Vocational guidance

Service Description

Making the right decision is not easy - especially when it concerns the choice of career and thus one's own future. Many questions arise on the way to professional life. That's why there are a variety of supportive career counseling options for those seeking advice and their parents.

Vocational counseling supports you with questions concerning the choice of a profession. In individual discussions, career wishes, interests and strengths are clarified in order to find suitable professions.
This can be followed by the placement of a suitable apprenticeship.

If you are looking for a job or a training position, the Regional Employment Agency or the Job Center will support you. They are responsible for all tasks of job placement and job promotion.

You can also find information on training positions at Vocational guidance.

Information on training and continuing education opportunities is also available from the Chambers of Industry and Commerce and the Chambers of Crafts in Thuringia.

The Thuringian Agency for the Recruitment of Skilled Workers (ThAFF) provides job and training offers from Thuringian companies for Thuringia as a place to work and live.

In addition, there are a large number of other job exchanges, both regional and supra-regional, which can usually be found on the Internet with appropriate search queries.
