The History of the Kepler Society.

One Service Center, Countless Opportunities.


The association FORUM Studium & Beruf was created in November 1999 to provide student support services after graduation and when pursuing a professional career, to improve job placement services, and to maintain and foster contact between the JKU and its graduates. The association's services ranged from opening a Career Advising Center to creating a JobNET database, and organizing an Alumni Association.
