Quiz regarding career start

Ready for the working world?

The hidden job market includes vacancies that are not publicly advertised but are communicated through networks, personal contacts or recommendations. The number of jobs filled via the hidden job market has risen sharply. Therefore, it is even more important to network and establish contacts in order to participate in the hidden job market and thus increase your chances when looking for a job.

Take advantage of the opportunities at TU Dortmund University to make your first contacts during your studies!

Offers in the field of networking

Payrolls usually start with the gross wage. Taxes and social security contributions (such as health and care insurance, pension insurance and unemployment insurance) are deducted from this and the net wage is obtained, which is paid to the employee.

There are various gross-net calculators online that calculate the net wage. In most cases, factors such as tax class or church tax, etc. are also taken into account.

Tipp: Particularly when starting out on your career, it is worth calculating roughly how high your living expenses will be. This is a good preparation for your salary negotiation.

Unless otherwise specified in the announcement, a complete application includes:

  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Certificates

You can find help with setting up and designing your documents in various workshops that are held regularly at TU Dortmund University. Have a look in the "Applying" section!
