Jobs & Internships in Germany

The KIT Career Service offers information to foreign students who want to apply in Germany.
The KIT Career Service provide detailed tips on various topics related to the application process, e.g., on how to prepare cover letter and curriculum vitae as well as how to prepare for a job interview.  
 

Praktikum

Practical activity in an institution outside the university (e.g. company, research institution), which is carried out over several weeks or months - usually full-time. Some degree programmes include a compulsory internship. Internships within the scope of the degree programme, i.e. curricular practical exercises, are not usually considered practical experience in the strict sense and are therefore not mentioned in the curriculum vitae.

Working Student (Werkstudent)

Practical activity in a company, which is carried out over a longer period of time (sometimes several years). In contrast to the internship, the time required here is only a maximum of 20 hours per week, possibly more during the semester breaks. The activity is usually related to the studies or later job.

„Hiwi-Job“(studentische Hilfskraft)

Practical activity at a university for a few hours per week - comparable to a working student job.

Nebenjob/Ferienjob

Practical activity, which is carried out for a few hours per week or only for a short time during the semester break (if necessary then also full-time). Often no direct reference to the subject of study, but rather a simpler (auxiliary) activity.
