Career Center

The Career Center at Detmold University of Music aims to accompany and support students on their way into their professional lives. The musical world is one of constant change, the number of permanent positions is shrinking, and job requirements are changing, but nevertheless there are also completely new and multifaceted opportunities opening up for music school graduates. The Career Center will assist students to meet the new challenges of the musical marketplace, find careers that suit them and prepare for them. 
In doing so, it takes over three central responsibilities.

Inform: by providing focused information, the center will provide the student with an overview of career possibilities, practical opportunities, festivals, competitions and so on.

Advise: At individual counselling, the students have the opportunity to address their individual and unique questions concerning the topic of finding a career.

Qualify: skills that go beyond the curricula of the individual study courses are taught during seminars and workshops. These include topics such as applying for a job, business start-up, legal aspects, insurance, marketing oneself or even training for auditions

Optimal synergies are developed by the close collaboration between the departments of Musical Education, Music Management and Musicians‘ Health.
