Take a look at our seven Flexikum commandments.

Flexikum applicants: Welcome!

So you don't want to extend your studies in order to fit in a voluntary internship? We know what you mean. With the flexikum you don't have to do that. As the name suggests, it promises flexibility and lets you arrange your own working hours for a maximum period of 18 months respectively 1.000 hours.

In other words:

This means that you contact your Telekom team and agree to work between 55 and 130 hours per month. You can assign those hours as agreed within one month. Both you and the team need to be happy with the arrangement. We are considerate of stressful exam periods and compulsory lectures.

As a flexikum intern, your aim is to be integrated in your team, get acquainted with your tasks and, over the long term, get involved in projects. It works like this: It might be that you familiarize yourself with your subject matter during the semester break, and then work flexible part-time hours to look after your project once the new semester starts.
