service Rhine-Main (ICS RM) is the interface to the economy and public administration of the region represents. Through an external advisory board with high-ranking representatives from business, public administration and politics as well as an operational round table, a well-established structure is to be built up in the coming years that will act as a bridge in the transition of graduates with a migration history to companies and public administration in the Rhine-Main region. To this end, existing measures are to be expanded and new ones developed between universities and business and public administration. The IWAK is responsible for the technical support and control of the bridge to be built. In the course of the project, the developed bridge function is to serve as a blueprint for the establishment of suitable structures in Central and Northern Hesse.
This means a great loss for the German labor market and the future development of our society!
We, the RheinMain universities, would like to use the International Career Service Rhein-Main to describe this development in positive terms. For this, we are looking for strong, future-oriented partners.
