International Students

You are an international student at WU and want to find out about the Austrian job market? We are at your service!


Do you want to get in contact with employers or find a job? On our online job portal "Jobbörse", you can find positions for graduates and young professionals, internships and part-time jobs. German is the corporate language of most Austrian employers and is therefore required. Still, each year there are also a few international companies that do not have German language skills as a prerequisite. If a job listing is written in German language though, your application needs to be written in German.

At the Breakfast and the Skill Seminars on the fourth and fifth day, you can get in touch with companies. Feel free to ask questions in English.

Talks and company interviews will be held in German language at these events, but feel free to ask questions in English language.
