Feedback from participants
“I had the great honour of participating in the Welcome Center Rhine-Neckar’s coaching program. I have learned how to network, and I am getting help revising my CV. I can highly recommend this program to all internationals who are interested in a job in Germany and don’t yet know where to start”.
Youye Song, MBA Candidate, Mannheim Business School
“Based on my own experience, I can fully recommend individual coaching. At the beginning of the interview, my CV was carefully checked. Then I received a lot of valuable advice on how to improve my CV. In addition, I had the opportunity to ask questions that had long been of interest to me for example on applications and on how to approach companies. I am extremely grateful for the support I received through the coaching of the “International Students Welcome” initiative.”

ISW is presented to you in cooperation with the following partners:
“Bridging the gap” for international economists
Despite having a university degree, people who come to us from abroad are often not well integrated into the local labour market. In order to counter this situation, the city of Mannheim, in cooperation with the IQ Network Baden-Württemberg, the Graduate School Rhine-Neckar and the Rhine-Neckar Welcome Center, have developed this qualification program to facilitate the integration of the participants into the local labour market and to increase their chances of finding a position in accordance with their qualifications. For further information please contact: Rolf Schäfer (Fachbereich für Wirtschafts- und Strukturförderung (Tel.: +49 621 293-3355, email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
“Bridging the gap” for international engineers
In October 2017 we have started our qualification program for engineers with an international university degree.
The Graduate School Rhein-Neckar GmbH in cooperation with the Office for Economic Development in Mannheim and the Welcome Center Rhine-Neckar have developed a qualification program for engineers with a foreign university degree. This seminar aims at preparing international engineers for the German job market, so that they can find a position according to their qualification.
It is financed by the program “Integration through Qualification” of the IQ Network.
