Student Surveys Germany

Since 2004, Continental has been questioning science, engineering and economics students about their expectations for the world of work and their future prospects. The first survey was conducted in Germany in 2004. A year later, students from Romania were surveyed for the first time. In 2011, students from China also took part in the survey. The survey is conducted every year in Germany, as well as every two years in Romania and China.

Students and Young Professionals

The 11th “Continental Student Survey” in Germany in 2014 was the first to quiz not only students but also young professionals – recent graduates in the first few years of their working lives – about their work expectations, their work-life balance, and what they want from their careers.

Broadening Perspectives

Because the target group now comprises students and young professionals and the perspective has thus been broadened, Continental has decided to change the title of the survey to “Career Survey.” The survey now shows whether and how the views and attitudes of young people change after their initial professional experience. This is the first such insight into the development of young people from students into young professionals.
