Who can get our coaching free of charge?

Our coaching is for all academics who are job seekers or registered unemployed. Or for all who are at the end of their studies.

If you are currently in an employment relationship with no end in sight (through termination or expiration of the contract) you will most likely not get a voucher for our coaching.

Find out what you’re made of.

After a comprehensive analysis of your initial situation, our coaches work with you to develop an action plan. In personal sessions, you discuss the most important issues step by step. Homework and exercises make you fit for the start of a new job!

100 % free with a voucher

The support is provided by the German Agentur für Arbeit – employment agency – in the form of a voucher (AVGS = activation and placement voucher). You can redeem this voucher with us as your training provider.

We charge our costs directly to the Agentur für Arbeit. You do not have to worry about anything.
