Activities of the Career Centre of the University of Maribor
Individual and group career counselling
Career counselling allows students, graduates and high school students to improve their employability skills and competencies and enhance their knowledge of career planning.
Our counsellors employ various counselling techniques and tools (questionnaires, etc.) that help counselees to attain self-knowledge, and help students, graduates and high school students in making career decisions. In addition to counselling students and graduates on how to write a cover letter and CV, how to design their career portfolios and how to conduct themselves in job interviews, our counsellors also provide information on the job market and various ways to approach the job hunt.
Our career counsellors are available during office hours.
