Career workshops and tools

Many ISS students left their previous jobs and look for new challenges.

Some of our MA graduates move on within the academic world and pursue a PhD, others look for a job in the development sector.

ISS has a special Career Services Corner in the library. Here you will find interesting books on career planning and networking, flyers with tips where to search for a job, announcements of presentations and adverts on a notice board.

On a regular basis, ISS alumni share their experiences with current students.

Destinations - online tool for career management for current students

Are you looking for an internship or do you want to prepare yourself for your next job application?

Destinations offers students a great deal of helpful resources on everything concerning their careers. The tool covers topics from assessing your skills, finding a suitable profession and guides you through the entire application process. All information presented is supported by video clips, self-analysis exercises, other assignments  and downloadable text files with example application letters and similar useful documents.  

Career Planning Workshop

ISS offers students a Career Planning Workshop.

The workshop consists of three sessions and focuses on a personal SWOT analysis, CV writing, preparing for interviews and networking. The Workshop can be done several times throughout the year and is free accessible for all ISS students!

On a regular basis we organize ‘Career Talks’ where ISS alumni and current students and staff share their experiences and steps in their careers.

Students meet and discuss with ISS alumnus Jerome Surur, Deputy Governor in the Eastern Equatoria State in South Sudan (May 2013).
