Internship

  • Can I complete an internship between my Bachelor and Masters studies?

    Naturally, simply apply for one of the internship posts we are advertising.

    If there is no suitable job offer for you there, you can send your documents as part of an unsolicited application via our online application form. 


  • Can I complete an internship after finishing studying?

    Yes, Bachelor graduates, who subsequently want to begin their Masters studies are welcome to complete an internship with us. However, we cannot offer any internship positions to Masters graduates, because as part of the Fair-Company-Initiative, we have undertaken not to occupy any career entrant positions as internship positions.


  • How much time must I plan as a minimum for an internship?

    During an internship, we would like to involve you in projects and in our daily business. To enable you to be more intensively involved with your tasks, you should plan at least six weeks for an internship.

    Our tip: Through practical experience during your studies you can, on the one hand, test the career waters and, on the other hand, an internship often means more to a subsequent employer than a quick period of studies. 


  • Does HOCHTIEF offer internship positions abroad?

    In certain areas, you can also complete your internship abroad. You can find international internship posts in our job search.


  • Is an online application in English required for an internship abroad?

    Yes, please apply for an internship abroad with application documents in English. This enables colleagues at the foreign location to gain a first impression about you and the documents hence provide us with an insight of your English language skills.


  • Should I have completed an internship in my home country before an internship abroad?

    Yes, we recommend that you gain practical experience in your home country before an internship abroad. It is not absolutely necessary for you to have completed such an internship in your home country at our company—but it is frequently the quicker way to assignment abroad. 


  • Do I receive remuneration for my internship?

    As a member of the Fair Company initiative, we appropriately remunerate your internship. The payment varies, depending on what phase of your studies you are in, on duration and whether it involves a voluntary or mandatory internship. 


  • Do I have a right to vacation during my internship?

    We grant you vacation within the framework of the German Federal Paid Leave Act (Bundesurlaubsgesetz). Furthermore, you may take unpaid leave of absence for matters related to university (for instance, written or verbal examinations).
