Questions concerning internships
Yes, we also want to provide students, who have not gained practical experience yet, with the possibility of doing so at ALTANA. Professional orientation as well as the exploration of a certain area of work should be the primary aim. In case of published job openings please notice the requirements ("Your recipe for success") which are stated in the job opening.
As Fair Company we committed ourselves to offer internships with the aim of gaining professional orientation and to refuse to exploit interns. Therefore as registered (niversity student or as a student between bachelor and master you are welcome to spend your internship at ALTANA. As a Fair Company we do not hire university graduates as interns.
We recommend internships with a duration of three to six months. This is the best possibility to get to know us properly. Furthermore, after your introductory training you will be able to take responsibility over your own tasks and to work on small projects independently. Of course we also offer internships with a shorter duration in individual cases.
Questions concerning the payment of internships, students who write their theses and apprenticeships
Interns who stay at least four weeks get paid according to the salary of apprentices in their first year (approx. 894 Euro/month). From the fourth month on we pay the statutory minimum wage.
If you have already completed an apprenticeship of a similar subject area before the start of your internship we will pay the statutory minimum wage straight from the beginning.
