Working part-time during your studies could offer a lot of benefits. However, for many incoming CBS students, the big question remains whether their studies will allow ample time for a part-time student job or not. There really is no sweeping answer to this question, since the preparation time necessary for studying both before and after lectures varies greatly. However, experience shows that most employment-seeking CBS students manage to find time for a job. As for the type of job, this is up to each student individually. Particularly attractive are, of course, long-term jobs as a student employee in one of the well-known corporations that can be found in and around Cologne. Certainly included here are names like Ford, Bayer, REWE, RWE or AXA. But there are also lesser well-known companies from a wide range of industries based in Cologne, which makes this location particularly attractive for hard-working students. For those looking for an internship as part of their CBS studies, there are numerous opportunities right here in Cologne.
CBS has its own department for handling matters like fostering contact with local and internationally operating companies. That’s why CBS Career Service has its very own online job portal with a plethora of vacancies for students' jobs, internships, or entry-level positions. Furthermore, it also provides a wide range of support for getting in touch with companies on your own.
But don’t worry. Even side jobs that aren’t related to your course of study are completely fine. This might be, for example, a job in one of Cologne’s thousands of restaurants and bars. So whether you’re serving food in a restaurant or Kölsch from the tap at the RheinEnergie stadium – it’s always a lot of fun at places where you can get to know interesting people. In addition to the CBS job exchange, Stellenwerk Köln could also be used to find many student job offers.
