Personal advice on careers and getting you that first job

We advise LMU students, doctoral candidates and alumni on all aspects of careers and career entry. And we do it in a number of ways. Seek out personal career advice for students or sign up to get your very own personal mentor. And there's more: We offer professional coaching to all LMU alumni as part of our program.

Our Career Events are primarily aimed at LMU students. Students from other Munich universities are also welcome to attend the open parts of the fairs and the Meet & Greet. Please understand that we can only offer the personal counseling services and seminars to LMU students.

Career-Mentoring Program

Is my dream job just a dream? Will I manage the transition from studying to working? How can I stand out in my job application? Which core qualifications should I have? How do I make career contacts? These are lots of questions.

Have you thought about reaching out to someone who is already in the job, industry or company that you'd like to be?

Pricing / Organization

One coaching hour (approx. 60 minutes) costs 120,- Euro plus VAT. The first hour serves to get to know each other and to answer any unanswered questions about the coaching process and is therefore free of charge.

Depending on the topic, a structured coaching process can last up to five hours. The duration of the coaching process and the individual appointments are coordinated between coach and coachee. The meetings take place in a central, quiet location in Munich or via video conference.What coaching is certainly not

Coaching is neither a form of training nor a formal professional attainment. Specific proposals for actions to be taken or solutions to problems are not offered by the coach and no typical "advice" is given. Coaching is not a substitute for psychological, psychotherapeutic or psychiatric advice or treatment.

Please note that we do not coach LMU employees in view of possible conflicting interests.
