Job search

How should I start the job search?

First of all, find the area, job type, field you are most interested in. Then you should write a strong CV. Find our guidance video on Moodle here!

What platforms should I use to search?

You can use several online platforms in Hungary to find the best fit for you (e.g. LinkedIN, Profession.hu, Zyntern, DreamJobs, etc.) IBS Career Office is also uploading those job offers to Moodle that were shared by our Strategic partner. Have a look at them here!

What should I do if I am looking for a job for long time and I am still struggling to find one?

Write an e-mail and we’ll help! There are no bad questions or unsolvable problems. Reach out to the Career Office and we will do everything to help you and assist you during this process. Our mail address: careeroffice@ibs-b.hu

How long my resume should be?

Usually, our advice is that a CV should fit in one page. However, it can last for max. two pages in case you have more than 5 years of work experience.

Do I need to attach a picture of myself in my CV?

It depends on the employers. Nowadays, most of them asks not to attach any pictures since it can be influential. However, the old routine demanded the pictures. It’s your decision.

Where should I send my CV if I want a review of it?

Send your CV to careeroffice@ibs-b.hu and we will review it and give you suggestions on how to improve it. Important: we do NOT want to criticise your work, we are just as determined to find a job for you as you are.

Placement

What exactly is placement?

Placement is an internship that our BSc students can take in their 5th semester. It has to long at least for 14 weeks in that specific semester.

Who is responsible to find the companies for the placement? IBS or the students?

The students are responsible to find a placement. However, IBS Career Office is there to help them find employment. Check our job offers here!

Why are placements useful?

The goal of the placement is to use the knowledge of our students in practice. Therefore, IBS students will already have professional experience before their graduation. It is no surprise that most of our graduates find a job within 3 months. It is also usual, that the company makes the students stay after their internship, so they already have job offer before even graduating.

Can I go to Erasmus instead of the placement?

Yes. In the 5th semester, you can choose if you rather want to participate in an Erasmus programme, take a CSR project class or go for a placement.

The company, I am going to work with during my placement, is not a strategic partner of IBS. Is that a problem?

You can of course work at any company you choose. Moreover, we are extremely happy if a company would like to cooperate with us in the future because of one of our students. In this case, write an e-mail to Zsófia Balogh-Simon.

My internship would be shorter than 14 week. What should I do?

Unfortunately, we only accept placements that last for at least 14 weeks. However, you can write to the Centre of Student Services who will have a revision of your situation.

Strategic Partnership

The company, I am going to work with during my placement, is not a strategic partner of IBS. Is that a problem?
