Students Can Apply for Paid Internship in Germany Through Oct. 15
In our internationalized economy, employers look for candidates with experience living and working abroad. Consequently, students who have been able to study or intern abroad often have an advantage in the workplace.
Today, Syracuse University students have a unique new opportunity to develop their understanding of different cultures and business practices, and enhance their employability.
Syracuse University recently joined the German-American Exchange, allowing students to take part in a unique and prestigious summer internship program. The German-American Exchange is an unrivaled opportunity for undergraduates to gain real-world experience in some of Germany’s top companies. Plus, accepted students will receive a minimum gross stipend of EUR 735 per month, and up to four days of vacation time, depending on the company policy. The internships will run May 12-Aug. 7, 2020.
Who can apply?
Students from any major who have completed four semesters of study are invited to apply, but they must have successfully completed German 202 or have the equivalent language proficiency.
