Employability (made) in Germany – Last stop: Pittsburgh!

Our last stop of Employability (made) in Germany brought us to to our partner university the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on October 18, 2019, for a networking event focusing on Germany-oriented careers. Jessica Sun, University of Pittsburgh, led through the program. Carsten Schröder, Vice President for Knowledge Transfer, Cooperation and Innovation at FH Münster University of Applied Sciences, and Dietmar Rieg and Rachel Mauer, Presidents of the German American Chamber of Commerce in New York and in Pittsburgh delivered the remarks. They each highlighted the transatlantic connections and academic exchange between Germany and the United States.

Five German companies of the Pittsburgh area –Aldi, Covestro, Foerster, Lanxess and Leybold – joined us. They provided all students in the audience with the opportunity to learn about their companies in an intimate setting, talk about internships and career paths. The event included three sessions of rotating roundtable discussions followed by a networking hour. Traditional German snacks from Hofbräuhaus and Penn Brewery were provided to the participants during the event.

With the event at the University of Pittsburgh we concluded our event series „Employability (made) in Germany“, supported by Wunderbar Together, by the German Center for Research and Innovation, by the German American Chambers of Commerce in different areas across the United States and by countless German-rooted companies along the way. We can look back to a successful year of German-American friendship, thanks to the help and support we received from the respective participating institutions.

Please stay tuned for our upcoming key take-aways from the „Employability (made) in Germany“ tour 2019!
