Important aspects of the UZH Career Profiler

What is the UZH Career Profiler and who is behind it?

The UZH Career Profiler is a survey for UZH students on their career entry after or during their university studies. It pursues two main objectives:

  • It provides insights for the Career Services of the universities into the professional ideas of the students. From this, conclusions can be drawn as to how Career Service offers can be further adapted to the needs of the students.
  • It supports students in preparing their professional careers. By participating in the UZH Career Profiler, the aim is to encourage students to think about what is particularly important to them in terms of their future job.

The UZH Career Profiler is derived from an initiative of the of the Career Services Network Switzerland.
