Combining work and study

Our job placement service supports you

Would you like to work while studying or work during the semester vacations? For most students this is one way of financing their studies. Others may also find this is a good opportunity to gain initial experiences in the professional world.

No matter what it means to you - come and visit us! We give individual and friendly support in your search for a suitable student job.

We can also help you with questions regarding the social security insurance or, if you are an international student, in questions regarding the tax identification number or the application for a social security card.

Would you like to use our job placement service during your studies? It’s our pleasure. We are at your service if you are enrolled at the following universities in our area of responsibility:

1. Study at one of our universities
We as the Studentenwerk Potsdam are responsible for the students of the University of Potsdam, the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF, University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, the Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau and the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences. Are you enrolled at one of these universities? Then you may use our job placement service.

2. Register online
First you need to register online. The more details you give us, the better we can arrange jobs for you. Please upload the inquired documents. The data provided will be collected and stored exclusively for the purposes of the job placement. We will not disclose your data to third parties.

Please remember to send us an updated version of your certificate of enrollment at the beginning of a new semester, otherwise you unfortunately will be deleted from our system. However a new registration is possible, if interested.

Are there any questions? Please come and visit us personally once during our regular office hours.

3. Search for your (dream) job
Once we have all the information we need, you can look for suitable spare-time jobs on our job portal. You will receive the employer’s contact by email (Vermittlungsschein) and then you are ready to apply. We wish you the best of luck in your job search!

4. Feedback wanted

We want to continuously improve our service and we also want to know whether you successfully applied for jobs! We would be delighted to know how your job search is going. Send us a brief feedback to this email address: Jobs[at]

  • Health insurance card
  • Tax identification number
  • Social insurance card
  • Bank details
  • Identity card/passport with residence permit, if applicable
  • References and work samples (if asked for by the employer)

Jobs on a fee basis require a separate tax number.

Students from third countries with a restriction regarding their work permit (Section 16 of the German Residence Act - Aufenthaltsgesetz) are usually not allowed to work on a fee basis.

Tip: Let the exemption from turnover tax be registered when submitting the application; this makes it easier to provide proof to the tax office
