The Career Development Centre is also the university’s point of contact with Alumni e.V. the Alumni Mentoring Programme. This is a joint initiative of the Alumni Association and the Career Centre. Past students mentor present students, answer questions, and support them in building up their network. The Career Development Centre sets up tandem arrangements between alumni and students, and regularly organises events or joint initiatives, including outdoor team training, a caving expedition and the Alumni Day. The aim of all joint activities (whether they take place on campus in Iserlohn, Berlin, or Hamburg, or are an off-campus, after-work event) is to support and expand the network between alumni and students.
