Internship duration

What about a full schedule? We offer internships starting at four weeks. After six months, our voluntary interns then head back to their universities. Mandatory internships can last as long as required by study regulations and guidelines. Just go to the tab "Our internships" and choose the version that matches your situation best. What's more, we are the only company that offers the so-called "flexiship." A flexiship is a voluntary internship that lets students put together a flexible working model together with their department.

Responsibility from the start

We are sure that you can make coffee. And use the printer. We don't need to teach you that on your internship. That's why we get you involved in project work. Keen to show your potential? You can. An internship with us means you get your own projects. And this could even develop into a topic for your thesis. We want to help you.

Make contacts

An internship is a great opportunity to gain work experience and to start building up contacts in the professional world. Having a large network of personal contacts is helpful – not only throughout your time with the company, but after your internship, too. And you should definitely use your social networks: You can contact current and former interns via the XING community Praktikum@Telekom.

Remuneration during your internship

No matter whether you are on a mandatory, voluntary or flexible internship – something remains constant: Your remuneration. It is based on your internship duration and is between 800 and 1.538 Euro.

Internships while you study
Because we believe in giving you the opportunity to apply your new know-how to real-life situations, we offer not only a wide range of vocational learning options, but also mandatory and voluntary internships that take place during your course of academic study.

To make sure that your mandatory internship is optimally integrated in your curriculum, our mandatory internships start with four weeks and continue as long as required by your study regulations. Please contact your university for information about study regulations.

You can participate in a voluntary internship at any time during your course of study. The duration of these internships ranges from four weeks to a maximum of six months. During your internship you are entitled to holidays as stipulated by applicable labor laws. If you are interested in an internship that fits well with your daily study schedule, we recommend our flexiship – the flexible internship. This alternative requires individual planning and can last up to a maximum period of two years. We will be happy to advise you personally about flexible scheduling.

Internships in the gap year
Graduates in their gap year who want to gain valuable work experience in advance of their master's program can take advantage of internships ranging from four weeks to six months in duration. These can also be offered as flexiships.

No matter whether you are on a mandatory, voluntary or flexikum – we make sure that you have a responsible task to fulfill in one of our areas of innovation, and you can expect an appropriate monthly remuneration. We look forward to receiving your application!
