Stating yourself as job seeking

You have finished your studies at Kiel University but don’t have a job in sight immediately?

Then it might be good to state yourself as job-seeking.
You have to state yourself as job-seeking 3 months prior to the finishing of your studies or the ending of your employment contract.

How can I state myself as job-seeking?

You have the options to state yourself job-seeking by phone 0800 4 555500, online or personally at the office in Kiel at Adolf-Westphal-Str. 2, 24143 Kiel.

The office hours of the office in Kiel are

Mo: 07:30 – 12:30
Di: 07:30 – 12:30
Mi: 07:30 – 12:30
Do: 07:30 – 12:30 and 14:00 – 18:00
Fr: 07:30 – 12:30

What are the benefits for stating yourself job-seeking?

You have access to the consultation services of the Federal Employment Agency.

If you don’t state yourself as job-seeking, you are not able to get the financial support for your application process such as application photos.


If you have questions or problems you can always tend to the “Team akademische Berufe” of the Federal Employment Agency.
They can be found Tuesday to Thursday from 08:30am – 12:30pm in the “Uni-Büro” in the Audimax (Room number 118, opposite of the Hörsaal A).
If the Audimax is closed, you can ring the bell at the side entrance at the south eastern side next to the office.
